MARPOL compliance software developed by ChartCo and Seaspan

ChartCo and shipping company Seaspan have worked together to develop a new location-based system which aims to assist vessels in complying with MARPOL regulations relating to environmental issues.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}EnviroManager is available as part of ChartCo’s PassageManager software package or as a standalone application, with Seaspan having provided product development input and conducted pilots of the software on a number of its vessels.

Using a GPS feed and a regularly updated geographic database, including all agreed national and international baselines, EnviroManager provides a colour coded system to advise the crew what discharges are and are not permitted at any position worldwide including bilge water, sewage, air emissions, garbage, food waste and ballast.

“ChartCo’s mission is to assist our customers to sail safely, efficiently and in compliance with all maritime legislation. Our customer base explained the problems that they were having with adhering to the environmental guidelines and we were pleased to work with Seaspan to develop a solution,” said Martin Taylor, managing director of ChartCo.{/mprestriction}
