Wärtsilä Navi-Port is a middleware hooked up to Wärtsilä’s Fleet Operations Solution (FOS) system, which is essentially an online infrastructure designed to enable 360° ship-to-shore reporting and fleet performance management. FOS combines individual processes that are otherwise separated, to optimise voyage planning, weather routing and fuel consumption taking into consideration charter party compliance, speed management, as well as the hull, propeller and engine condition.
Wärtsilä Navi-Port facilitates the exchange of accurate arrival times between ports and ships, enabling vessels to automatically adjust speed to achieve just-in-time arrival. Dynamic, real-time data sharing improves co-ordination allowing for modifications to course and speed should conditions at port change during a voyage. For the ports, the Wärtsilä system enables better and more efficient planning of port and terminal operations, while reducing congestion and the risk of collisions.
