Maritime remote monitoring business, Reygar, and
carbon reduction and sustainability specialist, Cedar Marine, have partnered to
provide an integrated service for monitoring and reducing fuel, energy use and
carbon emissions, across vessels and business operations of firms in the marine
In the current climate of rising oil prices and pressures to reduce carbon footprints,
fleet operators are increasingly focused on identifying ways to reduce fuel and energy
use, as well as to demonstrate their environmental credentials to customers and
The integrated subscription service utilises measured fuel consumption and
emissions data from Reygar’s industry leading BareFLEET remote monitoring
product, in combination with additional information gathered by Cedar Marine on
other aspects of a customer’s operations, for a holistic and encompassing overview
of the business-wide carbon emissions profile.
This provides the customer with a comprehensive and accurate picture of their
energy and fuel use and emissions based largely on measured data, providing a full
and accurate picture of carbon liabilities across operations.
Cedar Marine specialises in assessing the complete energy, fuel and emissions impact
of a customer’s entire business operations. The company’s Carbon Management Plan
allows the customer to establish benchmarks, continuously assess their performance,
and demonstrate improvements over time.
Included in the service, and drawing on the naval architecture experience of its
founding team, Cedar Marine provides insight into specific measures a customer can
take to reduce their fuel/energy costs and emissions, based on the measured vessel
performance data supplied by BareFLEET in line with architectural and operational
characteristics for each vessel in the customer’s fleet.
Such an approach marries big data with human experience and insight, offering
customers actionable choices with quantified benefits based on solid and directly
relevant data, to improve their performance.
Chris Huxley-Reynard, Managing Director, Reygar commented: “As an industry,
we’re all hugely aware of the importance of moving towards more sustainable, and
less carbon intensive operations. But we can only make positive changes if we truly
understand at a really granular level the emissions and sustainability challenges across
our businesses. That’s why we chose to collaborate with Cedar to offer what we
think will be a really valuable and innovative service to customers; combining our
skills in data gathering and processing, with Cedar’s broad experience of carbon
monitoring and naval architecture insight.”
Owen Preece, Managing Director, Cedar Marine commented: “Since vessel fuel burn
is the major contributor to maritime emissions, combining accurate BareFLEET fuel,
speed and operational data with our understanding of the broader emissions profile
from other aspects of customers’ business operations allows us to offer the best
possible combination of data and insight to drive real operational evolution and
change across our customer base.
