Dredging International (DI) is a global leader in dredging and land reclamation. DI’s high-tech fleet of trailing suction hopper dredgers and cutter suction dredgers take leading roles in port construction in countries including India, France, Singapore, Australia and Uruguay.
DI was required to comply with International Safety Management (ISM) regulations including requirements for its fleet, operating all over the world, to hold up-to-date health and safety documentation. The company deployed Microsoft SharePoint as a central repository for this and other information. In order to ensure each individual vessel had the very latest information, the Microsoft SharePoint portal would have to be replicated over expensive satellite connections. To do this would normally entail very high data costs.
