SPICA E-Reader

SPICA E-Reader provides a full digital technical library for maritime use. It provides all of the books needed on board in an easy-to-use digital format.

It eliminates the associated costs and administration of maintaining a paper library, as all of the data is on the vessel at all times. Additionally, the entire library is updated easily with just a single click of a button. You don’t even need to be online to update the digital library.

In the event of a vessel inspection, SPICA E-Reader makes it easy – and ensures compliance – by having all mandatory publications on board.
