ZeroNorth has introduced its new open Vessel Reporting Platform, used to ensure that shipboard data is accurate and complete before reports are sent to shore and that it offers a true representation of vessel performance.
The web-based platform allows crews to input data for vessel reports and checks against more than 200 in-platform data validation points to ensure data is entered accurately and completely.
For example, the system will check that data has been entered in the right format or sits within plausible boundaries for normal operations of a given vessel, based on sailing conditions and vessel-specific parameters.
ZeroNorth says that the system will be open to the industry and is available as a standalone. For ZeroNorth customers, the new tool is fully integrated into the ZeroNorth platform.
“We know how time-intensive vessel reporting can be and understand how critical these reports are for owners and charterers alike. Vessel reports remain one of the best sources of information on ship and fuel performance, so it is only right that we try to find ways to improve and validate data being supplied from ship to shore,” said Jesper Bo Hansen, Chief Revenue Officer, ZeroNorth.
“Our new Vessel Reporting Platform sets out to solve these challenges, providing crew and shoreside staff with a clear, standardised, and easy way to improve reporting so they become more transparent and accountable to counterparties, and, ultimately, are better able to propel their decarbonisation efforts.”
