German shipowner OKEE Maritime, which manages a fleet of ten container vessels in regional feeder services worldwide, has adopted StormGeo’s digitalisation tools to improve environmental performance.
In addition to onboard weather-based route optimisation software and data reporting tools from StormGeo, Hamburg-based OKEE Maritime has added fleet performance management services to its arsenal. This gives them access to StormGeo’s s-Insight platform for environmental performance, which includes the newly released Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) Simulator, a tool to help owners and operators achieve desirable CII ratings.
“Our vessels are competitive, and we want them to continue this way. StormGeo CII Simulator supports us in determining CII ratings and finding ways to improve them through implementing operational measures,” said Bastian Herkendell, fleet manager at OKEE Maritime.
OKEE Maritime will also receive StormGeo’s alert services as part of its fleet performance management solution. The experts from StormGeo’s fleet performance centre provide customised alerts of vessel performance and inform crew onboard and shore-based fleet managers. These services will help OKEE Maritime improve ship-to-shore transparency and operational efficiency. “Having transparency in our operations that includes CII tools supports us in optimising operational efficiency jointly with our charterer,” said Bastian.
