StormGeo and GNS in voyage optimisation partnership

GNS and StormGeo are combining their weather and navigation capabilities in a new partnership that will provide more than 20,000 vessels with fresh insight into voyage optimisation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Under the agreement, GNS will extend its Voyager Fleet Insight online service to include important weather-related services to support shore-side operations and decision-making. The collaboration will also see GNS and StormGeo develop onboard solutions to deliver ENCs direct to ECDIS that are optimised for GNS’s Voyager HUB and Voyager Planning Station onboard software. The new solutions will automate the distribution and management of ENC updating and reduce the workload of the bridge team while enhancing navigation compliance and safety.

In addition, the partners will provide tailored route optimisation services that can be simultaneously imported, viewed and used ashore and onboard to support enhanced voyage operations. Both companies are confident that data sharing and system integration is a vital step in streamlining collaboration between ship and shore.

“We have a passion for delivering weather insights and the best route- and vessel optimisation solutions to the global maritime community. We see a great potential in how we can provide increased this value for our customers. Since we acquired Nautisk last year, now integrated in the StormGeo portfolio of solutions, we recognise that the global market for navigation is bigger than we could serve alone. Partnering with the leader in navigational solutions and services that shares our strategy and vision for innovation makes good sense and reaches a larger share of the market with our solutions,” said Per-Olof Schroeder, CEO of StormGeo.

In StormGeo we have found a weather partner that shares our strategic vision to harness the power of software and analytics in keeping our customers safe, compliant and cost-efficient. Our software is capable of working with other weather and route optimisation solutions, but this relationship with StormGeo will result in a more integrated approach that will be easier for customers to use and will deliver additional value,” explained Paul Stanley, CEO of GNS.

  • Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy takes delivery of Wärtsilä Cloud Simulation solution

    Wärtsilä has successfully delivered its brand-new Cloud Simulation solution to Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy. Comprising a combination of cloud-based solutions, including navigational, engine room and liquid cargo handling simulators, Wärtsilä is the first company to offer class-approved cloud-based simulation technology to the maritime industry.

    The online installation was deployed in early July, allowing the Academy to continue providing its training despite ongoing social distancing and travel restrictions.

    Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy is a maritime training provider in the region, which is now powered by Wärtsilä Voyage technology. The addition of the online installations of NTPro and TechSim will broaden the simulation-based training offering available at the Academy.

    Cloud Simulation technology takes simulation beyond the boundaries of the physical classroom, to provide location and device independence, and to deliver simulation-based training wherever, whenever, and however it is needed by the user.

    Remote access to training allows students and instructors to reach various Wärtsilä Voyage simulation models on their personal devices, away from the classroom and without the need for specific Wärtsilä software. Both the TechSim and NTPRO platforms in the cloud provide a classroom configuration with trainer and multiple student stations for familiar instructor-led training.

    “We are excited to be at the leading edge of this technology in the maritime industry and enable trainees to acquire a wide range of navigational and engineering skills, without the need to physically attend the training centre. By having remote access to the simulation library and any classroom-based exercise, instructors can easily manage the application and deliver the training,” commented Torsten Büssow, director, Wärtsilä Voyage.

    "We are very pleased to have this next-generation of blended-learning solutions delivered by Wärtsilä Voyage. The bespoke training that this solution allows to deliver will undeniably enhance the training experience of our students. The Wärtsilä Voyage distance learning application will surely open up many new training opportunities inside and outside the physical classroom”, said Capt. Clive Hotham, head of Marine Short Courses and Simulator, Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy.
