Maritime software provider Veson Nautical has added Scandinavian bunker data platform BunkerMetric to its Partner Network, a partnership that will see BunkerMetric’s bunker procurement optimisation tool BunkerPlanner natively integrated with the Veson IMOS Platform (VIP).
Joint clients of the systems will be able to link relevant voyage itinerary and activity reporting data from VIP directly into BunkerPlanner, which can then perform analyses within the context of a vessel voyage to help improve yields through bunker optimisation.
This is done by combining data such as charterparty agreements, vessel specifics, positions, routes, ETA, tank capacity, bunker prices, port details, and sailing distances to make recommendations for the optimal fuel quantity, ideal ports, dates, and type of fuel to lift at each location.
An embedded Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) calculator within BunkerPlanner is also available to help operators monitor emissions and fleet performance.
“We are very pleased to collaborate with Veson as a Platform Partner. BunkerPlanner and VIP can together streamline workflows and uncover impactful new efficiencies and cost savings for mutual clients,” said Kris Kosmala, Chief Commercial Officer, BunkerMetric.
“Our use cases indicate that by optimising the fuel procurement process, the potential operational savings for an organisation can reach tens of thousands of dollars per voyage.”
Veson has already expanded its bunker data analysis capabilities with the recent acquisition of software company Ocenbolt.
