Transas Marine announced that it has integrated MeteoGroup weather data in its FleetView Online SSAS-tracking software. With this integration Transas will have one global weather data supplier across the company’s navigation product range.

Utilization of weather service from the MeteoGroup in the FleetView Online (FVO) is a key advantage to Transas customers, the company said. FleetView Online weather interface provides current and five-day forecasted weather data over the entire chart folio, displaying sea conditions such as wind, waves and swell, current and other weather elements.

Presentation of MeteoGroup’s weather forecasts is already implemented in the Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS either through Navi-Planner voyage planning software or via an interface between Navi-Sailor ECDIS and MeteoGroup's SPOS program, and will allow for similar data presentation and management across all systems used onboard or ashore.

FleetView Online is a security protected web-based SSAS-Tracking service that provides processing and distribution of SSAS Alerts and displays vessel's position anywhere in the world anytime. FleetView Online operates with Transas ShipGuard Inmarsat D+/ISAT M2M/IsatData Pro terminals as well as with a wide range of Inmarsat C and Inmarsat mini-C terminals installed on-board. Vessel tracking through Fleet Broadband and a range of terrestrial & space-based AIS services is also available.
