OneOcean opens new base in Japan

OneOcean Japan apr 1

OneOcean has opened up a new office in Tokyo, Japan to capitalise on growing demand for its products. The new base in central Tokyo will enable OneOcean to provide more dedicated support to its local clients as the company continues to expand its operational capacity.


It will further assist the Japanese shipping industry’s move to digitalisation with its comprehensive range of navigation and compliance products. Almost 20,000 vessels worldwide currently use OneOcean’s services to aid regulatory and passage planning activities.


Martin Taylor, chief executive officer of OneOcean, said: “We are excited to be opening this new Tokyo office to provide a dedicated service for local customers. Japan is already a major market for us and we see excellent scope for further expansion in this region which has always been enthusiastic about embracing the change to digitalisation.”


He continued: “We have seen a growing demand, specifically in this region for our digital products, especially OneOcean’s Regs4Ships and EnviroManager to help fulfil MARPOL requirements.”


Leading OneOcean’s Tokyo office as general manager is Takashi Nakagawa, who has been managing the company’s operations in the country in recent years. Mr Nakagawa has over 20 years’ experience in the maritime industry, bringing exceptional industry knowledge and expertise, having helped vessels transfer from paper to digital navigation from the technology’s inception.


Speaking about the new office, Mr Nakagawa said: “I believe the Japanese market is ripe for expansion and OneOcean’s increasing investment recognises that opportunity. Through the use of OneOcean’s exceptional Total Voyage solutions, I look forward to further aiding the industry’s adoption of digital systems.”

Shipowners and operators using Kongsberg’s Vessel Insight platform can now improve performance and reporting, and reduce fuel and energy consumption through the company’s new application Vessel Performance.

KVH Industries has launched KVH Link, a new digital content service that will deliver both enhanced news and entertainment content to improve crew wellbeing and better operational data to optimise vessel performance.
