100 Ships Have Installed TELSCOPE Electronic Record Books

The TELSCOPE Electronic Record Books’ deployment aboard the MV Island Contender is a cause for celebration, marking a pivotal achievement as the 100th vessel to integrate our solution. We take immense pride in being the chosen partner of Island Offshore for digitalizing their maritime operations.

A Century of Vessels Equipped and Counting
The MV Island Contender, an Island Offshore Platform Supply Vessel, is the 18th ship within the Island Offshore fleet to be outfitted with TELSCOPE. This milestone nearly completes a successful rollout across the fleet, with an implementation pace of 1-2 ships monthly. This includes full installation, commissioning, and crew training over roughly a year.

Enthusiastic user feedback and plans to introduce TELSCOPE on an additional 100 vessels across diverse maritime sectors highlight the industry’s accelerated shift towards digital solutions. This transition towards digital record-keeping is acknowledged for reducing administrative workloads and improving record accuracy.

TELSCOPE’s Real-World Benefits for Island Offshore
Andre Almestad, Fleet Manager for AHTS at Island Offshore and overseer of TELSCOPE’s fleet-wide implementation, notes a significant advantage: the reduction of administrative and repetitive record-keeping tasks. This improvement not only optimizes onboard operations but also allows the crew to concentrate on their primary duties, thereby boosting safety and efficiency.

Almestad underlines TELSCOPE’s positive impact on daily operations, offering substantial benefits that enhance operational efficiency and compliance.

With the upcoming ship-to-shore module, set for completion in the second quarter of 2024, TELSCOPE will enable flawless communication between ship and shore teams, granting office staff complete access to onboard records. Additionally, the improved checklist feature will simplify the distribution and onboard implementation of checklists managed by the shore-based team. Almestad expresses eagerness to commence using these new features, which will also focus on optimizing the audit process and managing compliance documentation.
