XShip Performance, leading vessel performance and analytics platform is gearing up to upgrade its flagship application, The Voyage Calculator.
Voyage calculator is the application that can predict the fuel consumption and power needs of a particular vessel for the combination of any draft, speed or environmental conditions. XShip released the more advanced version of voyage calculator that can estimate the total fuel consumption for any future voyage, considering the accurate weather forecast data for the route.
Integration of actual weather data on the voyage calculator increases its efficiency and dependability of the ship owners and managers to the application for planning and operations of the vessel. The consumption is calculated from the performance analysis curves of the vessel and weather forecast information is provided by the IBM Weather company.
