Voyage Optimization System is a route optimization system developed by e-Marine in collaboration with HHI (Hyundai Heavy Industries). It’s one of the few solutions in marine industry to be considered a Marine Big Data solution.
Its purpose is to optimize a route in a manner such that optimization results in a more economical, and environment-friendly route than a basic route drawn by hand (mouse, trackball, or touch).
Why is it needed?
To Reduce Fuel usage, therefore reducing fuel cost-> fuel cost takes up nearly 40% of shipping cost
To reduce gas emission
To meet IMO-MEPC standard
How does it work?
VOS collects Planned Route, Navigation Data, Engine Operations Data, and Real-time Weather information. Then, using e-Marine’s patented algorithm, VOS recommends a route best optimized for economical and environment-friendly navigation.
All the more, voyage data is accumulated over time and collected from multiple sources. True potential lies within the fact that optimization becomes more precise and efficient when more data is present.
