ABS Wavesight, Meteomatics Present the Power of Elevated Weather Data


Published Apr 3, 2023 1:26 PM by ABS Wavesight

Empowering shipowners, operators and charterers with elevated weather data allows for rapid, more accurate access to insights about voyage and vessel performance. This level of weather data is critical to reducing carbon emissions – both in the short and long-term. But the industry can’t achieve such lofty regulations through data alone.

Given various challenges like siloed data sources and a lack of visualization for stakeholders, partnerships between data suppliers and digital software companies, like Meteomatics and ABS Wavesight, leverage each other’s capabilities to offer a combined solution of environmental and marine vessel data. In this 30-minute webinar at 9AM CDT on April 12, attendees will learn the following key takeaways:

• Our role as contributors to the global economy and the environment

• How to develop a system to scale down emissions

• The importance of weather data, fleet visualization and real-time insights

• About the ABS Wavesight and Meteomatics partnership
