Arista Shipping starts the path to smart shipping operations with an ocean data agreement with ABS
Arista’s fleet and managed vessels will use processed data from the ABS Metocean Hindcast Data application to guide operational decision making, ABS said in its release.
Advanced ABS data processing is applied to over a decade of Metocean Hindcast model data from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to determine the wind speed, wind direction, wave height, wave period, and wave direction corresponding to a specified vessel’s route. This can be compared with a vessel’s operational tolerances to guide safer voyages.
ABS, a leading global provider of classification and technical advisory services to the marine and offshore industries, is committed to setting standards for safety and excellence in design and construction. Focused on safe and practical application of advanced technologies and digital solutions, ABS works with industry and clients to develop accurate and cost-effective compliance, optimized performance and operational efficiency for marine and offshore assets.
