DMI and Weilbach in new collaboration
The Danish supplier of nautical charts and publications for more than 250 years – Weilbach - has entered into a contract with DMI, The Danish Meteorological Institute. This has resulted in a new digital product, WENDIS Weather, which provides the world’s merchant navy with precise and updated weather data
With a professional partner such as DMI, Weilbach wants to set new weather data standards for the maritime industry.
‘DMI is the leading player when it comes to predicting and monitoring weather and weather-related conditions. This is crucial for both the planning and execution of shipping routes and waterways world-wide’, says Weilbach Head of Sales Jens Nissen.
Carsten Kofoed, DMI’s Service Coordinator for Sea and Offshore services, confirms the positive collaboration:
“We are very pleased to be able to bring our detailed data into play with Weilbach. WENDIS Weather combines global forecast data, projections on tropical storms and satellite imagery of ice limits with Weilbach’s precise nautical charts”.
WENDIS Weather is available in a full version with all weather data and two smaller versions, ‘WENDIS Weather – Ice’ and ‘WENDIS Weather – Tropical Cyclones’. WENDIS Weather joins the other digital solutions that Weilbach delivers to the maritime industry: Planner, Logbook, Pays, Medical and Viewer.
