UAB-Online, developer of an optimisation platform for liquid bulk operations, has announced that it has secured new capital via a strategic investment from First Dutch, in partnership with Platform Zero.
The company says that the funds will help to accelerate expansion throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and North America, as it looks to continue improving its product and scaling the organisation.
First Dutch, which will be investing in UAB-Online through its early-stage investment arm First Dutch Ventures, focuses on supporting new technologies and scaling existing sustainable innovations, specifically looking at the energy transition within the maritime sector. Platform Zero is committed to addressing climate challenges through scaling of technology firms, particularly within shipping.
“We are excited to welcome First Dutch and Platform Zero as strategic partners in our journey. Their financial support, expertise, and extensive networks will play a pivotal role in our mission to drive digitalisation and sustainability in the maritime industry,” said UAB-Online’s CEO Hans Bobeldijk.
“As we grow, we can build an ecosystem that helps our existing and future customers streamline their operations, which will contribute to achieving the maritime industry’s decarbonisation goals.”
“What really excites us is the opportunity to work with a maritime energy leader like First Dutch, which opens a wider network of expertise to us as we innovate and improve. Likewise, we are thrilled to work alongside Platform Zero, with whom we share a dedication to addressing climate change.”
