Vaisala and Unikie: Improving port safety and performance with hyperlocal weather insights
When: Wednesday, December 8th, 2021
Time: 16.00 (Finnish time, EET)
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 Beacon™ 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 the webinar, organized by Vaisala in collaboration with Unikie, to hear more about how to optimize your port operations using this unique combination of two of the industry’s most powerful solutions.
Webinar topics and takeaways:
- Explore how to simply and accurately measure key weather parameters for the entire port area: wind direction and speed, air pressure and humidity, temperature, and rainfall.
- See the real-time weather insights available through the Unikie Port Activity App for desktop and mobile.
- Learn how the solution combines hyperlocal weather insights with other operational information to provide outstanding recommendations and warnings.
- Plan your port infrastructure development more intelligently to address changing climate conditions and extreme weather impacts.
Who should attend:
Port and terminal operators, port authorities, harbour masters, and other stakeholders interested in improving port-area safety, compliance, or performance.
