WinGD joined the Shipdex™ Maintenance Group in 2017, to support, guide and develop this industry documentation standard.

WinGD is preparing Shipdex™ compliant engine documentation. Operation Manuals, Maintenance Manuals and Spare Part Catalogues will be available in both paper and electronic format to be directly downloaded by the Ship Management Software on-board the vessel.

The first engine documentation set available is for the X52 engine. Further Shipdex™ compliant engine sets will be made available once complete. Shipdex™ is a marine business related adaptation of the S1000D standard (, a collection of international business rules, and is developed to standardise and improve the production, the exchange and the use of technical information between equipment makers, shipyards and ship owners. It allows an exchange of information via XML based data modules. The electronic data format approach allows automatic updating of the data-base by receiving Shipdex™ compliant Service Bulletins.
