Designed to anticipate client needs and provide intuitive, informed decision support, the smart functionality is an enhancement to the ABS MyFreedom™ client portal and can be accessed through a mobile app or text. The portal and the industry’s most user-friendly digital tools simplify access to operational, technical and compliance fleet intelligence and all ABS Class services to manage the operating health and performance of fleets.

New industry-leading smart functionality launched today includes:

  • The ABS Smart Scheduler™, which leverages real-time AIS data to maintain fleet compliance and is the industry’s only mobile survey booking tool enabling any survey, including remote surveys, to be scheduled in less than a minute anytime, anywhere – even when there is no internet access. It tracks survey status for all vessels in a fleet and then issues alerts when surveys are due.
  • Custom Checklist, which brings together port state data from all ABS-classed vessels to provide a port-specific checklist for crew and fleet managers prior to arrival at any port.
  • Fee Estimator, which provides a comparison of estimated survey fees across multiple ports.
  • Port State Control Risk, which provides customized port state control analytics by vessel or fleet. It allows clients to view their destination’s top deficiency items and the client vessel’s matching findings from ABS class records, along with a vessel risk rating based on compliance health status.
  • International Safety Management (ISM) Findings, customized to individual vessel performance, which allows clients to view the destination port’s top ISM related deficiency items against their vessel’s matching findings from ABS class records.
  • Port-Specific External Specialists, whichprovides one-touch direct client connections for upcoming surveys.

“Leveraging unprecedented access to data, we are delivering truly smart functionality that learns from the user and, with experience over time, anticipates future requirements, making it even easier to work with ABS,” said Christopher J. Wiernicki, ABS Chairman, President and CEO. “These are just the first of many enhancements and increased smart functionality that ABS will continue to deliver through the MyFreedom client portal. The portal brings together all of our clients’ Class needs digitally for a complete overview, so now it all clicks. Centralized and connected, it streamlines interactions with ABS, making our client experience straightforward and insightful.”

Offering enhanced risk management, compliance and operational efficiency through better informed decision making, MyFreedom delivers total fleet oversight, real-time survey status, smart scheduling, remote survey options, including annual surveys with mobile capture and collaboration, simplified access to compliance data and timely fleet certification renewals.

Panasonic Corporation meddelar verifiering av hämmande effekten hos hydroxylradikalerna, som finns i vatten (elektrostatisk atomiserad vattenpartikel i nano-storlek), på det nya coronaviruset (SARS-CoV-2)4.8.2020 14:32:00 CESTPressmeddelande

PanasoniPanasonic Corporation meddelade idag att de, i samarbete med Mayo Yasugi, docent, Department of Veterinary Science, Graduate School of Life and Environmental Sciences, Osaka Prefecture University, har verifierat den hämmande effekten hos hydroxylradikalernas, som finns i vatten, (elektrostatisk atomiserad vattenpartikel i nano-storlek) på det nya coronaviruset (SARS-CoV-2). Hydroxylradikaler som finns i vatten är partikelformiga joner som innehåller hydroxylradikaler som genereras genom att applicera en högspänning på fukt i luften. De karakteriseras av att de är starkt oxidativa och mycket reaktiva. Panasonic har bedrivit forskning på denna teknik under de senaste 20 åren sedan 1997 och har verifierat dess effektivitet på olika områden, inklusive hämning av patogen mikroorganism (bakterier, svampar och virus) och allergener, och att den bryter ned PM 2.5-komponenter som har negativa effekter på människokroppen*1. 2012 genomförde Panasonic ett virusklareringstest med en tredjep
