BV, Ascenz Join Forces in Ship Performance, Monitoring
Classification society Bureau Veritas and Singapore-based Ascenz have signed an agreement to provide ship performance and monitoring solutions to shipowners.
As informed, the agreement will enable Bureau Veritas to 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, according to Bureau Veritas.
Bureau Veritas plans to market Shipulse across its network to offer complementary services and analysis tools based on ship modeling capabilities, data analysis across fleets, and the ability to integrate BV software with Shipulse.
“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,” Tihomir Kezic, Bureau Veritas’ Regulatory Services Director, said.
Shipulse’s CarbonComply module supports MRV monitoring and reporting requirements. The system enables automated monitoring and reporting of ship CO2 emissions under EU-MRV regulation requirements.
