The definitive solution to your IMO PSPC inspection requirements

The Performance Standard for Protective Coatings (PSPC) in dedicated Seawater ballast tanks came into effect as part of common structural rules in January 2008. From July 2008 it came into force as part of SOLAS, making Ballast Tank Coating Inspection as important as a ship's lifeboat.

The IMO PSPC raises considerable challenges to the industry as the regulation identifies the need for prescriptive processes for:

  • surface preparation
  • for coating
  • inspection regime
  • data collection & reporting
  • auditing & assessment

Generating significantly increased levels of data recording and analysis.

ElcoShip is a paperless solution for all your marine coating inspection requirements (visual, manual and electronic) in one easy to use software package which:

  • minimises report writing
  • maximises on site inspection time
  • delivers significant cost savings

ElcoShip provides traceable real time information on the status of all coating inspections throughout the ship build automatically generating the IMO PSPC compliant Coating Technical File at the click of a button.
