Technology group Wärtsilä and DNV’s Veracity have entered a partnership to create connectivity between Wärtsilä’s Fleet Optimisation Solution (FOS) and Veracity in order to help Anglo-Eastern make emissions compliance reporting more efficient.
ore than 500 vessels in Anglo-Eastern’s fleet have been fitted with Wärtsilä’s Fleet Optimisation Solution, a decision-support software platform for voyage planning, charter-party compliance, fuel efficiency, and fleet performance management. In addition, many of the Anglo-Eastern vessels use DNV as their appointed verifier to get accreditation for regulatory emissions reporting.
Today’s shipping industry is increasingly in need of emissions data that can be trusted and securely used across the value chain
… said Mikkel Skou, Managing Director of DNV Veracity
With the agreement between the companies, Anglo-Eastern’s Fleet Performance Centre aims to make the reporting processes towards their principal owners more streamlined. As Bjorn Hojgaard, CEO of Anglo-Eastern, highlighted, Wärtsilä has invested heavily in new digitally enabled strategies, and by partnering with them, Anglo-Eastern gains capabilities that assist the company and its shipowner clients to be the leaders in digitalisation, safety, and sustainability.
Ben Chng, Global Director of Sales for Wärtsilä Voyage Services pointed out that after the agreement there will be a data link from vessels reporting to the shore offices of FOS users.
Through the partnership with Veracity by DNV, we are able to help Anglo-Eastern and other major fleet managers and owners take a step closer to achieving end to end optimization by streamlining and improving the efficiency of their operations
