From a press release from our Partner Metizoft:
“We are pleased to see that more and more cruise companies see the benefit of using Metizoft’s experience and turnkey solution for maintenance and updating of the Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) as regulated by EU’s Ship Recycling Regulation”, says Chief Marketing Officer at Metizoft, Mr. Øyvind Sundgot.
Viking Line operates seven cruise ships in the Baltic Sea, all of which will receive HazMat inspections and subsequent IHM updating by Metizoft. The first ship to be handled by Metizoft is M/S Viking Cinderella, which sails between Mariehamn and Stockholm.
“We see IHM maintenance as not part of our core business so we are satisfied to reach an agreement with Metizoft who has long experience in doing this as their main job”, says Fleet Manager at Viking Line, Mr. Joacim Westerlund.
