Singapore-based ship management company Thome Group has agreed a deal with OneOcean – newly formed after the merger of ChartCo and Marine Press – to implement the integrated OneOcean platform to cover all of its navigational, regulatory and environmental data requirements.
The OneOcean platform includes the PassageManager, Regs4Ships and EnviroManager applications, and will aid in the management of a range of vessel processes, such as providing a visual reference for all MARPOL mandates and ensuring compliance with the 2020 Global Sulphur Cap, which comes into force next month.
The system will also highlight the latest publications and regulatory updates for international flag-state-specific regulations, to ensure crews are kept fully informed and compliant at all times.
“Shipping is one of the most regulated industries in the world, so deploying EnviroManager and Regs4Ships will be of invaluable assistance to us, enabling the easy and efficient administration of MARPOL and associated regulations,” said Capt Atul Vatsa, Vice President and Head of Compliance (Environmental, Marine & Safety) at Thome Group.
“As we manage fleets on a global basis, we are under constant scrutiny to audit our compliance to a dizzying variety of environmental laws all over the world. We value OneOcean’s help in ensuring that total compliance is achieved right across our fleets, in addition to making a significant contribution towards the successful digitalisation of our vessels.”
