StormGeo has agreed to acquire maritime chart specialist Nautisk from NHST Media Group for an undisclosed sum. “The combination allows StormGeo to be the first to integrate market-leading routing and weather services with state-of-the-art charts and publications solutions, StromGeo said.

 

“The acquisition of Nautisk is a natural complement to our existing solutions to the global shipping industry,” said Per-Olof Schroeder, CEO of StormGeo. “In recent years, Nautisk has developed state-of-the-art software for use in planning and navigation, while maintaining one of the industry’s best run operations for delivering paper charts and publications to vessels worldwide. The power of the combined StormGeo-Nautisk solution will directly benefit customers as we advance our vision as a premier shipping services player. We are proud to lead the industry in creating the first, fully-integrated navigational planning solution in the market.”

 

With a new, “all-in-one platform” StormGeo and Nautisk customers can optimize routing, obtain appropriate charts, and create a voyage plan without switching between disparate systems. “Integrating navigational information with weather intelligence and proprietary route optimization algorithms will enhance quality and offer significant usability and cost benefits to customers,” StormGeo added.

 

“The Nautisk team is excited about combining with such a trusted company within the shipping community and beyond,” said Nautisk CEO, Thomas Fjeld. “Our complementary offering means that together we can provide a solution that has no rival and will drive usability, provide richer functionality, and offer more value for our customers.” Fjeld will take on a position as Vice President Planning and Navigation within StormGeo post-acquisition.
