Lloyds’ Register buys Seasafe Marine software company

Lloyd’s Register (LR), a global engineering, technical and business services organization, has acquired Seasafe Marine Software & Computation in order to improve the company’s ship emergency response service.

Seasafe specializes in onboard loading and stability software to help operators manage the stability of vessels and offshore structures, from passenger ships, heavy-lift vessels and FPSOs to semi-submersibles and jack-up rigs.

Brighton-based Seasafe will relocate to LR’s Southampton Global Technology Centre to sit alongside the ship emergency response service (SERS) team and provide necessary calculations through its naval architecture software.

The company’s SERS provides emergency preparedness and response so that the decision-making process reduces risks to human life, the environment and client assets.

SERS uses Seasafe’s software for vessel modeling and calculations which help a team of naval architects and specialists to be ready to respond to incidents.

Nial McCollam, LR’s Chief Technology Officer, said: “This is another important step in building global software solutions that create value for our customers. Our global technology and innovation team is also developing a range of innovative data and digital solutions, such as remote presence inspections, cyber-security, additive manufacturing and asset lifecycle management, harnessing and developing the capabilities within our Global Technology Centres in Singapore and Southampton.”
