KOGNIFAI ADDS ANOTHER DECARBONISATION SOLUTION

KOGNIFAI ADDS ANOTHER DECARBONISATION SOLUTION

Monday, March 8, 2021 

Kongsberg Digital and energy efficiency specialist Yxney have teamed up to offer shipowners and operators a tool for fleet energy management, with Yxney's Maress application now available for all Vessel Insight users on the Kognifai Marketplace.

Yxney’s Maress application is a digital management solution for decarbonising maritime operations, providing vessel owners and operators with insight needed to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Yxney says it helped customers achieve combined savings of more than 60,000 tonnes of CO2 in 2020. Maress facilitates transparency and a new way of collaborating towards industry emission targets by establishing a baseline for each vessel in a fleet, based on historic performance for every activity on board. This baseline, teamed with real-time data from the operations of each vessel and the entire fleet, enables Maress to simplify analysing the effect of energy saving initiatives.

As of January 2021, about 300 vessels were using Maress within the offshore and shipping segments. Yxney has experienced rapid growth over the past few years, demonstrated by an approximately 100 percent increase in its customer base from 2019 to 2020. This rapid growth suggests an increasing demand for data-driven solutions that reduce fuel consumption, costs, and environmental impact for shipowners and energy companies.

“We are very excited to partner up with Yxney,” said Eirik Næsje, SVP Vessel Insight, Kongsberg Digital. “The concept of Yxney brilliantly challenges the dichotomy between reducing environmental footprint and cutting costs, and offers a service that’s been highly called for in the industry. We can now offer our subscribers a powerful tool to improve their understanding of vessel energy consumption and to capitalise on operational data. With the driving forces towards meeting IMO2030, IMO2050 and continuously stricter regulations, it is a much-needed application that will increase the business value of Vessel Insight for its users.”

The partnership will add value to all users of Vessel Insight, Kongsberg’s SaaS-based vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure solution.

“We see Kongsberg as a leader in maritime technology and navigational systems. Vessel Insight and Kognifai enable Kongsberg systems installed on thousands of vessels worldwide to send data to the cloud. The partnership between Kongsberg Digital and Yxney enables Maress to utilise the data from Kongsberg systems onboard the vessels to deliver visualisations and transparency on data related to sustainability. With this partnership KONGSBERG, Yxney and their customers can set sail to drive change in the maritime industry for a sustainable future,” said Yxney CEO, Gjord Simen Sanna.
