Singapore and Malacca Straits Tidal Models Released

Press Release
Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Recently developed commercial tidal models for the Singapore and Malacca Straits have been released in an exclusive online viewer.



Developed by applied oceanography specialist Tidetech, the online viewer – OceanView – is an entry-level version of the company’s tidal models, viewable on any internet browser and on internet capable mobile devices.



OceanView offers a detailed tidal current atlas featuring tidal current predictions at 1km resolution for every 30 minutes. Other features include latitude and longitude, place names, scale showing speed of current in knots (no interpolation necessary), and shipping lanes for easy reference. Along with viewing via internet browser, the data cab be downloaded as PDF or printed prior to sailing for use as a hard copy tidal atlas.



“This is a region that experiences very high traffic density and is faced with complex tides that have a significant effect on passage time and fuel consumption,” Ms. Haire said.



The OceanView online viewer represents a way for ships to begin achieving efficiency savings with tide and current data. Tidetech can then work with partners to provide solutions for full integration for route and speed optimization.



Trials with both OceanView and fully integrated oceanographic data are running currently with container vessels, cruise ships and ferries in various regions around the world. Tidetech is presenting trial results at the Green Ship Technology conference in Hamburg, March 12–14, 2013, and the Green Shiptech China Congress in Shanghai, April, 18–19 2013.



Tidetech’s team of oceanographic scientists and commercial navigators have access to global bathymetry [depth] data, satellite altimetry information and local observations, which they use to calculate hydrodynamic models using highly-complex equations of motion that govern fluid dynamics. In-house data engineers can integrate the data to bridge systems, with optimisation systems delivered via route optimization software.
