Veson cloud solution upgraded for IMO 2020

Veson Nautical has announced that new features are being added to its a cloud solution for fleet management, Veslink IMOS Platform, to help users navigate the IMO’s 2020 Sulphur regulation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The IMO 2020 Sulphur cap is designed to reduce marine sector emissions in international waters by 80 per cent from January 1, 2020. More fuel grades that are compliant with the regulation are entering the market and there is increased pressure on the shipping industry to prepare their vessels for change, source compliant and compatible fuel, track fuel consumption, understand scrubber allowance regulations, and gain visibility into bunker inventory, costs, and scrubber utilisation.

Veson’s IMO 2020 solution has been designed with significant input from Veson’s client base and will build upon existing Emission Control Area (ECA) Zone consumption and tracking functionality, which has been a core part of the Veslink IMOS Platform since 2010.

“As 2020 draws ever closer, we understand that compliance with the new regulations is an issue of increasing urgency for nearly every organisation in the market,” said John Veson, CEO of Veson Nautical. “The Veslink IMOS Platform is perfectly suited to address the data visibility and voyage planning components of the regulation, and we are excited to roll out new functionality that will provide such critical value to our user base.”

“We are pleased with the straightforward yet comprehensive nature of the solution we are developing,” stated Per Ostman, Veson Nautical’s director of product. “We started engaging with clients as far back as last year, and have built consensus in the community through surveys, site visits, and roundtable sessions, including at our ONCOURSE user conference. There’s a lot of uncertainty in the market around grade availability, zone restrictions, and pricing – our goal is to offer a standardised approach that provides stability to our clients and allows for future flexibility.”

Veson’s IMO 2020 solution is scheduled for release by the end of August 2019.

Veson is holding a webinar to provide additional context around the regulation on Thursday, September 12, 2019. Register for the webinar here. {/mprestriction}
