This integration will allow users to transfer data from BVS to Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS, and vice-versa.
BVS is used by approximately 4,000 ships and provides data on weather and sea conditions that can be used to improve voyage planning, reducing fuel costs and CO2 emissions. It offers 16-day forecasts updated four times daily, and 10 years of historical climate data.
“The combination of these two industry-leading systems is a key advantage for our clients,” said Skip Vaccarello, president and CEO for AWT.
“Now, Captains can see their routes optimised by BVS plotted into the ECDIS navigation system. This will give Captains the ability to navigate with pinpoint accuracy the safest and most efficient routes for their specific vessels.”
