Kaiko Systems uses advanced data analysis and intelligent decision support to help ships reduce incidents and downtime. Its tool combines verified data streams from merchant vessels into valuable information for shore teams.
Orion will use the tool to reduce time spent on surveys and reporting and enable higher confidence in processes and outcomes.
The first step is conducting all safety-related inspections including regular assessments of all firefighting and life-saving equipment for potential defects with Kaiko Systems. Following a successful three-month test period, the AI-enabled SaaS solution by Kaiko Systems will be rolled out across the entire Orion Reederei fleet, with plans to include areas like technical data and machine information in the future too.
“Our greatest responsibility is to guarantee safety aboard all our vessels. That’s why we’re always looking at new solutions to help optimise our processes,” said Julius Reith, project manager at Orion Reederei. “Kaiko Systems offers a user-friendly product that allows the crew to collect reliable data on the condition of our fire protection and safety equipment. We can see immediately when something needs to be repaired or replaced. Not only does it cut the time and cost of essential analyses, inspections, and reporting, but it reduces the number of faults and incidents.”
The automated, AI-based data analysis tool identifies potential incidents before they occur, and provides decision-makers with reliable information so they can work proactively. Data is collected using a smartphone app featuring smart checklists and automatic reminders.
“We’re excited about working with Orion Reederei and look forward to a collaboration that opens up the dry bulk market to us,” stated Fabian Fussek, founder and CEO of Kaiko Systems. “Improvements to the sector’s safety standards are always a hot topic. The DryBMS quality standard, recently launched by RightShip and Intercargo to raise the bar on safety, environmental and operational excellence, is one example. Kaiko Systems provides shipping companies in the dry bulk segment with a valuable tool, offering a comprehensive insight into the health of their vessels and uncovering optimisation potential.”
The Berlin-based company recently closed a six-figure financing round and will use these assets to further advance the product, target new sectors of the shipping industry and connect stakeholders more closely.
