Gain control of your floating assets lightship weight management.


Lightship weight control

For any floating asset the control of weight is essential in order to safely manage the stability and maintain compliance with relevant regulations. A key part of any vessel’s overall weight is the lightship weight. The management of lightship weight is essential in order to ensure both safety of the asset as well as maintaining regulatory compliance. 

PIXYS makes your lightship survey and weight management process simple and accessible.
