K-Log electronic logbooks

Purpose of electronic logbooks

K-Log electronic logbooks are an electronic alternative to record key navigation, engine watch, port calls and other operational activities onboard vessels of all sizes. Our logbooks meet the specific reporting requirements of IMO, SOLAS and flag states. Ship's officers are given an easy way to log all activities onboard according to the requirements of the different recipients of the information. Manually inserted information is automatically combined with data recorded from the vessel's instruments such as time and position.

Available electronic logbooks

Our K-Log electronic logbooks are available for all vessel types. Currently the following electronic logbooks are available:

  • Deck Logbook – Records navigational events related to the voyage and operations onboard
  • Dynamic Positioning Logbook – Manual recording of operations related to DP operations
  • Engine Logbook – Records engine events related to the engine and machinery operation
  • Oil Record Book Part I – Records events related to oil and dirty water as required by IMO's MARPOL convention
  • Operational Log – Records events related to vessel operation, i.e. performance, cargo handling and maritime operations. The Operational Log will typically need some customisation to owner’s requirement and trade.
  • Radio Logbook – Records events relevant to radio traffic as required by IMO and the flag states
  • Garbage Logbook – Records events relevant to disposal and incineration of garbage.
