Arista Shipping is beginning 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. Advanced ABS data processing is applied to over a decade of Metocean Hindcast model data from the US 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.

Antonis Trakakis, Arista Shipping Technical Manager, said: “Digital solutions can truly enhance the efficiency of operations. Historic data of wind and sea condition is an indispensable input for an accurate follow up of fleet performance. ABS has been selected for the provision of this service on the grounds that it can offer a broader cooperation and support for the evaluation and the safe handling of the data from on board the ships, and ultimately to become a partner towards a smart ship in the near future.”
