Optimizer for WENDIS Viewer

Optimizes routes in WENDIS Viewer

Optimize voyages by analyzing planned routes against the forecast weather conditions to keep vessels on schedule. By re-routing to avoid poor weather conditions, ships can sail at a slower rate and use less fuel, while not exposing crews and vessels to potentially fatal weather conditions. Optimizer is available via our back of bridge tool and navigation solution, WENDIS Viewer.

Advantages of Optimizer for Viewer

Total route control

Add waypoints as needed and choose which parts of the voyage need optimizing - it is not necessary to optimize all legs, for example, ports and shallow waters.

Total visibility

You have total visibility of actual and predicted weather for accurate optimizing. Accurate weather data for seven days is available for forward planning.

Stay on schedule

Alternative routes can be suggested to avoid bad weather or reduce leg speeds.

Vessel schedule

Shows where the vessel is scheduled to be at the forecast time.

Vessel particulars

Vessel type and dimensions are used to vary leg speeds for the forecast weather conditions.

How it works

Optimizer analyzes a planned route against the weather forecast for the route. It suggests variations to the route and schedule to give the best route and voyage speeds. These variations optimize the voyage to keep the vessel on time and to schedule. It does this by planning a route in Viewer, adding weather data to the route and analyzing the two data sets, taking both route and weather dangers into account.

Collaboration of leading companies

Three leading companies in the maritime industry have collaborated to make Optimizer. A weather data service from Vento Maritime and a Route Optimizer from FORCE Technology are integrated into the WENDIS Viewer platform from Weilbach. Along with weather data, Optimizer is accessed via Viewer, our back of bridge tool. These three components allow routes and weather data to be used to get the best route possible.

Minimum System Requirements


Optimizer is accessed via WENDIS Viewer, our back of bridge tool. You will need to be a user of Viewer with WENDIS Weather activated.
