Zeaborn digitalises Hazardous Materials maintenance

Zeaborn Ship Management has completed a project to digitalise its Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM), introducing a new system for automation of updates to its inventory data and reports as circumstances change over time.

After having completed IHM preparation and certification for the majority of its fleet, Zeaborn Ship Management worked with NautilusLog and SGS to automate the IHM Maintenance process to ensure that ongoing maintenance could be performed digitally in an efficient manner.

The new system reacts as soon as a change on a vessel occurs and the IHM report is updated, triggered by actions such as adding machines or equipment, the renewal of spare parts lists, structural repairs and even hull painting.

“This automatization allows us to keep our desks free of work whilst having full transparency and control of the processes,” said Sven Henze, Senior Vice President Procurement at Zeaborn Ship Management.

“NautilusLog supports our strategy of having paperless offices. Our major focus is always on our customers: we provide services that allow a good overview with reasonable administrative effort. Second important topic for us is data protection and controlled access. We recently certified the whole company to ISO 27001 standards and our cooperation with NautilusLog suits well into our strategy of digitalisation.”

“Over the past two months, since implementation, SGS and the NautilusLog solution managed the whole IHM Maintenance process saving Zeaborn Ship Management significant time and effort so we were able to focus on our daily work.”
