Norway’s StormGeo has expanded its partnership with Taiwan’s U-Ming Marine for the dry bulk shipowner to move toward the application of a more comprehensive digital platform on 33 of its vessels.

The new partnership combines U-Ming’s platform with StormGeo’s ship-to-shore fleet and voyage management solutions, FleetDSS and ECO Insight. The integration of FleetDSS and ECO Insight expands U-Ming’s digitalisation to improve safety, fuel efficiency and compliance and sustainability.

U-Ming and StormGeo already have a strong relationship through the integration of StormGeo’s weather and route optimisation software, BonVoyage System (BVS).

“We are pleased to know that StormGeo’s ship-to-shore fleet and voyage management solutions will enable our fleet to continually visualise the location, movement, and speed of our vessels, optimising our overall voyage performance,” said Jeff Hsu, executive vice president of U-Ming.

“The enhanced visualisation and transparency enabled through this partnership will lead to more efficient and effective management of our fleet,” Hsu added.

Dr Thilo Duckert, vice president of fleet performance management at StormGeo, pointed out that there is “great potential” when utilising an integrated solution provided by one company.

“Our ship-to-shore fleet and voyage management solutions can connect to all onboard data collection systems to improve efficiency and safety. Shore-based business units of U-Ming can quickly and easily make different business movements due to the benefits of connectivity and visibility from our all-in-one integrated digitalisation solutions,” he said.
