Oldendorff Chooses PAS ε-ORB Software
Cyprus-based maritime technology & marine risk prevention firm Prevention at Sea Ltd has been awarded a contract from Oldenorff Carriers for switching from the traditional paper Oil Record Book to ε-ORB (electronic Oil Record Book).
Oldendorff Carriers’ decision was based on recognition of the burdens arising from the use of the traditional paper version of MARPOL Oil Record Books as well as the complexity and accuracy of recording proper operational entries relating to discharges, transfers and other operations as required under MARPOL Annex I, regulations 17 (Part I) and 36 (Part II).
The signing of a comprehensive fleet agreement involves a staggered roll out of ε-ORB across the Oldendorff fleet starting with adopting the software for each vessel’s tank configuration, vessel installation, user training, follow-through and continuous support.
ε-ORB is the first electronic oil record book approved by major flag registries and authorities is used to electronically record the required entries for discharges, transfers and other operations as required under MARPOL Annex I, regulations 17 (Part I) and 36 (Part II).
