More UK Ports Realise the Benefits of Using OceanWise Software and Services

OceanWise showcased its Enterprise Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software and productivity tools and Port-Log Environmental Data Sharing and Publishing service at the United Kingdom Harbour Masters’ Autumn Seminar held at the Victory Services Club, in London on 23rd November. The event attracted over 150 delegates comprising Port Managers, Harbour Masters as well as industry partners from the dredging , instrumentation and legal professions.

The seminar programme included lively discussions on the implementation of the Port Marine Safety Code and how this has differed between large and small ports. In addition the importance of higher resolution data was highlighted for berthing ships, both in terms of knowing what is safe for mooring and getting real-time and planning information on hazards quickly to ships and pilots.

Our GIS software is increasingly being used by UK ports as they seek to drive operational efficiencies in activities such as dredging and licensing, hydrographic survey and environmental samples managing and recording. The increasing appetite to deliver real time environmental monitoring data feeds and port ENC’s as part of port pilotage operations means that shipping movements and port operations can be maximised by providing accurate up to date and even real-time data feeds to decision makers.
