Baku, Azerbaijan, May 16
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
Topaz Energy and Marine (Topaz), a leading offshore energy logistics company of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has installed FUELTRAX electronic fuel management system (EFMS) across 21 of its vessels operating between Nigeria and Azerbaijan for data storage and surveillance, Trend reports citing Topaz.
FUELTRAX delivers an electronic record of activities using automated operational and fuel data collection, coupling it with precise in-transit efficiency recommendations for vessels located anywhere in the world.
“Digitalization offers tremendous opportunities for the Maritime industry across all sectors and disciplines, and operators are now increasingly acknowledging its importance. As our clients’ demands evolve and shift towards a need for a range of services and solutions, the onus of fuel monitoring will eventually fall on the vessel owners. Through the installation of FUELTRAX, we, as an early adopter of this solution, are ready to face this challenge, and look forward to using FUELTRAX in our attempt to reduce fuel consumption and thereby the environmental footprint of our vessels.” Chief Operating Officer, Martin Helweg, Topaz Energy and Marine, said.
Topaz signed contract extensions in March 2019 for 12 of its vessels currently supporting the offshore operations of BP Exploration (Caspian Sea) Limited (BP) in Azerbaijan.
Under the terms of the agreement, seven of the offshore support vessels will be under contract until 2025, three until 2023 and two until 2022.
