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}

  • ClassNK, JMU, NAPA complete feasibility study on 3D models for shipbuilding

    ClassNK, Japan Marine United (JMU), and NAPA have completed a joint feasibility study on 3D model-based plan approval using 3D CAD models as part of their technical investigation project.

    Shipbuilding designs are gradually transitioning from 2D drawings to those designed with 3D CAD software. Classification societies, whose plan approvals are currently based mostly on 2D drawings, are also required to develop a scheme for 3D CAD models from their submission to their examination completion.

    This project was conducted to examine the technical development required in each process of plan approval by JMU, NAPA, and ClassNK to realise 3D model-based plan approval. In the feasibility study, ClassNK conducted a trial evaluation for hull structural design on a 3D CAD model of 300,000DWT ore carrier designed and created by JMU, using NAPA Designer, a 3D CAD software application for ship design developed by NAPA, as a 3D model viewer. Plan submission, storage, and notification of examination results were made using the Society's electronic plan examination system NK-PASS.

    The investigation concluded that information required for class approval can be confirmed through a 3D CAD model, and that "NK-PASS" is also compatible with 3D CAD models. The results of this survey will serve as a basis for future technical studies, and the Society will continue to work with the industry to realise 3D model-based plan approval.

    Mr. Hayato Suga, corporate officer and director of plan approval and technical solution division said “This study has proven the future potential of 3D model-based approvals. 3D based design can be the key to improving digital solutions in the ship industry, including the ship design process, approval process and later fleet maintenance. I hope that the entire industry will also quickly realise the many opportunities and increased efficiency that can be achieved as a result of this initiative. The vessels of the future will be able to accommodate much better and safer designs in shorter amounts of time.”
