This is to place on record that we have used the Digital Paint Report ‘DPR’ system, during the docking of our 2 vessels. We have found this system to be very user friendly & extremely useful to centrally locate all Information, Data & Status of painting jobs carried out, in an easy retrievable manner. We will continue to use this DPR system on our vessels and have no hesitation in recommending its usage.
The Digital Paint Report software is a user friendly and simple tool to record and secure the blasting and coating documents which are being used for Maintenance, Refurbishment and New constructions. We have used the ‘DPR’ system as a Pilot during the external Tank coating repair work. Our experience is that it is user friendly and useful tool to centrally locate, secure the documents and manage all Information: Regular reports, Data and Status of painting jobs carried out, in an easy manner.
This platform will be very useful for all the stakeholders; paint manufacturer, applicators, inspectors & end users. Industry was looking for something like that since long. We will not only be able to keep the records, we can monitor, maintain & secure with minimum effort by the way it has been designed. Thanks to SteelCorr and DNV GL for taking this initiative and making it available to us. This will help organization one step towards digitalization of this segment of the work.
Multiple stakeholders involved in a Paint application project will benefit from a standardized ‘SSPC QP Compliant’ reporting system. Currently the industry currently grapples with varied versions of Paint application reports used by various shipyards/contractors. A unified system will provide transparency & visibility. It will promote involvement of all stakeholders; thus enabling ‘Informed decisions’ on cost optimization, benchmarking & performance monitoring.
