France-based Opsealog has secured a contract to apply its performance management solution Marinsights to ADNOC Logistics & Services’ offshore fleet.
Following a proof-of-concept trial with 11 vessels, ADNOC Logistics & Services, the maritime arm of ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company), has signed a multi-year contract with Opsealog to deploy its Marinsights service in a fleet of 70 offshore supply vessels in its Middle East operations. This will include platform supply vessels (PSV), anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) and fast support intervention vessels (FSIV).
The Marinsights performance management tool monitors and optimises marine offshore operations, bringing together data integration and visualisation with Opsealog’s consultancy support, which the company claims delivers fuel, emissions and cost savings, and improved fleet utilisation.
During the five-month trial period with Opsealog starting in May 2020, ADNOC Logistics & Services achieved a 12% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, representing 572 cubic metres of fuel and 1,519 carbon dioxide equivalent tonnes (TEQ CO2).
Commenting, Arnaud Dianoux, Managing Director of Opsealog, said: ‘Our proof-of-concept trial with ADNOC Logistics & Services confirmed the verifiable difference that good data management can achieve. Our technology enables the offshore sector to leverage new efficiencies from digital solutions, including reduced fuel consumption and better control of other operational costs, all of which helps to protect their margins.’
Dianoux added: ‘At a time when the defining challenge facing the energy and maritime sectors is decarbonisation, Opsealog’s data insights are also helping clients to improve their environmental performance and significantly reduce their carbon footprint. Our team’s extensive vessel design knowledge will enable us to benchmark operational behaviours, new technologies, and become the go-to contact for a range of critical issues, including propulsion transition, energy efficiency projects, and fleet utilisation, as well as supporting during the tender process.’
