Wärtsilä Navi-Port is the first commercially available digital platform that connects a ship’s navigation system to the port and enables Just-in-time arrivals. Navi-Port facilitates accurate arrival times between ports and ships, enabling vessels to adjust speed to achieve just-in-time arrival automatically. Dynamic, real-time data sharing improves coordination allowing for modifications to course and speed should conditions at port change during a voyage. For ports, Navi-Port enables a better and more efficient port and terminal operations planning while also reducing congestion and the risk of collisions.
Riviera Maritime Media's podcast, in which our very own Bruce Mills (AFNI) reflects on the recent success of Wärtsilä Voyage's Navi-Port, winning Port & Terminal Digital Technology Award by Seatrade Maritime in association with Lloyd's List, and sheds light on how adopting digital port calls is a ‘low-hanging fruit’ in shipping’s decarbonisation drive.
