FuelTrax Provides Activity Logging

Press Release
Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Houston – Nautical Control Solutions LP (NCS) announced that its FuelTrax system now provides the ability to enter activity codes for automatically coupling fuel usage numbers to location, date, and time. Wind and sea states are included.

“This effort started with our offshore support vessel customers, who have to log various activities each day as part of their charter requirements with petroleum companies,” said Anthony George, CEO of NCS. “The process is manual and can involve different paper-based forms created in house or provided by the oil company. It is not a difficult task, but can be tedious, particularly at the end of a shift. Day-to-day work can interfere with the process, and the very nature of manual entry can introduce errors which  can be compounded when these forms are sent to shore for manual entry into another system.”

“FuelTrax activity logging improves the process by providing drop-down menus and pre-defined information for easy coding of time slices,” continued George. “The vessel’s captain or chief quickly applies the preloaded activity codes using a mouse; no keyboard entry is required. Data is entered accurately and is automatically offloaded each day during a normal FuelTrax data transmission. The activity codes are then paired with fuel data by date, time, latitude and longitude for reporting of vessel activities against fuel usage. It represents a big time saver for the crew and improved visibility for the ones paying the fuel bill. ”
