Closer collaboration between the two companies, which already cooperate in data-driven energy efficiency initiatives, is aimed at providing extra value from data for customers, the companies said.
Kurt Roald Vilhelmsen, Unisea CEO, commented: "UniSea focuses on helping shipping companies simplify their work processes through digitalisation. Yxney has in only a short time succeeded in reaching the market with a solution using data available through UniSea software to reduce fuel consumption, costs and environmental impact."
The companies noted that fuel efficiency and emissions are increasingly important in the maritime sector, with climate-robust business models becoming significant differentiators for owners and operators competing for contracts in the offshore charter markets.
