Ascenz Maroka to equip GasLog's LNG carrier fleet

GasLog, a global provider of LNG shipping services, has given Ascenz Marorka, a GTT Group trademark, a contract to outfit its complete fleet of more than 35 LNG carriers with its Smart Shipping solution.

Following a thorough market screening, an in-depth technical study, and a pilot on two vessels, GasLog chose Ascenz Marorka.

The five-year contract includes the integration of high frequency sensor data as well as manually reported data, as well as a comprehensive set of online applications for managing, monitoring, and optimising the ships’ energy and environmental performance, such as weather routing, voyage management, hull and propeller performance monitoring, machinery optimisation, trim optimisation, emissions monitoring, and regulatory reporting.

Furthermore, GasLog will benefit from specific LNG features created by GTT’s unrivalled experience, such as LNG cargo management, boil-off gas optimisation, heel optimisation, LNG ageing, roll-over prevention, emergency departure management, and cargo conditioning.

The project comprises an innovative development path to make the Ascenz Marorka solution a main driver of the GasLog digital transformation and to support its goals of fleet performance optimisation, environmental compliance, and operational excellence.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, stated: “We are honoured by the trust that GasLog places in us to support them on their journey towards digitalisation, operational excellence and efficient decarbonisation.

“We are delighted to work hand-in-hand with a ship-owner that values technology and innovation to achieve great ambitions.”

Paolo Enoizi, Chief Executive Officer of GasLog, said: “We are delighted to extend our cooperation with GTT and use Ascenz Marorka platform to support our digital transformation agenda.

“The deployment of these innovative and unique solutions across our LNG carriers’ fleet will help us achieve our operational and environmental ambitions, through real time monitoring and analysis of our fleet’s technical and operational performance.”

In January 2023, french engineering group Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) announced the suspension of the development of 15 ice-breaking LNG carriers in Russia

One month later, GTT received €4.66 million ($4.9 million) in funding for the development of a CO2 capture system and intelligent operational performance solutions.
