Opsealog, a provider of data integration and analysis services for the maritime and offshore industry, has confirmed the renewal and expansion of its service contract with Orange Marine, a French company specialising in cable laying and repair operations.

The extension signifies a deepening of the collaboration between the two companies, which began in May 2023, and highlights their commitment to advancing fleet digitalisation and operational efficiency across Orange Marine’s fleet.

The partnership commenced with a three-month trial on one of Orange Marine’s cable-laying vessels, Pierre de Fermat. Following this successful trial, the contract was renewed in September 2023 with the aim of extending Opsealog’s innovative solutions to additional vessels in the fleet. The contract has now been further extended to encompass three more Orange Marine vessels.

Opsealog’s tools, Marinsights and Streamlog, are now being deployed on four Orange Marine vessels, enhancing the accuracy and efficiency of data collection and reporting processes. This digital transformation replaces the previously manual and spreadsheet-based reporting methods, significantly streamlining Orange Marine’s operations. The key achievements of the partnership to date include the digitalisation of the fleet through the implementation of monthly reports detailing vessel operational profiles, automated tracking and reporting of CO2 and SOx emissions to comply with upcoming environmental regulations, and precise documentation of vessel activity, including hours spent in transit, operations, and stand-by in port.

Hugo Plantet, Quality, Safety, Environment Director, Orange Marine, said: “Our collaboration with Opsealog has been instrumental in modernising our reporting processes and preparing us for future environmental regulations. The tailored solutions and innovative features developed through this partnership have significantly enhanced our operational monitoring, with the aim of managing our environmental footprint.”

Oriane Thevenot, Account Manager, Opsealog, added: “We are pleased to be continuing our partnership with Orange Marine. Their commitment to digitalising their fleet and improving operational efficiency aligns perfectly with our mission to deliver cutting-edge maritime solutions. We look forward to supporting Orange Marine as they navigate the evolving regulatory landscape and achieve their sustainability goals.”

While the primary goal of the collaboration is fleet digitalization, Opsealog’s certified Garbage Record Book and Oil Record Book are also in use, helping Orange Marine meet the stringent reporting requirements of the Orange Group.
