ONE expands partnership with StormGeo to enhance fuel efficiency

Ocean Network Express (ONE) has furthered its partnership with StormGeo, providing ONE with greater access to ship routing services for better fleet performance monitoring, maintenance, and safety.

The partnership began in July 2019 and has expanded to include enhanced routing, ETA services for sensitive trade routes, and fleet-wide installation of StormGeo’s onboard software, s-Planner BVS.

“StormGeo’s products and services are an essential part of our onboard and onshore operations. Having access to weather forecasts specific to our voyages helps us manage our strict ETAs with a focus on safety and fuel efficiency. In a time of digitalisation and sustainability within shipping, we are proud to partner with a company who prioritises these values as much as we do,” said Sachin Sirsikar, general manager global vessel operations of ONE.

“Our customer service teams have a great relationship with ONE, particularly with their Global Ocean Route Advisory team in Singapore. We work hard to ensure their fleet is safe, timely and fuel efficient, utilising constant power to optimise their passages. It’s truly a win-win cooperation,” said Kim Sørensen, StormGeo’s COO Shipping.

As part of the recent expansion of the partnership, ONE vessels now have StormGeo s-Planner BVS installed, which utilises frequent, accurate forecast information to ensure avoidance of potentially damaging sea conditions. ONE’s onshore staff also have access to StormGeo’s s-Insight web platform, giving instant visibility of the location and performance of their entire fleet.
