The purchase of SMART by GreenSteam, follows a strategic business review by GreenSteam to expand its portfolio of services, extend its data collection capabilities and expand their service team.

We are very pleased to take on board BMT SMART and integrate their services with our own, this will further accelerate the growth phase that we are already experiencing across all marine sectors.
With the purchase of BMT SMART we can offer our customers even more performance insights and a greater level of service.”
David McSweeney, CFO of BMT said: “We are pleased to complete the sale of SMART. GreenSteam has a strong strategy in place in machine learning-based vessel performance solutions that synergises the digital and consulting aspects of the existing business for the benefit of the customer”.
