Norwegian energy multinational Equinor has agreed a deal with Yxney Maritime to implement the Maress software application to assist in reducing fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from Equinor’s maritime operations.
Maress is a Cloud-based decision support system that creates a visual representation of energy usage from operations, using a variety of available data sources to calculate unique baselines per vessel. This allows for whole fleets to be managed and compared irrespective of the underlying technology provider on each vessel.
Equinor has signed an initial agreement for the system that will run for a duration of nine months on a select group of offshore vessels. The vessels are on long-term lease to Equinor from several different ship owners.
“Equinor is taking significant steps in reducing the carbon footprint from operations,” said Morten Sundt, Manager Marine Logistics and Emergency Response at Equinor.
“We have recently entered into a trial period with Yxney Maritime using their Maress toolkit for energy efficiency offshore. Maress will enable us to increase the utilisation of available data to reduce fuel consumption and climate gas emissions from our marine operations.”
“Maress allows us to have a closer dialogue with vessel owners and contractors on how we can perform offshore operations as efficiently and environmentally robust as possible.”
