Monjasa bunker data integrated into ZeroNorth platform

ZeroNorth and oil and shipping group Monjasa have announced a new data partnership to make Monjasa’s bunker market information available within Optimise, ZeroNorth’s vessel optimisation platform.

Optimise users will now be able to access Monjasa data on bunker prices and availability of the most common fuel grades at key ports around the world, including the current market price of the most commonly applied marine fuels, including Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO), Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (VLSFO) and Marine Gas Oil (MGO), in a variety of grades.

The partnership will also mean that Optimise will be able to access Monjasa’s view of fuel availability in a range of locations, from bunkering hubs such as Singapore, Rotterdam, Houston and Fujairah, to smaller or more regional trading ports. Monjasa operates as a physical supplier or trading partner in nearly 700 ports worldwide.

Optimise will interpret this data alongside a range of other information, both from users and from third parties, to make its recommendations on speed, route and when, where and what to bunker. The software provides an indication of the upsides of any decision in both dollars and CO2.

“It’s fantastic to be able to announce this partnership with Monjasa, which makes some of the industry’s best bunker market information available in our platform,” said Søren Meyer, CEO, ZeroNorth.

“The issue of having a clear view of the marine fuels market – and how this can impact your operations in a huge number of ways – is central to the ongoing challenge of vessel efficiency. That’s why this partnership will enable Optimise to make even stronger recommendations on route and speed, enabling tramp shipping operators to increase their revenue and cut emissions.”
