Topaz Energy and Marine installs FUELTRAX for advanced fuel data reporting

Topaz Energy and Marine, an offshore energy logistics company, is partnering with FUELTRAX, a smart, real-time marine fuel management solution, on advanced fuel tracking and reporting.

Topaz has installed FUELTRAXEFMS across 21 of its vessels operating between Nigeria and Azerbaijan for data storage and surveillance. 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.

Chief Operating Officer, Martin Helweg, Topaz Energy and Marine, said: “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 Executive Officer Anthony George, FUELTRAX, said: “The market is recognizing the need for automated digitalization in fuel management, and is accepting electronic fuel  monitoring  systems  as  the  standard solution. It’s  important that we continue to recognise and support our clients who see this standard on the horizon, and who  are taking  action  to  stay  ahead  of  the  curve. Our partnership with  Topaz  is  a testament to this shift in the industry, and we look forward to supporting them through this advancement.”

In  line  with  its  digital  transformation,  Topaz  has  also  adopted FUELTRAX  Vision, a new onboard  surveillance  system which provides  a remote  view  of  onboard  surveillance footage, stored in a secure database and correlated with onboard fuel activities.
