The technology group Wärtsilä has unveiled its new Navi-Planner voyage planning and optimisation solution at this year’s Nor-Shipping exhibition.
Developed by Transas, a Wärtsilä company, the new Navi-Planner makes use of the connected electronic chart display and information system. The new connectivity allows onboard voyage planning to be cut from 5 hours to 30 minutes, while also providing a minimum navigational safety standard for a less experienced crew.
The new Navi-Planner utilises one of the world’s largest navigational databases, as well as artificial intelligence to auto-create a route that is safe to sail. It calculates weather optimisation, supports hazard identification, creates a voyage plan, and provides at all times the latest charts and data automatically. In addition, it enables onshore fleet operators to remotely monitor their vessels in real-time, record navigational near misses, and support incident investigation and playback.
