Combining accurate vessel added resistance and sea-keeping data with best of breed weather forecasts SeaRoutes DSS navigates your particular vessel through the oceans optimizing bunker consumption and passage time according to the market conditions. Although system is producing voyage plans, weather forecasts and voyage summaries to be used onboard and ashore, it is totally different than the various weather routing systems in the market since it suggests the best path based on the detailed parameters of each vessel and the prevailing market requirements. No onboard installation is required, the optimization algorithm is executed ashore and the results are sent to the Master as a routing advice.

Result of an EU supported research project, emphasizing the need for innovative systems that improve the services quality, minimize the weather risks optimizing the passage cost and addressing optimally the inherited difference between the charterer and the operator.

SeaRoutes has been thoroughly evaluated in different vessel types, with significant savings in bunker consumption with optimal vessel time utilization.
