Shipowner Eidesvik Offshore has signed with fellow Norwegian company Yxney Maritime to start using the Maress Cloud-based system in support of data-driven decarbonisation of its vessel operations.
The initial agreement between the firms will see six of the fleet’s offshore vessels implement the system, which collects available data already produced by the vessels to analyse fuel consumption and emissions.
The application can be used to provide a foundation for decisions on the deployment of fuel saving initiatives, and enables evaluation of direct savings from programmes such as the installation of a battery system on a vessel.
“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,” said Eidesvik Chief Operating Officer, Jan Lodden.
“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.”
“We never lean back. We are thinking about the environment every time, every day”.
The Eidesvik fleet has already been actively testing technologies such as LNG, batteries and ammonia-driven fuel cell systems on its ships, and will now be able to gain additional insight into the resulting fuel consumption and emissions differences from its alternative options.
“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 CCO, Sindre Bornstein.
