Odfjell looks to new levels of efficiency with NAVTOR fleet agreement

Odfjell is set to roll out NAVTOR e-navigation solutions throughout its entire fleet. The move will increase operational efficiency, while greatly reducing the number of man-hours spent on administration across the ship owner’s 50 deep-sea vessels.

E-navigation specialist NAVTOR will now facilitate Odfjell’s transition from paper charts to paperless navigation, ensuring that all vessels meet the class deadline for compliance with the IMO’s ECDIS mandate (July 2015). The 40,000 dwt Bow Sky is the first ship to adopt NAVTOR’s AVCS service, with a further roll out planned throughout Q1 and Q2 2015.

“This will be a revolutionary change for the Odfjell teams on the bridge,” states NAVTOR Marketing and Communications Manager Willy Zeiler.

“The administration of paper charts takes many hours each week – it is a necessary yet laborious use of man hours. However, with NAVTOR’s digital ENC service it’s simple, taking just a few minutes. That frees up valuable time for the bridge team, allowing them to focus on other important operational tasks, while also increasing job satisfaction, reducing fatigue and, therefore, boosting safety.

“Fleet-wide, this switch will make a real impact on Odfjell’s day to day operations.”
