Weilbach secures IMO approval for digital logbook


Danish maritime software solutions and products supplier, Weilbach, has achieved certification for its new digital logbook platform.

The digital logbook platform is called WENDIS OneLog and was launched last year. By digitalising logbooks, shipowners can save time spent on administrative tasks and communication between seafarers on board and the office ashore.

The software has been developed and tested with shipowners to approve it as an accurate and realistic replacement for paper logbooks. With this, the platform is now approved according to the IMO regulation MEPC.312(74) to be used solely on board in place of paper logbooks.

The OneLog software solution closely replicates paper logbooks. This makes it easy to use for seafarers and enables them to get the platform up and running straight away while staying compliant with regulations.

The details of the vessel do not need to be entered in every logbook in OneLog. Vessel details are only added once. OneLog will then share the details with the logbooks in the system. For audit purposes, all data put into OneLog is saved in the history, even if the data is deleted. According to Weilbach, secure role-based access maintains procedures on board.

“The market is looking for digital solutions that can support shipowners and seafarers in simplifying communication between the ships and the office ashore. By digitalising logbooks, all information and communication are available and visible online immediately,” said Martin Mikkelsen, director of business development, Weilbach.

“This means that shipowners can cut costs by not spending time and money waiting for the right information from the ship and sending logbooks to vessels with a courier. Also, they can report back to their customers and visualise information about e.g. fuel consumption, the route and who is on board because this is part of the data in the log books.”
