Norwegian shipowner Eidesvik has signed with Yxney Maritime to start using the Maress cloud-based system for data-driven decarbonisation of vessel operations. The initial agreement is for six of the fleet´s advanced offshore vessels.
The Eidesvik fleet has actively been used to test technologies such as LNG, batteries, as well as the recent announcement to install an ammonia-driven fuel cell system on one of the vessels. Maress – cloud-based system uses available data produced by the vessels to create insight and transparency about the fuel consumption and emissions from operations.
Maress enables the user to closely follow the efficiency development of single vessels and a whole fleet. In addition to creating a solid foundation for deciding what fuel saving initiatives to deploy, the system enables evaluation of direct savings from initiatives such as the installation of a battery system on a vessel.
“For us, innovation is mainly about the environment”, said Eidesvik chief operating officer Mr Jan Lodden. “With Maress we will strengthen our insight and ability to communicate with our stakeholders around our footprint and the energy saving initiatives we´re doing. Having the right digital solutions is a new way to stay ahead of the competition in a challenging market. Maress will help us do exactly that”, said Lodden.
“We are excited to add Eidesvik to the list of shipowners using Maress. They´re known for constantly pushing the boundaries for more carbon efficient operations, and there is very good alignment between our two companies,” said Yxney chief commercial officer Sindre Bornstein.
The two companies are intent on jointly leveraging the combination of industry experience and data analytics to find new ways to keep reducing emissions from operations.
