OneOcean will connect the whole industry, says CEO

Following the formation of OneOcean, a merger  between Canadian navigation solutions provider Marine Press and London-based ChartCo, Martin Taylor, the new firm’s CEO, has outlined its ambitions to accelerate change and “connect the whole maritime industry.”

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The merger has created the largest digital solutions provider in the maritime sector and aims to bring down barriers between ship and shore-side teams through its increasingly interconnected maritime technology.

“OneOcean will play a major part in accelerating the rate of change in the maritime industry,” said Mr Taylor, indicating it will do so by “providing the richest maritime data set, optimised for simple, informed decision making.”

The company will draw on its strength in R&D to further develop innovative maritime software solutions to guide the shipping industry through the rapidly evolving digital landscape. At the same time, it will continue to simplify the increasingly onerous task of global regulatory compliance for crew and operators.

Commenting that the maritime industry is currently fragmented, Mr Taylor explained OneOcean’s solutions will pull together data and systems from a wide range of sources from legislation to detailed Port data and revolutionary tracking software; to provide a value-add to customers and the industry.

He added: “OneOcean’s unitary platform will connect all ship and shore-based operators – linking owners, managers and crew with port information, regulations, safety and environmental requirements – to enhance operational efficiency across the board. Transforming data into intelligent information will also provide transparency and enable informed decisions to be made by our customers, resulting in true reductions in total operational costs.

“OneOcean will also help anticipate problems in advance. It already automatically flags up anomalies – set according to user preference – such as a weather scenario affecting a voyage plan or environmental discrepancies between operations and regulations. In addition, it will highlight a range of issues captains and shore-based crew face in day-to-day ship operations, such as likely late arrivals or possible berth delays, to aid planning.” {/mprestriction}
