OSM Thome moves Finnish tanker fleet to digital logbooks

Ship management company OSM Thome is to implement electronic logbooks from nauticAi for its managed fleet of Finnish-flagged tankers, with M/T Uikku the first vessel to go paperless.

The nauticAi Log system has been tested on board Uikku for a period of five months, during which time the software has been customised to fit operational reporting requirements.

The system will be integrated with nauticAi’s associated BOQA web platform to improve the automation of items such as statements of fact, vessel route monitoring, cargo owner reports, ESG reporting, and EU-MRV/DCS/CII data collection and direct submission to DNV’s Veracity platform.

“Our mission has always been to go that extra mile to be our customer’s first preference to provide safe, high quality and reliable services, and we feel that the technology and customer service provided by nauticAi supports us greatly in our daily work,” said Mikko Varpio, Managing Director of OSM Ship Management Finland.

“We are especially happy to hear the very positive feedback from our vessel and we see the great potential these electronic logbooks can offer us when it comes to digitalising and automating our Safety, Health, Quality and Environmental reporting.”

Finnish maritime IT company nauticAi developed the digital logbook system in accordance with international regulations, such as IMO Res. A.916(22), ISO 21745:2019 and IMO MEPC.312(74), to be used in place of paper logbooks and allow the capture of logbook data by reporting systems to be fully digitalised. The software is bult on an open API structure to enable integration with third-party applications and IT processes.

Roll-out of the system on board the rest of OSM Thome’s Finnish flagged tankers is expected to be completed during the first half of 2024.
