Odfjell moves to digital logbooks

Odfjell Ship Management has begun a project to digitalise its fleet reporting through the use of a new digital logbook system to replace its hand-written logbooks.

The company will use Kongsberg Digital’s K-fleet digital logbook system, which collects data directly from ship systems into a central storage repository to support recording of event-based data related to navigation, engine, oil record book, garbage handling, port calls and other operational activities.

“Accurate and efficient reporting is very important for us and our crew, and we strongly believe that digitalisation is a necessary step towards improving safety, efficiency, and sustainability in the maritime industry,” said Vidar Børve, Manager Electrical & Automation at Odfjell.

“The traditional hand-written logbook has long been a vital tool for recording the vessel’s route, voyage, actions, and engine status. But it can be a time-consuming process. That’s why we’ve taken the step to modernise and optimise our operations by implementing Kongsberg Digital’s effective digital logbook and reporting system.”
