To comply with the IMO PSPC regulations, shipyards must record, for each area under consideration, at both the block and the erection stages:
With the significant levels of record keeping required to comply to the IMO PSPC regulations, there is a need to automate inspection data management, in order to maximise efficiency.
ElcoShip links all the requirements of the IMO PSPC Coating Technical File in one easy to use software solution. ElcoShip provides real time traceable information on the status of all coating inspections throughout the ship build.
ElcoShip can be used to monitor your coating inspection across any structure in the ship, including the ballast tanks.
ElcoShip automatically generates the IMO PSPC compliant Coating Technical File at the click of a button.
ElcoShip is broken down into 8 Sections: click on any section title to see an interactive demonstration of the software.
ElcoShip also provides the inspector with an IMO CTF validation tool - which automatically checks that all data is in place, all inspections, together with all necessary reworks, have been actioned, prior to generating the CTF either as a printed document or as a .pdf electronic file.
Although inspection equipment exists to measure all the information required by IMO - not all inspection tasks required by IMO are the same.
Some tasks are visual, others manual, whilst some provide a digital result. Through the use of PDA's running ElcoShip Mobile, users can:
ElcoShip - a 3 year collaboration
ElcoShip is a result of a joint venture between and and is based upon a three year research and development programme, ecodock, which included industry members from shipbuilding, ship repair and classification societies, bought together to find a simple and practical solution to the challenge posed and included many of the leading paint suppliers in its user group.
