Maritime data analytics firm ioCurrents has partnered with Rose Point, a provider of navigation systems for ships operating in US inland waterways, to provide mariners with new options for voyage planning and navigation.
The agreement will see ioCurrents’ data analytics on fuel consumption combined with Rose Point’s marine navigation software, providing an overview of how the vessel can navigate more safely and cost effectively.
ioCurrents’ data analytics platform, MarineInsight, offers decision support based on live data outputs. The company uses AI and machine based learning to analyse data and output real-time recommendations.
Under the new deal, with every subscription to MarineInsight, ioCurrents will help supplement the additional subscription to Rose Point’s Fleet Services to allow users to access both services at a reduced overall cost.
“Forming a partnership with Rose Point will help US mariners make efficiency savings in their journey planning and optimise their fuel consumption,” said Jon Best, Director of Business Development for ioCurrents.
“In effect they will be getting situational awareness with Rose Point’s excellent uncluttered navigation displays and controls coupled with ioCurrents up to the minute live fuel burns and fuel flow data, which will not only help them make decisions to reduce fuel consumption but will also reduce emissions and have a positive impact on their bottom line.”
