Classification society and weather specialist join forces

Weather routeing service provider, StormGEO, and classification society DNV GL are to combine their fleet performance functionality in a new ship performance management tool.

The tie-up will mean that a combined fleet of more than 12,000 ships will receive daily information on ship routeing, weather intelligence, navigation and fleet performance.
Under the agreement, DNV GL’s Eco Insight and Navigator Insight will be combined with Bergen-based StormGEO’s FleetDDS and ship reporting service. The Norwegian company will manage the new set-up.  
The entities claim that the agreement will result in the creation of the largest vessel performance service available in shipping and will provide a basis for improved decision making for clients who will also be able to share data through the classification society’s industry platform, Veracity.
The deal is expected to close before the end of March.
