Tallink Grupp adopts e-logbooks

Tallink Grupp has completed the deployment of a new electronic logbook system from nauticAi across its fleet, following a prototype development and pilot process carried out last year.

The system was first tested on the company’s Paldiski-Kapellskär cargo ship Sailor, so that the application could be tweaked to meet the specific needs of Tallink Grupp’s fleet.

The new system enables the company’s vessels to log a range of data digitally instead of using traditional paper logbooks, including fuel consumption data, garbage (discharge) data, ship’s radio watch data, ballasting operations, fuel bunkering operations and others.

The software then shares the data with shore back-office support functions, making real-time vessel and voyage data available across the company for monitoring and identification of areas for operational improvements.

“Our long cooperation with the nauticAi team, introducing a number of useful data systems for our vessels already for many years, meant that when the team came to us with another idea for a new solution that would give us greater efficiencies across vessel operations, it was an immediate agreement to develop such a solution,” said Tallink Grupp’s Chief Captain and Head of Ship Management, Captain Tarvi-Carlos Tuulik.

“The prototype development and pilot phase of the electronic logbooks on Sailor with the professional vessel crew was a detailed six-month project, during which time nauticAi and our team developed an excellent core solution to which additional data sets and building blocks were added during the pilot phase.”

“We now believe we have yet another great system in place on our vessels as a result of this partnership, which will serve us well from both operational excellence as well as sustainable operations point of view.”
