Meteo Consult, Amarcon to Equip Maersk Line Vessels with SPOS Seakeeping

The Dutch weather routing software supplier Meteo Consult and Amarcon, have received an order from Maersk Line to equip a minimum of 110 Maersk Line container vessels with SPOS Seakeeping.

The Seakeeping plug-in is a feature within Meteo Consults weather routing software SPOS. With this plug-in the user can define vessel loading conditions and motion threshold values based on the input of Amarcon’s OCTOPUS-Onboard.

Amarcon, a fully owned subsidiary of ABB, provides monitoring and forecasting software solutions for performance and availability optimization of sea-going vessels, and is the leader in vessel motion prediction solutions.

In the SPOS Seakeeping chart, areas can be displayed where motions are expected to exceed the threshold values. In the route optimisation, the motions are also calculated and the route optimisation will automatically avoid areas where maximum motions will be exceeded.

With the Seakeeping plug-in the routing advice for a vessel is far more precise and tailored to the individual vessel, because of the fact that not only environmental conditions like wind, currents and swell are taken into account, but the effect that these changing conditions have on the overall seakeeping behaviour of the vessel.

In the coming months the software will be rolled out on a minimum of 110 vessels of the world wide operating cargo transporter Maersk Line.
