GlobalView updated to version 2.0

Applied Weather Technology (AWT) has announced the release of GlobalView 2.0, a new version of the company’s fleet management system.

The updated application features port forecasts, tide data, tools for customisation and direct access to bunker pricing, as well as improved safety features including global ice concentrations and spot forecasts with the latest weather and wave conditions.

In addition, fleet managers can now view the voyage tracks of captains using AWT’s BVS onboard system in GlobalView.

According to Erik Hjortland, advisor, ship performance and bunker management, Odfjell Tankers, the updated options should offer additional value to users of the system like himself.

“With the addition of port forecasts, spot forecasts and bunker pricing, GlobalView is an even more valuable fleet management platform,” he said.

“Ultimately, it helps us to be more efficient in managing our fleet.”

The software now allows fleet managers to plan and schedule the best time for loading/unloading to avoid periods of precipitation or strong winds, with port forecasts available for more than 2,500 locations with hourly updates out three days, and three and six hourly updates out five days.

Real-time bunker pricing is also available for more than 70 locations globally, updated throughout the day. Barging rates can be included, on a subscription basis, in partnership with LQM Petroleum Services.

An Eco-Speed Calculator is additionally included, used to calculate the estimated cost of voyages at different speeds. Users can add their own parameters into the system and the calculator will show a comparison.

“GlobalView 2.0 makes it easier to plan fuel efficient voyages by offering access to additional data in one place,” said Skip Vaccarello, president and CEO of AWT.

“The system also helps with critical functions like planning arrivals and optimal routes.”
