Our up to-date loading program will enhance the vessel’s capability while is fully approved by all IACS Class Societies by:

·         Maximize the allowable steel coils per cargo hold over and above the originally designed steel loading per cargo hold

·         Maximize the allowable combination of size of steel coils per row and tier per cargo hold that will also facilitate actual nonhomogeneous size of steel coils in the cargo holds

·         Maximise the steel products (steel plates, steel solid sections and pipes, slabs etc) per cargo hold that is not included in the operations manuals with:

Oil Record Book

Which is the correct entry for Oil Record Book, when Fuel Oil is transferred from FO Drain Tank to FO Settling Tank?

In case IOPPC states "Other Piping Arrangement" under the paragraph 3.2.3 "Other acceptable means, state which:...", C/E can then record such operation using the code C.12.2.

Immediate benefits of this software are the following:

  • Automatic corrections for Trim/Heel/Density/Temperature.
  • Calculation of the density of blended bunkers.
  • Automatic synchronization of data between vessel and office.
  • Categorization / Definition of the vessels tanks categories as HSFO, LSFO, ULSFO, MDO etc.
  • Corrected Weight in Air or in Vacuum.
  • Density of the Bunkers can be corrected retrospectively when Samples Analysis is available.
  • Print-out tailored to your good Company’s needs
  • Clarity &Transparency based on official shipyard’s documentation (Sounding/Calibration Tables) endorsed by SMM (UK) Ltd. as 3rd party.
  • Support for Customizable setting of the alarm contents levels for each F.O./D.O. tank, enabling the User to adjust such accordingly depending on your good Company’s Policy and Conditions.
  • Automatic Calculation of the recommended Bunkers Quantities basis on the abovementioned alarm tanks level for estimating required HFO/MDO/MGO uplifts for the next bunkering call. 
  • Insertion of Upper Sulphur Content Limits (3.5% HSFO, 0.5%, 0.1% ULSFO/LSMGO).
  • Certain colourization of program cells depending on sulphur content.
  • Inspection Title as Drop-Down Menu.(on Arrival, upon Departure, After Bunkering, Before Bunkering, Free text)

Vessel Air Draft & Floating Position External Module

Immediate Benefits & Features of this software:

  • With the “Vessel Floating Position” module in use, you can easily calculate and provide all info requested by the Charterers/Port agents/Terminals, without requiring retrieving the needed figures from loading manuals and vessels' Plans.
  • The most critical information of your vessel's floating position (ie. During loading/unloading operations) are fully accessible by anyone.
  • The risk of losing important ship documentation during handling of hard copies is minimized.
  • Expenses and delays for retrieving appropriate vessels’ plans or manuals can be avoided.
  • Automatic synchronization of data between vessels and office (fleet-based).
  • Office fleet-based version.

Cooking Oil Processing - Possible Record in eORB

  • Preferable method is disposal of Cooking Oil ashore.
  • Never dispose Cooking Oil in the bilge system putting it through the Oil Water Separator (OWS), OWS cannot treat used cooking oil. 
  • Cooking Oil NOT to be transferred to sludge tanks as it is not a MARPOL I waste (Oil). Cooking Oil is a MARPOL V waste (Garbage) and may be incinerated when combined with waste/oily rags or other inflammable materials (Category F garbage).

We, genially, invite you to join our Viber Community staying tuned with the latest technology/software developments and abreast with regulatory compliance & loading/unloading operations efficiency. 


It is important once bunkers samples analysis results are available to prompt C/Es to alter the Low Calorific Value (LCV) on M/E's settings assuring better combustion efficiency, in case of fuel changeover.

The Low Calorific Value is a measure of the heat energy available.

The specific fuel consumption is typically stated in terms of g/kWh, based upon a standard fuel with a lower calorific value (LCV) of 42.7 MJ/kg.


How do we address more effectively to the requirement of Vetting Inspectors for the worst case scenario against Damage Stability criteria
on the basis of GM parameter as per VIQ7 ?

MULTILOAD Loading Program now provides more user-friendly support for satisfying the requirement of Vetting Inspectors with regard to the worst case scenario against Damage Stability criteria on the basis of GM parameter as per VIQ7.
