International fuel testing and inspection company VPS on Friday (28 May) said it has acquired digital services company Yxney Maritime, in an effort to support the marine industry’s efforts to drive greater sustainability in shipping while expanding on its growing digital services offering.
Norwegian-based Yxney Maritime provides data-driven solutions to assist ship owners and energy companies in decarbonising maritime operations.
It offers the advanced analytical software, Maress, which provides vessel owners and operators the insight for decarbonising maritime operations.
Maress combines available data from vessels with other relevant data sets to create insight, transparency and network collaboration for ship owners, energy companies and other stakeholders.
In 2020 Maress users achieved combined savings in excess of 60,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
“With the increased focus on sustainability, this acquisition of Yxney will help our maritime customers to better understand the impact that every operational activity has on GHG emissions, enabling improved efficiencies and delivery of emissions reductions,” said Malcolm Cooper, CEO, VPS.
Current and future industry climate targets are creating a real challenge for many ship operators.
By incorporating Yxney’s advanced data technologies to the VPS portfolio, immediate business and environmental value can be offered to every customer, and targets can be met faster.
“Together, and with complementary services, we are creating genuine sustainable transformation through data-driven change,” notes Simen Sanna Gjord, CEO, Yxney Maritime.
The shared vision of VPS and Yxney – of creating a more sustainable world – will drive real, global change within the maritime sector; and help every VPS customer significantly reduce their emissions and operational costs.
