Yxney's Maress application is a digital management solution for decarbonizing maritime operations, providing vessel owners and operators with insight needed to reduce fuel consumption and emission footprint. Maress facilitates transparency and a new way of collaborating towards industry emission targets. A unique baseline based on historic performance is calculated for every activity for every vessel. With an up to date and real-time overview of the operations of each vessel -and the total fleet, Maress makes analyzing the effect of individual energy saving initiatives, or whole programs easier. By January 2021, approximately 300 vessels are using Maress within the core segments offshore and shipping. Yxney has experienced rapid growth the past few years, demonstrated by an approximately 100 percent increase in its customer base from 2019 to 2020. The rapid growth suggests an increasing demand for data-driven solutions that reduce fuel consumption, costs, and environmental impact for shipowners and energy companies.
