New Fleetweb Online Application Provides Sea-Crime Alerts

GAC-SMHI Weather Solutions, an alliance between the GAC Group and Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, has introduced a new feature of its Fleetweb online application to provide alerts about sea-crime attacks.

The upgrade issues rapid alerts with precise coordinates and incident details, so that operators can immediately inform ships of attacks in their vicinity. It also gives an accurate picture of the overall sea-crime threat at any given time, especially in high-risk waters, the group said. Fleetweb provides operators with map-based intelligence about the locations of vessels and the weather conditions they face. It employs filter systems to give users an overview of how their vessels are performing in terms of speed and fuel consumption. Bunker buyers can see on a daily basis what fuel volumes are required, and technical managers can better plan maintenance schedules, the alliance said. The new feature of Fleetweb is facilitated by GAC Protective Solutions, a partnership between the GAC Group and AKE, which specializes in protecting individuals and organizations in hostile and difficult environments.
