Fuel testing firm acquires digital services company Yxney Maritime

Marine fuel testing company VPS has acquired Yxney Maritime, specialists in data-driven decarbonisation.

This acquisition is part of VPS’s strategy to support the marine industry’s efforts to decarbonise and operate more sustainably. It also expands VPS’s growing digital services offering.

Yxney’s advanced analytical software, Maress, provides vessel owners and operators the insight needed to decarbonise maritime operations and help create a more sustainable future.

By joining forces, VPS and Yxney can now serve a bigger market and deliver even greater carbon reductions to every customer.

“With the increased focus on sustainability, this acquisition of Yxney will help our maritime customers to better understand the impact that every
operational activity has on GHG emissions, enabling improved efficiencies and delivery of emissions reductions,” said Malcolm Cooper, CEO, VPS.

Current and future industry climate targets are creating a real challenge for many ship operators. By incorporating Yxney’s advanced data technologies to the VPS portfolio, immediate business and environmental value can be offered to every customer, and targets can be met faster.
