New weather service from Dryad Maritime

Dryad Maritime has released WxConnect, a new managed weather forecasting service for ships, delivered in digital format to support passage planning.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The service was developed by Dryad in-house with support from World Meteorological Organisation accredited meteorologists with seagoing experience, and will be offered with no subscription fee as a ‘Pay As You Go’ service.

“Ship owners, managers and masters are under ever-increasing pressure to meet various demands and make decisions that provide both commercial and safety benefits. WxConnect helps to reduce this burden by providing an on-demand, responsive service,” said Dryad Maritime’s chief operating officer, Ian Millen.

“For masters, there is always someone at Dryad watching over the vessel and available to give prompt, accurate and invaluable advice, helping them to choose the best route to complete their transit successfully and efficiently, avoiding unnecessary costs. For those ashore, we take the same diligent approach to enable compliance and ensure that managed fleets are operating in an optimal way.”

“Just like our risk services, the technology behind WxConnect stays in house, with the service delivered by former mariners, so there’s no need to manage software or computers on board ships or in headquarters ashore.”{/mprestriction}
