Announced partnership to provide GHG reduction and optimal operation system
JRCS Co.Ltd. (1-2-14 Higashiyamato-machi, Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi, Chairman and President, JRCS Group CEO: Koichiro Kondo) and The Viswa Group (headquartered in Houston, U.S.A.) have entered into a partnership to provide optimal operation systems that maximize vessel performance and contribute to the marine industry’s efforts to achieve virtually zero greenhouse gas emissions.
JRCS Co.Ltd., a ship engine control system provider, and The Viswa Group, a digital solution provider, will provide an optimal navigation system with streamlined data analysis via their respective cloud environments.
The direct connection between JRCS’s “infoceanus connect”, and Viswa Group’s smart vessel cloud environment, allows companies to quickly optimize their vessel operations through live data monitoring, machinery status insight, electronic logbooks, and fleet KPI (Key Performance Indicator) evaluation. In addition, we will be able to offer systems that comply with regulations such as EU-MRV and IMO-DCS, which are in growing demand in GHG reduction efforts.
Vessel operational optimization is growing as more shipping companies analyze real-world data of their vessels. This trend toward everyday analysis – where performance evaluation occurs as part of the daily process – requires excellent quality and speedy data delivery to increase profitability.
JRCS and Viswa Group offer a solution to this need by providing no human interference with direct integration with onboard sensors, edge appliance and cloud.
The integration between JRCS, and Viswa Group allows the easy exchange of information through a cloud-based application with highest cybersecurity standards.
For companies in time pressured industries, these help to shorten and enhance decision-making.
