Digital log book certified according to IMO regulation
Weilbach, the Danish maritime software solutions and products supplier, has just achieved certification for their new digital log book platform. By digitalising log books, ship owners can save time spent on administrative tasks and communication between seafarers on board and the office ashore.
The digital log book platform is called Wendis OneLog and was launched last year. The software has been developed and tested with ship-owners to approve it as an accurate and realistic replacement for paper log books. With this, the platform is now approved according to the IMO regulation MEPC.312(74) to be used solely on board in place of paper log books.
“The market is looking for digital solutions that can support ship owners and seafarers in simplifying communication between the ships and the office ashore. By digitalising log books, all information and communication are available and visible online immediately,” says Martin Mikkelsen, Director of Business Development, Weilbach and continues:
“This means that shipowners can cut costs by not spending time and money waiting for the right information from the ship and sending log books to vessels with a courier. Also, they can report back to their customers and visualise information about e.g. fuel consumption, the route and who is on board because this is part of the data in the log books.”
