Electronic logbook adds monthly package

NAPA reports that it has now made its electronic logbook system available as a monthly service, and integrated the application with the company’s NAPA Mobile system to support smartphone logbook entries wherever the crew are onboard.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}NAPA Logbook already serves approximately 8,000 users and is approved by more than 20 flag states, including the Bahamas, Marshall Islands, Panama, Malta and Singapore. The tamper-proof system provides backups for all recorded information, including the data required to be logged under EU MRV and Ballast Water Management Convention rules.

The logbook covers multiple logs and record books including deck log, engine log, oil record book, GMDSS, garbage record book and ballast log, drawing data from automated signals where interfaced, other NAPA systems like NAPA Loading Computer or Performance Optimisation, and other logbook entries as well as manual entries.

“The maritime industry has spent much of the last few years speaking about autonomous ships while many ships still lack the basic automation that could reduce workload, increase reporting accuracy and deliver data in a legible, indexed and searchable form,” said Jussi Siltanen, product manager, safety solutions at NAPA.

“This technology has been available for more than a decade, but the cost of entry has been a barrier for some ship owners and operators. This despite the fact that six- and seven-figure penalties for falsifying or failing to maintain an accurate oil record book have become all too common in recent years – just one reporting struggle that a digital logbook can solve.”{/mprestriction}
