Kuwait’s tanker operator KOTC has selected ChartCo for back-of-bridge management software and navigational, regulatory and compliance data services for its entire fleet of 33 vessels, with scope to expand as the fleet grows.

As part of the new collaboration, KOTC will be upgrading its existing navigation and compliance management system to ChartCo’s new fully integrated platform, OneOcean. This provides mariners with the most rapid and efficient solution for meeting their crucial navigation, environmental, regulatory, safety and quality compliance management needs, ring-fenced with increased cyber resilience.

Commenting on the tender award, KOTC’s Capt. Bader Nasrallah, Superintendent of Fleet Marine Operation Division, said: “KOTC is known for being an early adopter of ideas and developments in the industry and we like to work with expert and innovator companies. In this key area, we find ChartCo’s offering to be not only the most comprehensive, their capability is also well-matched to our needs. We are also impressed with their commitment to making the installation and adoption process a positive one.”
