GreenSteam becomes KVH Watch IoT partner

Shortly after welcoming Kilo Marine into the fold, KVH has announced another addition to its KVH Watch Solution Partner programme, with vessel performance optimisation firm GreenSteam the latest to join the group.

Watch’s dedicated connectivity service will be used to support GreenSteam’s core services, facilitating the movement of data from vessels to shore-based analysts in real-time to allow users to better understand the factors leading to ship fuel wastage and develop more effective sustainability optimisation strategies.

“The lifeblood of GreenSteam is data volume, however, without the ability to move this data off a ship in a timely manner to enable rapid assessments and responses, its impact is lessened,” said Daniel Slater, Head of Business Development at GreenSteam.

“As vessels are becoming increasingly sophisticated data generators, this partnership with KVH Watch will enable us to benefit from significant advances in satellite communications by improving the flow of information. This in turn will support shipowners and charterers to make better operational decisions, saving time and money, while reducing emissions.”

KVH Watch is an IoT Connectivity as a Service system that provides machine-to-cloud satellite connectivity for remote monitoring of onboard equipment, supporting on-demand Remote Expert Interventions using video, voice, or text via KVH’s VSAT network.
