Tidetech data available through Veracity
Tidetech Commercial Marine will make its metocean data available to users of the DNV GL-hosted web services portal Veracity as data or via an API, enabling shipowners and managers to optimise their fleet operations, save fuel and increase vessel efficiency.
Tidetech is the only provider high resolution forecast modelling of coastal tides and currents. This data is made available to customers daily and when integrated into navigation and passage planning processes, can reduce fuel consumption, emissions and voyage time, said the company.
The numerical models Tidetech constructs to forecast tidal elevations, currents, storm and tide surges draw on the skills of former UK government researchers who were the brains behind the world’s first operational tide-surge model.
Smart data delivery
“Tidetech produces models of tides and currents and supplies best scientific quality meteorological and oceanographic data for the commercial shipping industry, delivered via enterprise grade systems and APIs,” said Tidetech managing director Penny Haire.
Ms Haire pointed out the misconception that weather services only have a benefit when sailing in blue water. She added: “From simulations run for shipowners on their routes, we have proven definitively that on the North Atlantic there are more potential cost savings from optimising against currents in UK coastal and Northern European waters than there are across the whole Atlantic.”
