Weather intelligence firm StormGeo has opened a new office in Copenhagen, Denmark to better support shipping companies in the region.

StormGeo said the company is not new to Denmark, as the company has supported customers there for many years in offshore wind.

“Danish shipping companies are usually very technology driven and put a lot of resources into processes and systems to reduce bunker consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. StormGeo is well suited to solve these challenges, in addition of course to safeguarding the crew, ship and cargo,” commented Carsten Mortensen, Chairman of the board of StormGeo.

Kim Sorensen, COO shipping division, StormGeo, said: “The decision to expand into Denmark was a logical move in our growth strategy. We are experiencing a growing demand in Denmark for integrated shipping solutions such as StormGeo’s s-Suite and having local people with shipping expertise is a natural step forward.”

The s-Suite is an innovative software and services suite integrating voyage planning, route optimisation, route advisory and fleet performance management. The s-Suite delivers cost efficiencies by optimising time, fuel and vessel performance while ensuring navigational and environmental compliance on a single platform.

To-date, StormGeo provides more than 12,000 ships with voyage planning, onboard route optimisation, route advisory and fleet performance management products and services.

At present, the company has 23 offices worldwide, including eight 24/7 global operations centers.
