Applied Weather Technology and Transas Marine Announce Integration of On-Board Routing and Navigation Systems to Optimize Voyage Planning, Ensure Safety AWT's BVS Routes Will Now Be Viewed in Transas' On-Board ECDIS System.

 

Applied Weather Technology, Inc. (AWT) and Transas Marine today announced an integration of two key on-board tools – AWT's BonVoyage System (BVS), the world's most popular on-board weather routing system, with Transas' market-leading Electronic Chart Display Navigation System (ECDIS) – to help Captains fully optimize their voyage planning. With this union, Captains can transfer data from BVS to Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS and vice-versa to efficiently and safely navigate their voyages. 

 

"The combination of these two industry-leading systems is a key advantage for our clients," said Skip Vaccarello, president and CEO for AWT. "Now, Captains can see their routes optimized by BVS plotted into the ECDIS navigation system. This will give Captains the ability to navigate with pinpoint accuracy the safest and most efficient routes for their specific vessels."

 

BVS is used by captains aboard more than 4,000 ships to identify the safest and most time-efficient or fuel-efficient routes to their destinations, given the latest weather and sea conditions as well as vessels' specifications. BVS 6.0 has features designed to help ship Captains and fleet managers reduce fuel costs and curb CO2 emissions. It also provides other innovations such as 16-day forecasts updated four times daily, and 10 years of historical climate data for planning voyages longer than 16 days.
