Are you a suitable VTAS partner?

VTAS is seeking suitable partners for pilot trials

We will bring independent assessment and verification of energy saving technologies to the shipping industry - and the opportunity for early adopters to become partners in trials will help shape the benefits our service offer will provide.

In order to kick-start this process we are pleased to be able to provide financial contributions (ranging from match funding upwards) towards the installation, data assessment and interpretation for a limited number of appropriate pilots. If you have plans to deploy energy saving technologies to improve vessel performance – or are seeking support validating already installed equipment – then we want to hear from you. For example, by working closely together, we would install vessel performance equipment on your vessel(s) in exchange for vessel design and performance data in order to offer you the following particular benefits:

  • A comparison of fuel consumption on past voyages compared to modelled performance
  • A look ahead for potential fuel savings with the chosen energy saving technology and an assessment of the proposed technology
  • Support with your business case for the installation of the technology
  • Recommendations for operational changes that could enhance benefits and fuel savings
This approach will put partners in a robust knowledge rich environment able to make more informed business decisions.

If this opportunity is of interest and you would like to be considered as a VTAS partner, please contact Ian Sellwood through
