28 February 2017 – Ascenz Solutions Pte Ltd (Ascenz) has announced the introduction of a voyage management module for its Shipulse solutions suite in response to the European Union's (EU's) Monitoring, Reporting, Veriﬁcation (MRV) regulation.
Ascenz says Shipulse “encompasses features that equips companies with relevant data required for the submission of monitoring plans and emission reports.”
As Ship & Bunker has reported, the MRV regulation will require shipping companies to submit ship-speciﬁc monitoring plans to veriﬁers for approval by the end of the August 2017, with per-voyage monitoring set to start on January 1, 2018.
“Shipulse voyage management solution addresses challenges faced by owners and operators by allowing greater visibility and control over their vessel operations,” explains Ascenz.
“Moving towards an increasingly automated system, work processes are streamlined, enabling improved responsiveness, operational performances, and more eﬃcient ﬂeet utilisation.”
The company further explains that its offering automatically reﬂects all voyages within Emission Control Areas (ECAs), enabling vessel operators to make more informed decisions and better evaluate the most cost effective route.
