    AAS Council of Advisors Nominees


    Yoong Hui Chia, USQ International Alumnus of the Year 2017 Nominee

    Yoong Hui Chia

    International Alumnus of the Year

    Nominee 2018


    Yoong Hui Chia, Founder and CEO of Ascenz, the leading operational risk intelligence company in the maritime industry.

    Yoong Hui founded the company to support ship owners in managing the significant reputation, regulatory and social license to operate risks to sustainably operating their business.

    Ascenz is renown for the development and supply of remote fuel monitoring systems for shipping companies to track fuel consumption and bunkering. The company’s patented software monitoring system allows data to be delivered from moving ships to an onshore control office, which in turn gives Ascenz’s customers a way to monitor fuel usage in real-time and take proactive actions to protect employee health and safety and maximise fuel utilisation. Given the huge risks of piracy in the shipping industry, the system also serves as a locating device by sending back information about the ship’s engines and current location. Given the world's dependence on oil, every small change that his technology's analytic tools encourages a shipowner to make, can only be a positive step for the planet.
