Helm Operations and Reygar partner on maritime decarbonisation R&D project

Canadian maritime software firm Helm Operations is partnering with Reygar in the UK on a collaborative maritime decarbonisation research and development initiative, jointly funded via Innovate UK’s 2022 ‘Canada-UK Zero Value Chains – Transportation’ call and the National Research Council of Canada.

The goal is to investigate how technology can help to lower carbon emissions and reduce operating costs for tug and workboat fleet operators, with the project set to integrate Reygar’s BareFLEET vessel performance monitoring technology with Helm CONNECT’s fleet management modules, including an on-vessel link between Reygar’s telematics unit and the Helm CONNECT user interface.

The project builds on an existing relationship between Reygar and Helm, who partnered in 2022 to support the roll out of BareFLEET to logistics provider Crowley.

“Our partnership with Reygar has been incredibly positive from the start and we’re thrilled to be building on the foundation that has already proven to be successful for many of our customers,” said Nolan Barclay, Helm Operations CEO.

“The use of IoT sensor readings and automation to enhance technical asset management is already showing value in our market and we’re excited that this new integration between BareFLEET and Helm CONNECT will address the growing need for emission reductions and ESG reporting.”

The initial scope of the joint project work is expected to be completed by May 2024.
