The Panama Canal has launched an Emissions Calculator, a tool to allow shipping companies to accurately assess their carbon emissions, which will also rank transiting vessels by the extent to which they have reduced carbon emissions by using the Canal versus alternate routes.
The Panama Canal is set to launch a new vessel scheduling and maritime resource management system to optimise the flow of ship traffic through the waterway.
The Panama Canal has launched an application for mobile devices, allowing users to access live webcams, tide charts for the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, and weather radar.
The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) is testing a system using satellite AIS (Automatic Identification System) to help vessels arrive just in time for their transit and reduce their fuel consumption.
Digital Ship magazine provides the latest information about maritime satellite communications technology, software systems, navigation technology, computer networks, data management and TMSA. It is published ten times a year.
