Oman’s Asyad Shipping has signed a technology partnership with Onsor Technologies, an up and coming start up, to provide innovative IT solutions to its fleet.
In particular Onsor Technologies will be looking into the current requirements of Asyad’s shipping fleet and working on enhancing its operations by developing Internet of Things (IoT) sensors. These will be installed on some Asyad ships to wirelessly transmit engine performance data and readings to dedicated servers ashore. These devices, which are designed to enable better and faster data processing and analysis using machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms, will help monitor and improve the performance of the company’s fleet, reducing downtime and maintenance costs, promoting sustainability and improving operational efficiency.
Asyad Shipping operates a diversified shipping fleet of around 65 vessels with a total capacity of 9.7 million DWT. Its fleet incudes VLCCs, product and chemical tankers, LNG carriers, multi-purpose vessels and container ships.
