February 27 - Conquest Offshore has purchased maritime consultancy firm MirTac's Star software and related database implementation services.

The Star software will assist Conquest Offshore with the management of maintenance planning, inspections, purchasing and spare parts, document control, safety and environmental procedures and onboard barge administration.

Conquest Offshore selected MirTac based on its proven track record in the offshore industry. The fleet management system will reduce down time and support the barge master with detailed instructions and ready to use procedures on board.

"The Conquest MB 1 is an innovative multipurpose crane batch which can install wind turbine foundations as well as play a part in transporting and unloading heavy equipment. We are looking forward to supporting them in their day-to-day operations," said Barend Tooten, managing director of MirTac.
