German bulk carrier operator Oldendorff Carriers has agreed a contract with India-headquartered maritime technology company Blue Water to implement the BOSS Voyage Optimisation Suite on its cape and baby cape fleet of owned and time-chartered vessels.
The software package was selected following a trial and will be used to reduce emissions through intelligent voyage optimisation, weather routing, vessel performance analysis and efficient fleet management.
“After one year of successful trials, we chose the BOSS Suite for our cape and baby cape fleet since it met our needs for optimising voyage operations, whilst enabling us to see real-time CII analytics for the vessels in one platform,” said Capt Dexter Jeremiah, Managing Director Operations at Oldendorff.
“The level of customisation and development of advanced voyage monitoring tools in the BOSS ecosystem with a quick turnaround has been second to none.”
As a dry bulk owner and operator Oldendorff Carriers manages approximately 700 vessels working around the world, with approximately 100 of those of cape and baby cape size.
“Throughout the trials, we were presented with challenges to develop certain customised solutions for operational excellence and performance analysis, and the BOSS team turned them into opportunities to further showcase the platform’s customisability, scalability, and an eagerness to make significant changes to suit Oldendorff’s needs,” said Capt Kumaresh Gupta, Managing Director at BlueWater.
