tallink selects Fleetrange IoT as the company-wide Operational Awareness solution
Estonian based AS Tallink Grupp and Finnish maritime innovator Fleetrange Ltd have entered into an agreement to provide Tallink with a state-of-the-art, real-time IoT-powered operational awareness solution. The solution is designed for instant sharing of operational information between ships and shore organisations. Fleetrange IoT for Tallink features real-time ship motions, accurate ship weather data as well as a live on-demand video feed from Tallink’s 13 Cruise ships, Fast ferries and RoRo ships sailing under the Tallink and Silja Line brands.
“We have been looking for a fleet-wide operational awareness solution for a few years and the solution offered by Fleetrange meets all our key needs, such as ship tracking, combined with real-time motions, video, wind sensor data and accurate weather forecasts as well as other powerful tools for our Captains. We believe that Fleetrange will enable us to further increase our very high service quality and safety levels”, – says Captain Tarvi-Carlos Tuulik, Head of Ship Management at Tallink.
Containerships plc selects Fleetrange for Operational Awareness
Finnish logistics company Containerships plc has chosen Fleetrange as the company’s Operational Awareness solution. Fleetrange enables Containerships to easily track and share real-time operational information, such as Estimated Times of Arrival (ETA), vessel locations and terminal weather and status to all relevant stakeholders within the company. Fleetrange is also used for operational itinerary- and route planning as well as emergency response.
“… The best thing with Fleetrange is that it combines and visualises all our relevant operational data into one easily accessible view for our wall displays, intranet and mobile phones. We can also utilise Fleetrange to automatically and systematically track and trend Operational Quality events, such as high winds in terminals or heavy weather along our routes. We really enjoy working with Fleetrange as they provide a seldom-seen level of engagement and response to our special requests and we look forward to a long and prosperous cooperation” – says Pekka Järnefelt, Sea Operations Director of Containerships plc
Meriaura uses Fleetrange Cargo to optimise and digitalise operations
“We operate in the highly dynamic Baltic Spot-market where voyages are short and changes frequent. With Fleetrange we can easily optimise voyage planning, minimise ballast voyages and improve our energy efficiency” – says Managing Director Elisa Mikkolainen, Meriaura Ltd.
“One of our goals with Fleetrange is also to accurately follow-up and report the carbon footprint of our transport work, which enables us to compare this to our extremely eco efficient new EcoCoasters, which consume nearly 50% less fuel than conventional ships of similar size. At Meriaura we firmly believe that environmental efficiency and customer satisfaction go hand in hand.” We say, these are some nice words indeed!
But don’t take our word for it, just call her up and she will be more than happy to provide you with direct feedback on how our solution works and how we serve our customer. Fleetrange Cargo is the modern way to digitalise your Operational picture.
P&O Ferries selects Fleetrange IoT- technology for Weather Dependent Lashing studies and high accuracy motion measurements.
British-based company P&O Ferries has chosen Fleetrange IoT-powered solution to make motion measurement analysis for a selected RoRo ship. The Fleetrange solution automatically records ship location, speed, heading and ~30 motion and acceleration parameters at 1Hz high frequency. This enables high accuracy studies of the vessel’s movements in different sea-states. The solution also captures weather and wave data simultaneously with the ship data and results in a dataset which describes the vessel’s motion characteristics and cargo accelerations in various wave conditions. The data is then used in a WDL (Weather Dependent Lashing) analysis and the final outcome is a recommendation to the Captain on optimum and safe lashing for each voyage, taking into account the relevant weather forecast.
The WDL concept is designed to optimise lashing in a safe way and results in faster stevedoring work, shorter turn-round times in port and subsequently reduced emissions as the ships have less need to speed up to catch up a delay caused by un-optimal lashing schemes.
P&O Ferries operates from the United Kingdom to Ireland and Continental Europe (France, Belgium and the Netherlands). P&O Ferries carry nine million passengers on board every year. Fleet consist of 20 modern ships from comfortable cruise ferries to super-spacious ferries.
Fleetrange’s solutions serve the Maritime Industry’s future needs already today. Fleetrange provides innovative and cost effective IoT solutions for Real-time situational awareness and Operational Quality Assurance.
