StormGeo has launched an integrated, navigational and route optimisation platform which connects onboard solutions to shore-based decision support for improved operational efficiency and fuel savings.

The Navigator Solutions Portfolio consists of the combination of onboard, onshore and weather routing services. Onboard solutions integrate all voyage-planning elements into one optimal workflow, with a focus on usability and connectivity. Onshore solutions will connect the onboard navigation and route optimisation to shore-based commercial and technical operations, as well as performance management, integrating weather, voyage reporting and expert assistance.

Svein Kåre Giskegjerde, StormGeo vp of shipping, said: “The Navigator Solutions Portfolio is significant news for ship operations and management because it improves the connection of the onboard navigational planning station to continuous shore analysis, advice and decision making.”

Single vendor benefits

StormGeo recently acquired Nautisk, a global supplier of digital maritime charts and publications to the merchant marine.

As the Navigator Solutions Portfolio is delivered by a single vendor, internal information can be shared and the full benefit of digitalisation utilised to improve performance and reduce costs.

Mr Giskegjerde added: “Because this solutions portfolio is solely provided by StormGeo, customer service, cybersecurity and rapid future innovation will be greatly enhanced.”

As part of the Navigator Solutions Portfolio, StormGeo is today also launching NaviPlanner BVS, the first fully integrated navigational planning and route optimisation software in the market.
