i4sea SIGNS UP AS INMARSAT FLEET DATA APPLICATION PROVIDER

Tuesday, March 10, 2020 

Brazilian company i4sea and Inmarsat, the world leader in global, mobile satellite communications, have signed an agreement for i4sea to join the growing group of certified application providers to provide a dedicated application for Inmarsat’s Fleet Data service.

Fleet Data collects data from onboard sensors, pre-processes that data, and uploads it to a central cloud-based database, equipped with a dashboard and an Application Programming Interface (API).

The partnership came as a result of the Bluetech Accelerator, a program created by the Portuguese Ministry of the Sea in 2019 to create an ecosystem of maritime innovation and business acceleration.  i4sea was one of 20 startups – and the only one from Latin America - selected to develop pilot projects with maritime market leaders including Inmarsat.

Headquartered in Salvador, Brazil and with offices in São Paulo, Shanghai and London, i4sea will provide a sea and weather forecasting application with up to seven days forecasting in advance through i4cast’s Atm Ocean tool.

“As a Certified Application Provider, we will be constantly developing new features to generate increasingly powerful tools for the maritime market,” said i4sea CEO Bruno Balbi. “Working with a company like Inmarsat is really a great deal for i4sea and this is the first smart system that integrates in a single platform, all the essential tools to support decision making regarding vessel’s manoeuvres and port terminal’s operations.”

Six integrated tools are offered and includes services such as ocean and weather hyperlocal forecasts, dynamic draft prediction, terminal efficiency analytics and analysis and prediction of siltation or erosion dynamics of the seabed.

“We are delighted to be working with such an innovative start-up such as i4Sea, a company we worked with as part of the Portuguese Bluetech accelerator programme earlier this year,” said Marco Cristoforo Camporeale, Head of Digital Solutions, Inmarsat Maritime. “
