OneOcean updates LogCentral for environmental monitoring

LogCentral, OneOcean’s electronic record book software, has been expanded to offer integrated environmental record keeping with four new digital record books.

The additions include a Seal Register Record Book, Biofouling Record Book, Sewage Record Book, and Scrubber Record Book. The digital records provide a timestamp for onboard events that can be accessed, cross-referenced, and analysed by shoreside teams.

The updates will allow companies to better analyse log entries across their fleets to gain a clear picture of when and where emissions, discharges and other onboard events are occurring in relation to navigational factors, OneOcean says.

Users can review applicable regulations along a planned route, on a map interface and with colour-coded waste streams indicating whether actions are legal, legal with conditions, or illegal. Environmental operations can be planned where suitable throughout a voyage and events monitored along a live timeline.

“Our goal with LogCentral was not to simply digitise MARPOL record books, but to provide our customers with a way to reduce workload onboard, and finally be able to analyse these operational events in the context of a voyage,” said Martin Taylor, OneOcean CEO.

“Having these environmental records in electronic format enables better decision making and oversight. We look forward to continuing to work with our customers and partners to drive adoption of new ideas and standards in this era of change. The future looks very bright.”
