Chembulk Tankers owned and operated a specialized fleet of stainless-steel chemical tankers ranging from 8,500 -35,000 DWT, and trade specialty commodities globally. StormGeo, the leader in weather intelligence, ship routing and fleet performance management solutions, has provided Chembulk with ship routing advisory services since 2016.
Recently, Chembulk upgraded their service to include StormGeo’s Strategic Power Routing (SPR). SPR integrates statistical speed loss and engine data (RPM and MCR) with weather algorithms to provide RPM recommendations to vessels. With SPR, Chembulk can maximize fuel savings, optimize power output, and reduce the emissions of their vessels, all while keeping safe from adverse weather.
There are plenty of options for weather routing services, but we like StormGeo as the right amount of information is provided in a very usable format. Others provide so much detail that it's almost impossible to establish what is being reported, especially for the Masters on board who do not have time to sift through or provide volumes of often superfluous data.Captain Melbourne Pinks

Strategic Power Routing is a key component to StormGeo’s s-Suite and is the latest addition to StormGeo’s Route Advisory Services. Unlike traditional sailing where a vessel maintains a single speed regardless of weather conditions, SPR guides a vessel to port on time, safely, and in most cases with at least a 3% reduction in fuel consumption and GHG emissions. The benefits of SPR are even more attractive with the introduction of the new Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII).
