When building ships, vessels and yachts, it is crucial to have full control of the sealing and fire protection systems, especially when the time schedule is tight. Installation firm Team Electric benefits from using Roxtec software to manage all cable transits onboard digitally.
“Roxtec Transit Build™ is a brilliant application. It helps me save a lot of time working with cable transits, at least 50 percent and sometimes even more”, says Kaupo Sobko, team leader at Team Electric.
Kaupo Sobko is responsible for cable transit installations during the construction of a cruise ship in Spain. Although the project was running out of time, he had the courage to try a new tool, Roxtec Transit Build™. The reason was that he saw possibilities to rapidly digitalize the process of installing, quality securing and registering cable transits and thereby catch up with the time schedule.
“It is so easy to use. It took me just one day to understand the complete system. I am very happy with the digital tool, and so is my team of installers. Roxtec Transit Build™ makes it so easy to locate the right cable transit, make it ready for inspection and then share the information with inspectors.”
Sharing information online
Using Roxtec Transit Build™, Kaupo Sobko can report the status of each cable transit into the software and thereby contribute to the establishment of a digital cable transit register. All the information can easily be shared online with installers and inspectors. There is a requirement from authorities that during this construction work, a complete cable transit seal systems register must be set up.
Reducing the paperwork
Before discovering the digital way of working, Team Electric used printed drawings and papers to localize which cable transits to work on. Now, each cable transit has its own QR code and activity log.
“It is great to be able to use the app on the phone in the field to locate the cable transit and then just scan the QR code to get the information you need to do the work. It is also good to be able to see the complete cable transit list and the overview with status for each one on the drawings on the computer.”
Roxtec Transit Build™ presents the status by a simple traffic light system, where the color indicates if the cable transit is open and in need of corrective actions or if it is ready for inspection or ready to go. Kaupo Sobko already recommends other contractors around him to start using the Roxtec software.
“The more users, the better it is. We have language barriers in the shipyards, but everybody is technically skilled today when it comes to smartphones so it might be helpful also for overcoming some communication issues. I will absolutely use this application in many projects to manage cable transits.”
