Blue Sky Network... Totally Fuelish

[SatNews] Blue Sky Network has just won a project to implement FuelTrax(r) Marine Fuel Management and GPS tracking on offshore support vessels in Nigeria. A major petroleum company is now piloting these technologies on boats in the African region and benefiting from the increased accountability, safety, and efficiency the system provides.

Developed by Nautical Control Solutions of Houston, Texas, FuelTrax specifically identifies operating inefficiencies on a vessel or across a fleet. Moving beyond simple fuel metering, FuelTrax gathers a broad range of fuel-related information and presents it to captains, operations, maintenance, and fleet management so that problem areas and inefficient activities are easily and quickly identified. Blue Sky Network’s D2000 GPS tracking and communications transceiver will work in coordination with FuelTrax to offer offshore marine assets a superior level of safety and security. Fuel consumption information from FuelTrax will be incorporated with Blue Sky’s SkyRouter software service to let those onshore communicate with crew members, track vessel location and monitor fuel consumption – all from one convenient interface.
