A new voyage optimisation solution was launched, using AI to improve fuel savings of at least 5%. The result was a collaboration between the University of Southampton, the Alan Turing Institute, and Theyr.
-VOS aims to improve time savings by 7%, and deliver Time Charter Equivalent improvements by 8%. The tool encourages integration multiple environmental and operational modules that exist within the industry.
Furthermore, T-VOS fully integrates with navigation safety parameters, including traffic separation schemes, ECA’s and other navigational restraints.
A truly remarkable achievement of collaboration between industry and academia. We create voyages and operations that are safe and efficient, whilst substantially reducing the vessel’s carbon footprint
Peter Mantel, chief commercial officer at Theyr said.
Furthermore, Adam Sobey, associate professor at Southampton University, added that this is a “fundamental research into evolutionary computation” that can help tackle climate change with immediate effect.
