Høglund, a global marine automation and system integration expert, has announced that it has signed an agreement with Yxney Maritime to launch an integrated vessel performance monitoring solution.
The plug-and-play system will give ship owners and managers access to real-time fuel consumption data and analytics, allowing for better decision making and improved ship and fleet fuel efficiencies.
Under the agreement, Høglund Marine Automation’s Ship Performance Monitor (SPM), which collects and stores accurate fuel consumption data for an individual vessel or entire fleet, will be seamlessly integrated with Yxney’s cloud-based database MarESS, allowing the data sets to be processed and presented to the customer on a user-friendly interface. Ship owners, managers and crew can then use these data insights to find more efficient ways of operating and reducing fuel consumption.
The SPM-MarESS solution has proven extremely popular with shipping companies, with a number of orders already in place. Siem Offshore has already requested the system to be installed on a number of the vessels in its fleet, while Havila Shipping has shown its long-term commitment to the initiative by signing a five-year contract.
