Marine and offshore software company UniSea has agreed a deal to take part ownership in Yxney, a Norway-based specialist in energy efficiency applications founded in 2016.

“Yxney is experiencing rapid growth meeting the increasing demand for data-driven energy efficiency solutions in the offshore sector,” said Yxney CEO, Gjord Simen Sanna.

“UniSea is a highly respected player in the industry with a large client base. Yxney already uses UniSea data as the source for our calculations on many vessels. Closer collaboration between the two companies will allow us to provide even more efficient data flows, ensuring added value of the data for our customers.”

“We believe the strategic partnership between Yxney and UniSea will benefit all stakeholders. UniSea has built a position as the preferred supplier of ship management systems to the offshore and maritime segments. With the new partnership, Yxney and UniSea will combine our expertise to meet growing demand for data-driven energy efficiency solutions for the offshore industry, and to assist ship owners in creating real business value from their own data.”

Shipowners currently running UniSea can roll out the Yxney Maress energy efficiency management tool across their fleet with minor implementation work, the companies said, to assist them in improving their fuel efficiency and controlling vessel emissions.

“UniSea focuses on helping shipping companies simplify their work processes through digitalisation. Yxney has, in only a short time, succeeded in reaching the market with a solution using data available through UniSea software to reduce fuel consumption, costs, and environmental impact,” said UniSea CEO, Kurt Roald Vilhelmsen.

“We see exciting opportunities and added benefits for our customers through closer cooperation and integration of our solutions.”
