Jeppesen has launched updated versions of its Voyage and Vessel Optimization Solution (VVOS) and FleetManager software. The functionalities added to Jeppesen’s VVOS Version 2.3 and Jeppesen FleetManager Version 1.4 are a direct result, say the company, of listening closely to and working hand-in-hand with its customers.

Jeppesen has enhanced its VVOS Version 2.3 voyage optimization product by incorporating Emission Control Area (ECA) boundaries, and adding restricted RPM zones. FleetManager Version 1.4, a shoreside fleet management product, also features improved performance analysis and reporting tools.

Information on international ECA boundaries is critical for efficient and cost-effective ship voyage planning. ECA boundaries mark areas where ships are required to switch to low sulfur fuels to comply with ECA regulations and improve coastal air quality. The process of fuel switching may take as long as 24 hours and is best achieved with advance planning. In addition, international maritime authorities, including the U.S. Coast Guard and port officials, can impose penalties on ships that use high sulfur fuels inside ECA zones. This new function of VVOS Version 2.3 is designed to help vessels plan their voyages in accordance with these regulations.

Another key advantage of VVOS Version 2.3 is its new ability to exclude user-defined engine RPM ranges during simulation and optimization, enhancing both vessel efficiency and safety at sea.

Jeppesen FleetManager 1.4 has also been enhanced to meet the needs of today’s shipping customers, with new reporting features customized to the needs of vessels and shoreside offices. FleetManager 1.4 provides accurate, reliable data for a range of ship performance parameters. It allows individual customers to focus on data most important to them and to report it according to their business requirements:  daily, weekly, for an entire passage, etc. FleetManager 1.4 also uses a new reporting infrastructure that allows us to easily tailor reports to ensure that customers are always able to review key performance indicators and reports that drive their business.
