Heavy weather is a major cause of delays and damage in the maritime industry. This costs time and money as well as adds risks to the crew in terms of injury or potential loss of life to the severity of the weather and the effects it has on the vessel.

Cyclones are intense areas of low pressure where the associated maximum winds can be more than 70 knots generating sea swells of great heights. If a ship runs into cyclones or navigates areas affected by these winds and swells, it can sustain a loss of lives, loss of cargo and even loss of the ship itself. Hence, ship officers should learn techniques and strategies to avoid cyclones at sea.

SPOS Seakeeping delivers tailored, vessel-specific routing advice and is the only established solution to offer both voyage performance and fully integrated onboard ship motion optimisation. Not only is SPOS Seakeeping the master of forecasted vessel response and resonances, but the add-on module also provides tools to help you make decisions in course changes (direction and speed insights) to safely escape motion occurrences.

Route planning and optimisation involve juggling safety, efficiency, navigation, costs, port rotation, ETAs, speed ranges and additional constraints, such as seakeeping. For ship captains, this is a complex challenge that requires the aid of a decision-supporting tool to give them confidence in their decisions and support execution. We developed SPOS (Ship Performance Optimisation System) to address these challenges.
