G2 Ocean rolls out voyage performance tools from StormGeo

Open hatch vessel operator G2 Ocean has partnered with StormGeo to roll out weather routing and voyage performance services, including the BonVoyage System (BVS) and s-Insight platform for on-the-spot weather insights and route optimisation.

G2 Ocean will use s-Insight, a cloud-based self-service web portal for commercial, technical, and environmental fleet performance management. It offers onboard and onshore validation of ship-to-shore data streams and provides G2 Ocean with a complete overview of its entire fleet, with up-to-date information on vessel location, weather conditions, speed, and fuel consumption. G2 Ocean will use s-Insight to make decisions on optimal voyage speed and estimated time of arrival (ETA).

“We’re very satisfied with StormGeo’s services. Through the s-Insight platform, we gain good insight into current and historical voyage routing and performance, which help us make better decisions,” stated Trond Aga Haug, fleet performance manager at G2 Ocean.

BVS is a user-friendly route optimisation, voyage planning, and weather forecasting application. BVS will help G2 Ocean optimise its routes, monitor weather conditions, and plan for optimal navigation.

“We have installed the BonVoyage System (BVS) onboard our vessels. This tool gives our crew high-quality and accurate weather maps at their fingertips – assisting the master and officers in making good routing decisions and safeguarding the vessel, crew, and cargo,” adds Haug.

“StormGeo is very excited to have G2 Ocean onboard and provide actionable decision support with our advanced tools and route analysis experts. We have deep experience in routing bulk carriers and offer a future-proof solution that not only provides weather routing and fleet performance services but also lays the foundation for an environmentally compliant operation. We look forward to being G2 Ocean’s partner in the digital future of shipping,” said Rolf Reksten, VP of route advisory services at StormGeo.
