Keystone Shipping Monitors Cargo Ships 24/7 While at Port in Lay-Up
David Deltano has been managing fleets of cargo ships for over a decade – in salt and fresh water. Based in Duluth, Minn., as a fleet manager for Keystone Shipping, Deltano is responsible for vessels while they are en route and at port.
Vessels routinely face winter lay-up January through March, as well as lay-up in shipyards for maintenance and tonnage reductions. During these times, they are largely unattended, especially on the weekends, and subject to damage from unexpected incidents like leaks, fires and power outages. A remote monitoring system safeguards the vessels, and the company recently upgraded to Sensaphone systems for additional protection and convenience.
