ChartCo to integrate MeteoGroup weather data

ChartCo reports that it has agreed a new partnership with MeteoGroup to deliver its weather routing technology services through the ChartCo OneOcean e-navigation software platform.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}OneOcean can be used to manage route and passage planning, environmental compliance and navigation data, functionality which will be supplemented with MeteoGroup’s services to minimise fuel consumption and emissions by calculating and recalculating optimum routes, and anticipating oncoming weather and sea conditions.

MeteoGroup offers a custom software development kit (SDK) based on its SPOS (Ship Performance Optimisation System) product, which will be used to connect to the OneOcean platform. ChartCo will also offer further MeteoGroup services to its customers under the terms of the agreement.

“Our quest was to build a flexible, cost-effective, integrated weather offering suitable for a wide range of vessels,” said Martin Taylor, CEO of ChartCo.

“I still find it incredible that the majority of vessels only have access to the very basic weather warnings from their Navtex system. This partnership supports our vision to bring innovative, valuable services to a wide range of sectors within commercial shipping. We are really excited to now be able to offer our shipping and offshore customers the best, and safest, weather services within our solutions.”

“MeteoGroup has shown deep domain knowledge and technical competence while developing a specific solution for our ChartCo OneOcean platform. Their well-executed, agile work process, governance and planning has resulted in an excellent synergy with our products. Our MeteoGroup-powered solution provides a consolidated service that takes more weather feeds, more often, than any other provider, including data from the ECMWF, the UK Met Office and NOAA’s NCEP.”{/mprestriction}
