Bureau Veritas to partner with Ascenz

Bureau Veritas and Singapore based Ascenz have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together in providing ship performance and monitoring solutions to shipowners world-wide.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The agreement will enable Bureau Veritas to offer Shipulse, Ascenz’s real time ship performance and monitoring system which captures shipboard data to be used in optimising vessel operations. The data captured covers fuel consumption, bunkering activity, engine, hull and propeller performance.

Bureau Veritas will offer the software alongside its own services and analysis tools based on ship modelling capabilities, data analysis across fleets, and will also integrate Shipulse with its own weather routing and trim optimisation software where required.

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

“We are excited that through this co-operation agreement we will be able to enhance our offering and leverage BV’s expertise in vessel performance.”

Shipulse also includes a CarbonComply module to support EU MRV (monitoring, reporting and verification) requirements, with Bureau Veritas already approved as an EU MRV Recognised Organisation.

CarbonComply enables automated monitoring and reporting of ship CO2 emissions, and can register voyages automatically without the need for manual calculations to breakdown fuel consumption or emissions on a per voyage basis.

The system is able to detect and classify different voyage stages such as sea passages, manoeuvring, or drifting, and can identify when a ship is either moored or at anchor.{/mprestriction}
