Canadian operator of dry bulk vessels Norvic Shipping has completed migration from Veson Nautical’s IMOSlive system to the cloud-based Veslink IMOS Platform (VIP).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Reportedly, Norvic Shipping made the switch to VIP in order to increase operational efficiency and reach by providing employees with 24/7 universal access to business systems and introducing dynamic cloud-based updates and features on a continuous basis.

Norvic currently manages over 650 voyages a year. With a cloud-based solution, Norvic plans to build upon this foundation with digital tools that streamline workflows.

“A critical element behind the expansion of our partnership with Veson, is that we see Veson continuing to invest in the development of the product and in maintaining a high service and support standard,” said Majbritt Jacobsen, head of business process & applications at Norvic. “The ability to drill down in our data and present the findings in an intuitive format is becoming increasingly important in driving our P&L focus. The Veslink IMOS Platform provides this ability.

“Since we are a medium-sized company making the switch to the Platform, we can be more agile and efficient in voyage management. This will provide us with a competitive edge,” added Ms Jacobsen.

“It is very exciting to see Norvic Shipping adopt the Veslink IMOS Platform as they continue to invest in digital strategies designed to support the company’s rapid growth,” stated Ignacio Labarthe, regional account manager at Veson Nautical. “I look forward to continued engagement with our partners at Norvic Shipping as we partner to bring innovative solutions to the forefront of the shipping industry.”

Norvic is planning to incorporate more Veson solutions into daily operations, beginning with implementation of Veson’s Trading & Risk Module to aid in building out its risk department. {/mprestriction}

    Martin Taylor, chief executive officer of OneOcean, said: “We are excited to be opening this new Tokyo office to provide a dedicated service for local customers.

Mr Nakagawa has over 20 years’ experience in the maritime industry, bringing exceptional industry knowledge and expertise, having helped vessels transfer from paper to digital navigation from the technology’s inception.

  • i4sea signs up as Inmarsat Fleet Data provider

    Brazil-based startup i4sea and Inmarsat have signed an agreement for i4sea to join a group of certified application providers to provide a dedicated application for Inmarsat’s Fleet Data service.

    Fleet Data collects data from onboard sensors, pre-processes that data, and uploads it to a central cloud-based database, equipped with a dashboard and an Application Programming Interface (API).

    The partnership came as a result of the Bluetech Accelerator, a program created by the Portuguese Ministry of the Sea in 2019 to create an ecosystem of maritime innovation and business acceleration. i4sea was one of 20 startups around the world – and the only one from Latin America - selected to develop pilot projects with maritime market leaders including Inmarsat.

    Headquartered in Salvador, Brazil and with offices in São Paulo, Shanghai and London, i4sea will provide a high-precision sea and weather forecasting application with up to seven days forecasting in advance through i4cast’s Atm Ocean tool.

    “As a Certified Application Provider, we will be constantly developing new features to generate increasingly powerful tools for the maritime market,” said i4sea CEO Bruno Balbi. “Working with a company like Inmarsat is really a great deal for i4sea and this is the first smart system that integrates in a single platform, all the essential tools to support decision making regarding vessel’s maneuvers and port terminal’s operations,” he said.

    Six integrated tools are offered and includes services such as ocean and weather hyperlocal forecasts, dynamic draft prediction, terminal efficiency analytics and analysis and prediction of siltation or erosion dynamics of the seabed.

    “We are delighted to be working with such an innovative start-up such as i4Sea, a company we worked with as part of the Portuguese Bluetech accelerator programme earlier this year,” said Marco Cristoforo Camporeale, head of digital Solutions, Inmarsat Maritime. “

    “This tie-up will allow ship operators and managers to both route plan and improve terminal efficiency and this is all achieved through the i4sea application on Fleet Data and via a secure platform that is fully scalable, fleet-wide and now commercially available on both Fleet Xpress and FleetBroadband,” said Mr Camporeale.

    Currently, i4sea's clients include Brazilian companies such as TECON Salvador (Wilson, Sons), Açu Petróleo, CSN Coal and Ore Terminal, Cotegipe Port, Bahia’s Maritime Authority, Itajaí Port, Enseada, among others. There are also international contracts with the ports of Leixões and Sines, in Portugal.
