BunkerEx, an online portal to support ship owners and operators in finding optimal bunker ports when planning voyages, has become the most recent addition to the Kognifai partner programme, making the system available to Vessel Insight users on the Kongsberg platform.
With Bunker Planner, operators enter a voyage into the system and are provided with data on distance, ETA, quantity required and the most cost-efficient bunker options on their selected route.
The system will be made available as a service for users of Kongsberg’s Vessel Insight maritime data infrastructure, used to capture and aggregate data from vessel fleets and make them available for use with applications within the ecosystem.
“We’re extremely excited to partner with Kongsberg to offer clients a way to quickly optimise their voyage plans and save significant amounts on bunker fuel,” said Ishaan Hemnani, Founder, BunkerEx.
“Collecting bunker prices, distances, calling costs and availabilities for every bunker port can be very time consuming, so showing chartering managers and operators results in just one click is exactly what Vessel Insight is about.”
