Introducing ε-ORB

ε-ORB, a multi-award wining* maritime software application, was developed with the aim to enhance efficiency on board while demonstrating compliance with requirements of International Conventions and Flag Registries in relation to the Electronic Oil Record Book.
(*Lloyd’s List Americas 2017 Maritime Services Award, Lloyd’s List Asia Innovation Award 2017, NAMEPA Innovation award 2017, Tanker Shipping & Trade Conference Technical Innovation Award 2017).
 
The ε-ORB promotes transparency, credibility and traceability in accordance with the MARPOL and IMO Circ. 736/Circ.2 requirements. It has been designed to be used for the preparation, filling out and printing of your traditional Oil Record book (Part I and Part II) and preparing for the paperless record-keeping of the near future.
 
A Marine user friendly maritime software application; its installation by the user is easy and facilitates accurate ORB entries into an efficient electronic format. It simulates the same hard copy process in a digitized form without affecting the daily routine of recording ORB operational entries. 
 
The concept of the ε-ORB is to provide a paperless solution for efficient record keeping as it is focused on preventing vague entries, incorrect ORB format and code mismatches.
 
ε-ORB guards against practical ORB issues such us: 
  • Oil record books reported missing on board
  • Failure to document entries in ORB of internal transfer of oily mixture
  • Discrepancies between entry into ORB and actual capacity of the oily water separator
  • Falsification of log entries

The ε-ORB software application has been certified by Lloyd’s Register
