ChartCo and Klappir Green Solutions have partnered to market digital logbooks and software solutions focusing on the provision of reporting, monitoring, compliance and validation services, within the ChartCo OneOcean platform.

Digital logbooks enable comprehensive ship data to be recorded in an environmentally-responsible manner, conforming to guidance from the IMO and MARPOL. As well as recording a ship’s position, course and distance travelled, electronic logbooks also catalogue environmentally-sensitive aspects such as fuel usage and discharges, garbage disposal and greenhouse gas emissions.

“We are really pleased about our partnership with Klappir,” said Martin Taylor, CEO of ChartCo. “Their environmental maritime software complements our broad range of digital solutions and is a logical extension of our EnviroManager solution which empowers crews to comply with environmental regulations. It’s very exciting to enhance our offering to customers with e-record books.”

Onboard data recorded into the digital logbooks will be automatically synchronised via the ChartCo OneOcean cloud, allowing shoreside management to monitor fleet activity, conduct trend analysis and benchmarking exercises, and submit records to regulatory authorities.

Additionally, logging data digitally both simplifies and shortens a complex and time-consuming manual process and helps to eliminate errors.
