- Portsmouth International is the first port in the UK to adopt the VeChain based solution MyCare which is being developed by DNV GL.
- The British port integrated MyCare to prove the “high quality standards” regarding the coronavirus.
Portsmouth International Port has just become the first British port to adopt My Care. The VeChain based solution, developed in collaboration with DNV GL, is designed to reduce the risks of coronavirus. According to a report by DNV GL, the port wants to reassure its passengers that all the necessary preventive measures have been taken against the spread of the pandemic.
In addition, the Port of Portsmouth, due to its “high quality standards” and amidst the decline in activity in the transport sector, has made the adoption of My Care to highlight the benefits of shipping. Andrew Williamson, Director of Passenger Operations at Portsmouth International Port, said:
Our aim was to give passengers confidence that the new preventative measures we have put in place are of the highest standard, and to highlight the benefits of international sea travel. This verification by DNV GL provides greater assurance about the efforts we are making to keep them safe. The entire port has worked together to ensure that we can carry out operations with the highest level of care.
The VeChain based solution applies a methodology to reduce the risk of infection that can be compared to a hospital. The methodology was developed by DNV GL to provide tools for managing, assessing and reducing the risk of infection from disease. However, My Care was also designed to be applied in business processes.
The data and information collected by My Care are stored on the VeChainThor blockchain. This ensures their immutability and security. Aileen Orr, UK business health leader at DNV GL, praised the port’s capabilities in managing infection risks. Orr added:
The port demonstrated that it has a well-considered approach to managing the risk of infection. Due consideration has been given to the latest international and local guidelines in conjunction with relevant industry bodies such as the British Port Authority (BPA). This demonstrates the willingness of the port to take the necessary measures to make the journey of its passengers as safe and comfortable as possible. Of particular note is the collaboration with operators leaving the port to ensure consistency in the management of the risk of infection.
My Care has been one of the most widely adopted solutions to mitigate COVID-19 in the world. In addition to the Portsmouth International port, the solution has been adopted by the Viking ferry line as well as Color Line and the Indian ITC Hotels group among others. Furthermore, My Care has been adopted by the pasta producer De Cecco, one of the world’s leading pasta producers. De Cecco implemented My Care as an extra security measure for its operating staff and other employees in the company’s various production plants.
Congratulations to Portsmouth International Port for achieving DNV GL’s MyCare Readiness Assessment. Giving confidence to passengers through an independent assessment of infection risk measures.https://t.co/AD83ucsRT5#InfectionPrevention #InfectionRisk #RiskManagement #MyCare pic.twitter.com/ysTfWACKmI
