AtoBviaC offers navigators  online calculation of SECA (Sulphur Emission Control Area) & North America ECA (Emission Control Area) distances

The imminent tightening of fuel control areas around the US is providing ship operators with a new set of challenges to face in the drive for cost effective operations. AtoBviaC has provided the answer to cost control during affected voyages with its new Port to Port – Online version of the BP Shipping Marine Distance Tables.

“Our research has shown that it is rarely cost effective or practical to avoid these routes entirely,” said Captain Trevor Hall, Director of AtoBviaC. “It is, however, essential to accurately calculate in advance the impact on vessel operating costs and to identify where a slight adjustment of route will avoid unnecessary incursion into an ECA.

“We have implemented SECA distance calculations into our distance table matrix from the time the various control areas came into effect, but with only a few weeks to go until implementation of the North American ECA, ship operators need to be aware they are on a countdown to unexpected costs if they do not make the correct provision for the additional fuel costs they will incur.”

AtoBviaC route tables provide routeing and distance information for the maritime industry, delivering realistic calculations of journey options. This new product also sees the launch of a brand new user friendly interface which uses Microsoft’s Silverlight ® technology to provide exceptional functionality that is familiar and easy to use. Working on a Windows PC or an Apple Mac, it now incorporates a new, easy to use purchasing structure which enables the user to purchase a block of distances.
