Tanker vetting management tool launched

Oceanfile has launched a software designed to help tanker operators manage vetting and inspections.

Called Oceanfile, after the company that has developed it, the system provides web-based applications, integrating the main functions associated with the major inspection programmes and managing all details of the inspections conducted on each vessel.

The Oceanfile Observation History tool lists every instance of observations associated with each Inspection Report question, which helps keeping track of past observations and of the operator’s responses to those observations.

The Oceanfile Chart Wizard can create user-defined charts, with filters to select date range, IMO vessel types, sister vessels, or personnel.

The software can also search and display performance results for individual vessels, sister ships, vessel type, regional managing offices and personnel responsibilities, as well as a Planner function which sends reminders when action are required.

Additional features are under development, such as an Inspection Costs Manager and Audit tools to facilitate self-inspections and navigation audits.

Oceanfile is a subscription-based program designed for oil, chemical and gas tanker operators who deal with oil company vetting programmes.

A free trial of the software is available at
