Recently developed commercial tidal models developed by applied oceanography specialist Tidetech for online viewing.

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 highly detailed and accurate 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.

Tidetech managing director Penny Haire said there was a “black hole” for detailed tidal current information in this region.
“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.

“There are thousands of ships that don’t fully realise the [fuel and efficiency] savings to made with accurate tidal current data, largely because it hasn’t previously been available.”

The OceanView online viewer represents an inexpensive 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 optimisation to gain maximum efficiency benefits.

“While the online viewer is not as powerful as the fully integrated version, it does provide detailed information where there hasn’t been any before,” Ms Haire said.
