Specifically, the software will help the management of the response to casualties by providing crew with relevant guidance to support each situation and restore system functionality.
It is stated that the software monitors the response in real time and simplifies a complex logistics process by assigning tasks to groups, either through Wi-Fi connected devices or in paper format, with the required details needed to complete the actions.
To explain, the Safe Return to Port Onboard is designed to provide an onboard knowledge base which can be improved after every drill, continuously increasing the efficiency of the SRtP casualty response process.
Giovanni Canu, Vice President Special Projects and Operational Support at Norwegian Cruise Line commented that “In order to ensure our fleet is ready for the operational requirements of Safe Return to Port regulations, we selected Brookes Bell’s SRtP Onboard software. This offers an efficient and informative solution that has already successfully been installed on Norwegian Encore and will be installed on the rest of our Breakaway Plus class vessels. We also expect to extend this solution to Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway.”
