Texas-based vessel performance software company Tres Solutions is working with Danelec Marine, a Danish provider of ship-to-shore data products, to accelerate the use of high-resolution data and IoT in delivering insights to shipping companies.
The cooperation recognises Tres as a certified third-party application provider in which the company's TVA vessel analytics platform can seamlessly integrate with the Danelec Connect ship-to-shore data gathering and transmission offering.
Danelec collects and pre-processes data from onboard sensors before transferring them to a secure cloud-based database. Tres will use the real-time data in its TVA decision-support software and services, helping existing and future clients improve fuel efficiency, reduce emissions and improve operations.
"This collaboration brings together two leaders in maritime digitalisation," said Aaron Holton, CEO of Tres. "The industry has continued to evolve, with customers seeking connected platforms. With Danelec, we are collectively able to remove many of the barriers to widespread adoption of IoT by our customers and pave the way for further efficiency driven solutions for our clients."
As the industry increasingly uses IoT applications to harness the full potential of data, Tres and Danelec say they are committed to providing shipping companies with tools that can improve confidence in decision-making and increase fuel and environmental efficiency.
"We are pleased to welcome Tres into our ever-expanding integration ecosystem," said Casper Jensen, COO of Danelec Marine, "The industry is quickly changing, and many more ships will be IoT enabled in the coming years. We believe our collaboration with Tres will help lead the transformation of the industry in a smart and efficient way."
Tres is a maritime software and analytics company, providing digital vessel performance products that help users improve data quality, save money, reduce emissions and improve operations. TVA is deployed on nearly 300 vessels worldwide.
Headquartered in Denmark, Danelec is a supplier of voyage data recorders (VDRs), ship-to-shore data communication systems, and electronic chart display and information systems. More than 6000 vessels today are equipped with a VDR designed and manufactured by Danelec Marine. The company has service facilities with factory-trained personnel in more than 50 countries and certified service centres at strategic locations worldwide.
