Marseille, France – 11th of June 2024 – 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 prominent French company specializing in cable laying and repair operations.

This extension signifies a deepening of the collaboration between the two companies, which began in May 2023, and highlights their commitment to advancing fleet digitalization 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 to extend Opsealog’s innovative solutions to additional vessels in the fleet. As of April 2024, the contract has been further extended to encompass three more Orange Marine vessels.

Opsealog’s tools, Marinsights, and Streamlog, are now being deployed on four of Orange Marine’s vessels, enhancing the accuracy and efficiency of data collection and reporting processes. This digital transformation replaces the previous manual and spreadsheet-based reporting methods, significantly streamlining Orange Marine’s operations.

The key achievements of the partnership to date include the digitalization 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 at Orange Marine said: “Our collaboration with Opsealog has been instrumental in modernizing 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 at Opsealog, added: “We are pleased to be continuing our partnership with Orange Marine. Their commitment to digitalizing 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”.

The collaboration has also supported the development of new features tailored to Orange Marine’s needs, such as marine mammal monitoring and reporting. In 2017, France implemented stringent laws to monitor and mitigate marine mammal disturbance from shipping vessels. These regulations require French-flagged vessels over 24 meters and sailing in Pélagos and Agoa regions to implement a position-sharing system to prevent collisions with cetaceans. Opsealog has developed a TimeSheet module for the Streamlog solution, enabling the efficient and consistent reporting of any observations and avoidance of marine mammals.

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.

Orange Marine vessels operate under various Cable Maintenance agreements, covering extensive regions from the Atlantic and Northern Europe to the Mediterranean, Black Sea, Red Sea, and southern Atlantic and Indian Oceans. The current contract with Opsealog also focuses on laying vessels, including one operating in the Pacific Ocean. Opsealog and Orange Marine’s renewed contract reflects a mutual dedication to leveraging digital solutions for operational excellence and environmental compliance. This partnership not only enhances data accuracy and reporting efficiency but also sets the stage for future innovations in maritime operations.
