Ultranav group company Cape Tankers has agreed a deal to implement the BOSS Voyage Optimisation Suite from Indian software developer BlueWater Trade Winds across its Panamax and Aframax fleet.
Cape Tankers was incorporated in 1995 and has managed all commercial and operational activities for Panamax International (PI) since 2005. The fleet is managed from offices in Miami, USA.
The BOSS software package will be used to support Cape Tankers’ overall decarbonisation strategy, which includes energy efficiency, intelligent voyage optimisation, efficient fleet management, weather routing, and vessel performance analysis.
“Choosing BOSS Suite for our fleet was a natural choice since during the trials, we observed a positive influence of BOSS modus operandi on our voyage operations,” said Capt Ruben Araos, General Manager Operations, Cape Tankers.
“The level of customisation and development of advance vessel monitoring tools in BOSS has been impressive. Further, the system is loaded with features such as vessel performance analytics and CII ratings, which helped us know the why and how of our fleet’s efficiency.”
