ECDIS _1160 x 200

Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Solution by Transas

From ECDIS to integrated voyage planning

The connected ECDIS gives you significant new opportunities, including a completely new way of voyage and route planning: the computer can plan a route through the actual charts, weather optimize it, allows you to finetune and hazard-check it, download all needed charts and publications and auto-creates a voyage plan. See e-Navigation.

From e-Navigation to integrated fleet operations

The benefits of a connected ECDIS significantly extend to the onshore teams: Full and real time onshore visibility of vessel route and position, nautical awareness, near miss and incident response, vessel and voyage efficiency as well as inbuild connection to Ports.

From voyage efficiency to fleet efficiency

Connected vessels allow a very effective way of improving a whole fleets performance, not just a single voyage. Computerized notifications search all incoming data for pre-defined abnormalities and improvement areas, focus the office staff and crew to focus on key items and have them tackled right away.

Fleet Operations solutions puts fragmented services in shipping under one umbrella to lift synergies and improve operational processes: 

FOS General Scheme
  • Route planning happens on latest nautical charts resulting in a route always safe to sail
  • Build in weather optimization to find safe and most fuel efficient route
  • Data and charts are automatically delivered, no ordering, no USB
  • SmartLog allows ship-to-shore reporting with most data already pre-filled
  • A mobile tablet on board is used for SmartLog and 
    „Take me home“ ECDIS backup
  • Real time vessel and fleet tracking (no AIS holes)
  • Advanced Eniram fuel efficiency algorithms to spot more difficult saving levers

It can support a single travelling superintended with a tailored mobile app or run a full fleet operations center, which become commonplace in many large shipping companies. The full solution is notification driven, the users gets notified on all items he wants to see, be it a navigational, vessel performance, data quality or maintenance issue.

Fleet operations solutions consists of flexibly selectable modules that can be combined for each shipping companies needs:
