The Wartsila Fleet Operations Solution (FOS) will be applied to Hong Kong-based Anglo-Eastern’s global fleet, and support full voyage planning and execution, as well as engine performance and fuel efficiency monitoring.
“We are keen to leverage the advantages of the latest digital solutions to maximise the efficiency of our voyages and the performance of our fleet. Realising the opportunities made possible by Wartsila’s FOS, we look forward to contributing to the further development of the solution as an early adopter,” said Captain Bjorn Hojgaard, ceo of Anglo-Eastern.
The Wartsila FOS integrates individual processes that are otherwise separate from each other to optimise the planning, weather routing, fuel consumption, and speed of a vessel. It also facilitates ship-to-shore reporting and fleet performance management to reduce fuel consumption, taking into consideration charter party compliance, speed management, as well as hull, propeller and engine condition.
The Wartsila FOS includes a unique platform that integrates a ship’s planning station and electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS), cloud computing power, machine learning, data analytics, and onboard/onshore mobile applications.
Torsten Buessow, managing director of Wartsila’s Transas business unit, said: “Our FOS is exactly what we mean when we at Wartsila talk about utilising a Smart Marine approach to raise efficiencies, improve safety, and reduce the carbon footprint of shipping. We are excited to be bringing these benefits to the Anglo-Eastern fleet over the coming 12 months.”
