The carrier will install the BonVoyage system (BVS) onboard its fleet and utilise the s-Insight platform for on-the-spot weather insights and route optimisation.

s-Insight is a cloud-based web portal for commercial, technical, and environmental fleet performance management. It provides onboard and onshore validation of ship-to-shore data streams, providing G2 Ocean with a complete overview of its entire fleet, including timely data on vessel location, weather conditions, speed, and fuel consumption.

BVS, meanwhile, allows for route optimisation, voyage planning, and weather forecasting, to allow for optimal navigation. “We have installed the BVS onboard our vessels. This tool gives our crew high-quality and accurate weather maps at their fingertips – assisting the master and officers in making good routing decisions and safeguarding the vessel, crew, and cargo,” said Trond Aga Haug, fleet performance manager at G2 Ocean.
