SPOS

Optimizing on-board performance

You need to ensure you are travelling on the most efficient route available, whether that is the shortest, the quickest or the most fuel efficient. SPOS helps you to prioritize the parameters that are most important to you, taking into account weather, ocean currents, speed and fuel curves, while securing the safety of your crew, vessel and cargo.

Increased voyage optimization

Plan your departure and arrival times more precisely and provide updates during voyages with daily route-optimization reports. You can reduce fuel consumption and voyage length, compare speed and route alternatives for future journeys.

Product highlights

Detailed Weather Information On Board

Information provided on board allows captain and crew to adjust route calculations depending on the weather situation and the ship’s specific characteristics. The optimum route – for both safety and efficiency – can be updated in transit based on current conditions.

Flexible Route Calculations

SPOS is specifically designed to allow captain and crew to adjust the route calculations, even during transit. SPOS takes into account weather, ocean currents, speed curves, fuel curves and the ship’s specific characteristics, boosting safety levels for captains and crew.

Nautical MeteoBase (NMB)

Our in-house model is specially adapted for marine forecasts. Variables such as surface pressure, wind and waves, currents, ice and visibility, combined with expertise from skilled meteorologists and master mariners, make it simple to select the most favourable route for transit.

Trend Analysis

With the ability to make comparisons across your entire fleet, you can compare voyage times and discover trends, making you more efficient and saving you time planning future routes.

Office Integration & Delivery

Full integration with your office systems means planners and operators on shore are fully aware of a vessel's location and situation at all times. Forecasts are available twice daily via email or website. Weather maps can be displayed on screen or printed.

SEEMP Regulations

SPOS weather and voyage planning covers several SEEMP-related measures, including speed reduction, voyage execution, fixed ETA planning and fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
