Integration of AMOS Connect and SPOS Weather for P&O Nedlloyd

Monday, July 21, 2003
P&O Nedlloyd has implemented the AMOS Connect e-mail system of Xantic in combination with the SPOS weather system on a selection of vessels. Via a MAPI protocol within AMOS Connect, the SPOS weather system can automatically create e-mail messages and place them in the outbox or check the AMOS mailbox for new weather forecasts. This eliminates the need for onboard staff to transfer files manually and therefore simplifies the work and reduces the risk of mistakes. IT manager of P&O Nedlloyd, Vermeulen said “I am enthusiastic about this combination which is a serious improvement. I have advised other suppliers to implement similar connections to the e-mail system since it is simple and working smoothly” The weather files containing wind, wave and cyclone forecasts are sent to the vessel on a daily or twice daily basis via Inmarsat. Since this is vital information for ship operations, a reliable link is essential and with the implemented connection, the officers can be sure that the forecast is available whenever they need it.
