Singaporean maritime start-up Chord X has agreed a new trial installation of its shipboard analytics system on board the Aurora Tankers vessel Maritime Tranquility, in association with IMC Industrial Group and IMC Ventures.
The chemical and oil carrier, built in 2020, will use the ecoMax and optiMax applications for remote monitoring of greenhouse gases, such as CO₂ and Sox, and to generate predictive insights into vessel machinery efficiencies.
“Aurora Tankers is actively partnering with ecosystem players and marine tech companies like Chord X to explore and trial innovative and greener solutions on our ships,” explained Dexter Say, Managing Director, Aurora Tankers, IMC Shipping.
“We’re committed to operate vessels of the future that will support our sustainability goals and deliver greater value to our customers as we work towards a blue economy.”
Jon Loken, CEO of Chord X, also commented: “Our customers have access to insights relating to their assets which will help them lower operating expenses and enhance reliability, at the same time. Our in-house experts, including marine main engine specialists, help our customers resolve complex issues that usually require the assistance of maker’s service engineers.”
