Bureau Veritas and Singapore-based Ascenz have signed a memorandum to provide ship performance and monitoring solutions to shipowners world-wide. Under the agreement, Bureau Veritas will offer Shipulse, Ascenz’s solution for real time ship performance and monitoring.
Shipulse captures critical shipboard data to provide insights for better decision making, fuel savings and optimized vessel performance. The data captured covers fuel consumption, bunkering activity, engine, hull and propeller performance.
Bureau Veritas will market Shipulse across its network to offer complementary services and analysis tools based on ship modelling capabilities, data analysis across fleets, and the ability to integrate BV software – such as weather routing and trim optimization – with Shipulse.
Tihomir Kezic, Bureau Veritas’ Regulatory Services Director, said: ‘By joining forces with Ascenz we are able to provide solutions to shipowners that connect compliance with performance management to help ensure efficiency and environmental performance as well as safe operations.’
In addition, Ascenz’s Shipulse solution incorporates monitoring and reporting requirements for MRV compliance.
