Route-planning and optimization involves juggling safety, efficiency, navigation, costs, port rotation, ETAs, speed ranges and additional constraints, such as trim and seakeeping. For ship captains, this is a complex challenge that requires the aid of a decision-supporting tool to give them confidence in their decisions and support either and execution. MeteoGroup developed SPOS (Ship Performance Optimization System) to address these challenges.
  • Save fuel and time
  • Increase ship safety
  • Unburden Captains

Weather forecast input

Receive input up to four times a day, via e-mail or http download. Weather maps can be displayed on screen or printed. Over 20 input parameters for voyage optimization, salinity for ballasting, humidity and dew point for cargo ventilation.

Route planning and adjustment

Create route options based on time, cost or fuel constraints, either with or without a given ETA. Use MeteoGroup Route network to plan port-to-port routes, including navigational constraints and port approaches. Variable speed routing functionality ensures ships can avoid severe weather.

Conditional parameters input

Specify and update vessel and voyage data during transit. Use the MeteoGroup Ship Profile Library, developed with MARIN, which contains advanced algorithms for the resistance impact of wind and waves on specific vessel types

Ship-to-shore reporting

Share travel updates with configurable reporting options. Allroutes, communications and performance indicators are available for onshore stakeholders via the FleetGuard web platform. Integration with FleetGuard and RouteGuard ensures a shared view across fleets.

Sea Keeping (add-on)

Protect motion-sensitive ships and cargoes.

Trim Advice (add-on)

Optimize trim using ship characteristics, voyage loading conditions and waves.
