BV, Ascenz join hands to offer ship performance and monitoring solutions

BV, Ascenz join hands to offer ship performance and monitoring solutions
Classification society Bureau Veritas (BV) and Singapore’s technology firm Ascenz have penned an agreement to provide ship performance and monitoring solutions to global shipowners, tapping on Ascenz’s real-time ship performance and monitoring solution named Shipulse.

The Shipulse solution 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.

BV 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.

Chia Yoong Hui, ceo of Ascenz, said: “The key value of Shipulse is to bring critical performance information as accurately and seamlessly as possible to shipowners.”

Tihomir Kezic, regulatory services director at BV, 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 to providing ship performance benefits, the Shipulse solution also incorporates a ‘CarbonComply’ module that monitors and reports requirements for MRV (monitoring, reporting and verification) compliance.

As an EU MRV recognized organization, BV recognizes Ascenz’s CarbonComply module.

The CarbonComply feature enables automated monitoring and reporting of ship carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions under EU-MRV regulation requirements.

The system is also able to detect and classify different voyage stages such as sea passages, maneuvering, drifting and to identify when a ship is either moored or at anchor. This then allows for greater granularity from profiling emissions associated with a sea passage versus that from time spent when anchored.
