Webinar header image Improve situational awareness at port through hyperlocal and accurate weather insights”

Rapidly changing weather and wind conditions cause unexpected problems for ports, including grounding, ship collisions, and damage to port-area machinery. Climate change has made these risks the new normal.

Fortunately, it is now possible to integrate industry-leading hyperlocal port weather information from Vaisala BeaconTM Station with the real-time situational awareness provided by the Unikie Port Flow Optimization solution. Weather observations — together with other critical port operational information — are visible to all port actors through the Port Activity App. Whether on desktop or mobile, the application creates a powerful new decision-making tool for ports.

Join our webinar, to hear more about how to optimize your port operations using this unique combination of two of the industry’s most powerful solutions.
