The vessel performance optimisation company’s acquisition of the assets of Greece-based maritime software specialist Enerforce will extend its product offering to include Liberty, a noon reporting validation system.
The Liberty platform acts as a central repository for data derived from noon reports and uses an advanced validation process to remove inaccurate data received from vessels.
By cleaning up the data through a validation process, Liberty monitors inputs with in-built logic to warn onboard users of any anomalies at the time of data entry. According to a statement from GreenSteam, Liberty provides ship owners with a more accurate overview of vessel performance compared with traditional noon reporting and, alongside improved vessel management, can be used to demonstrate regulatory compliance against mandatory reporting including EU MRV, IMO DCS, TMSA3 element 10 and the upcoming Carbon Intensity Indicator. The software also removes the need to install high frequency data sensors.
Simon Whitford, CEO of GreenSteam, commented: ‘Quality data is essential to building and extracting the full value from GreenSteam’s artificial intelligence and machine learning models. By drawing data from validated noon reports our customers will be able to more effectively generate cost-savings and identify where they need to take action to ensure that the latest emissions regulations are being met.’
GreenSteam is also acquiring Enerforce’s office in Piraeus. Former Managing Director of Enerforce, Dimitrios Tagkalis, is taking up the position of General Manager Greece, GreenSteam.
Last November GreenSteam launched GreenSteam Capture, a mobile app designed to automatically log and upload fuel consumption data and reduce errors in fuel consumption reporting.
The GreenSteam Capture app uses optical character recognition technology to automatically record and time stamp flow meter readings. When combined with bunker delivery information, GreenSteam claims the app can accurately calculate hourly fuel consumption data for any vessel.
