HONG KONG shipmanagers Anglo-Eastern has partnered with Helsinki's Wartsila technology group to digitise its Fleet Operations Solution (FOS).
FOS integrates individual processes that are otherwise separate from each other to optimise the planning, weather routing, fuel consumption and vessel speed, said the press release.
It also facilitates ship-to-shore reporting and fleet performance management to reduce fuel consumption, taking into consideration charter party compliance, speed management, as well as hull, propeller and engine condition.
Key benefits of deploying FOS include a unique platform that integrates with a ship's planning station and electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS), cloud computing power, machine learning, data analytics and onboard/onshore mobile applications.
'Realising the opportunities made possible by Wartsila's Fleet Operations Solution, we look forward to contributing to the further development of the solution as an early adopter,' said Anglo-Eastern CEO Bjorn Hojgaard.
Said Anglo-Eastern training chief Pradeep Chawla: 'We believe that Wartsila's Fleet Operations Solution will further increase ship navigational safety, reduce crew workload and improve fuel efficiency.'
