Columbia takes optimisation to the next level with opening of their Performance Optimisation Control Room. The Control Room was officially opened by Ms. Natasa Pilides, Cyprus Deputy Minister of Shipping, who in her speech highlighted “the growth of Columbia and the quality of its operations is a result of the excellent culture, the extremely high calibre and the hard work of its people.”

This project has been made possible through the excellent support of our project partners Tototheo Maritime. Centralising operations will give Columbia the ability to better deal with fast- changing scenarios and developments as they happen.

With 24/7/365 support, CSM will be able to have even faster decision making and greater visibility by using modern technology to achieve cost efficient vessel operations. The Control Room functions, amongst others will optimise vessel safety, security and fuel consumption operations.
