The Kiel-based navigation specialist Anschütz has added new books and functions to its electronic logbook “eLog”.

According to Anschütz, the eLog automates documentation on board and paves the way for paperless ship operation. An extensive upgrade has now been released for the eLog, which significantly expands the range of functions and the books included, according to the manufacturer.

With the upgrade, Anschütz can offer the eLog in several license levels for different use cases. A basic license includes the deck logbook, the bell book and the engine logbook and is ideal for small vessels such as tugs, workboats or coast guard vessels. There are also licenses for cargo ships, container ships and tankers, as well as a comprehensive selection of books and reports for ships that operate paperless.

“With the upgrade of the eLog, we can offer our customers probably the most comprehensive electronic logbook on the market with full class approval,” says Volker Wenzel, responsible for the technical marketing of the eLog.

The basic eLog function “logbook management” is extended by functions such as cloud access, secure file upload, speech-to-text, lunch report, watch orders and IMO crew lists.

Anschütz has approval from DNV

Anschütz has introduced the eLog to replace error-prone manual data entry with an automated and secure digital process chain. It is designed in accordance with ISO standard 21745:2019 and MEPC 312 (74). It is also class-approved by DNV and accepted by the major flags as a replacement for paper logbooks.

With eLog, all navigation, operational, environmental, safety and ship management records are provided in a digital and secure format. Automatic and manual data entry ensures consistency, transparency and efficiency in maritime documentation. Secure and tamper-proof blockchain technology is used to store the data, and owners have full data control and access at all times.
