Digitalizing your isgott and ship-shore processes

Introducing version 6 of the International Safety Guide for Tankers and Terminals.

Digitalize the ISGOTT 6 processes

Digitalizing all the handshakes between various parties involved, such as terminals, vessels, agencies, shipping companies, and the authorities, is an important strategic goal for companies, and the introduction of version 6 of the International Safety Guide for Tankers and terminals (ISGOTT 6) provides a well-grounded reason to accelerate this.

How it works

Pre-arrival checks

The planner digitally invites a ship, and the pre-arrival checks for the terminal and the other important information are automatically sent along. View all the information digitally and enter the pre-arrival checklist for the ship. The planner has real-time insight into when all pre-arrival checks are ready and when the ship arrives, the planner can change the status to Arrived @ terminal

Ship/Shore Safety Checklist

The digital checklist automatically shows the relevant parts based on the product to be transferred and has designated areas if crude oil washing is planned or checks before tank cleaning or gas freeing are applicable. Both the tanker and terminal will receive a digital copy of the pre-arrival checks and the SSSCL to be displayed at all the relevant control stations. 

Summary of repetitive checks

The tanker and terminal receive a reminder at an agreed time interval to perform the repetitive checks. The information entered can be viewed by all parties involved all the time. This, for example, makes it very easy to perform shift handovers since all relevant information is digitally recorded and available.
