The provider of software tools for the offshore industry UniSea has agreed to take part ownership of the energy efficiency specialist Yxney.

“Yxney is experiencing rapid growth meeting the increasing demand for data-driven energy efficiency solutions in the offshore sector,” said CEO Gjord Simen Sanna of Yxney, which provides operational support and HSEQ (quality, health, safety, environment) to offshore industry.

“UniSea is a highly respected player in the industry with a large client base. Yxney already uses UniSea data as the source for our calculations on many vessels. Closer collaboration between the two companies will allow us to provide even more efficient data flows, ensuring added value of the data for our customers.”

UniSea CEO Kurt Roar Vilhelmsen had this statement: “UniSea focuses on helping shipping companies simplify their work processes through digitalization. Yxney has in only a short time succeeded in reaching the market with a solution using data available through UniSea software to reduce fuel consumption, costs, and environmental impact. We see exciting opportunities and added benefits for our customers through closer cooperation and integration of our solutions.”

The focus on fuel efficiency and related emissions is steadily growing in the maritime sector. A climate robust business model is quickly becoming a significant differentiator for shipowners and operators competing for contracts in the offshore charter markets.

With plug and play functionality, ship owners currently running UniSea can roll out the Yxney Maress energy efficiency management tool across their entire fleet virtually overnight.

“We believe the strategic partnership between Yxney and UniSea will benefit all stakeholders,” Sanna concludes. “UniSea has built a position as the preferred supplier of ship management systems to the offshore and maritime segments. With the new partnership, Yxney and UniSea will combine our expertise to meet growing demand for data-driven energy efficiency solutions for the offshore industry, and to assist ship owners in creating real business value from their own data.
