Helikon Expands Use of GNS Voyager

Maritime Activity Reports, Inc.

Maritime services group Global Navigation Solutions (GNS) announced that London-based bulk carrier operator Helikon Shipping Enterprises has expanded its use of its VOYAGER software solution across its fleet to take advantage of VOYAGER’s advanced route planning and optimization tools.

 
Helikon, a customer of GNS for more than a decade, has extended its contract to make use of the navigational efficiency tools available within the VOYAGER solution. In addition to VOYAGER’s inventory management, compliance management and chart updating functionality, the fleet is now also using A2BviaC digital distance tables and Meteo Group’s SPOS weather routing technology, all of which is enabling Helikon to improve route planning and achieve greater fuel efficiencies.
 
Commenting on the decision, Matthew Wooldridge at Helikon Shipping Enterprises said, “By extending our use of VOYAGER to include added value services like A2BviaC and SPOS weather optimization we are able to optimize operations for weather and other factors more easily and more efficiently.”
