Rolls Royce Installs Autoload® Onboard Stability Software

Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) is pleased to announce their UK Dealer, Autoship Systems UK, has delivered the first 3 Autoload installations to Rolls Royce Marine & Electrical Systems for installation on board the Samudra Prahari, Samudra Paharedar and the Samudra Pavak.

These Pollution Control Vessels are being built at the ABG Shipyard in India for the Indian
Coastguard Service. ABG Shipyard, the largest private yard in India, has tasked Rolls-Royce in the design & development of three pollution control vessels for the Indian Coast Guard. These ships, based on the Rolls-Royces UT517 ship design, will assist in minimizing the damage caused by potential environmental crises – particularly oil spills – from aging merchant ships in Indian waters. The vessels will feature a range of Rolls-Royce propulsion, steering and motion control equipment and will be built at the ABG Shipyard in Surat.

Autoload is the state of the art software for onboard stability. The program is available in versions suitable for any vessel type and, most importantly, can handle any type or combination of cargo. ASC has delivered systems ranging from an integrated ship planning system for the complete Wallenius Wilhelmsen fleet to an integrated onboard stability solution for Thunderhorse – the biggest semisubmersible rig ever built. At present, Autoload has been installed onboard more than 400 vessels.
