Dataloy + s-Insight | Bunker
s-Insight | Bunker (previously BunkerPlanner) is a bunker procurement optimization tool under StormGeo’s s-Insight. It brings the power of advanced analytics to the maritime bunkering segment.
s-Insight | Bunker is a state-of-the-art bunker procurement optimization tool. It enables vessel operators and bunker buyers to optimize their fuel purchasing strategy on a vessel-by-vessel basis, reducing fuel bills by tens-of-thousands of dollars per voyage. s-Insight | Bunker generates a detailed recommendation on how much bunker to buy and where to buy it.
Our recommendations are based on a comprehensive set of commercial and operational considerations, including fuel prices, each vessel’s commercial schedule, speed, fuel consumption, product specifications, time spent in Emission Control Areas (ECAs), sailing margins, scrubber equipment, and tank sizes, as well as costs related to deviations, port calls, and barging.

Why s-Insight|Bunker + Dataloy
Integration overview and focus area
Bunkers typically represent upwards of 50% of a vessel’s operating costs. Deriving the best bunker procurement strategy is a very complex process. One must consider fuel prices, port calling costs, tank sizes, commercial schedule, fuel consumption rates, commingling issues, ECAs, and sailing margins, among others. In many shipping organisations, this complexity is aggravated by the fact that different departments hold different pieces of the puzzle.
The bunker purchasing desk will have a good view of fuel prices but perhaps does not understand the vessel schedule’s flexibility or the vessel’s consumption pattern. The operations desk understands the schedule well but knows far less about fuel prices and availability. The vessel master understands the current RoB and consumption rate better than anyone on shore, but may not have a detailed view of the commercial requirements of a voyage.
s-Insight | Bunker cuts through this complexity by bringing all the relevant information into a single platform where all stakeholders can discuss and align. It leverages advanced algorithms and data analytics to identify the best bunkering plans and recommends the optimal location, volumes, and grades to be lifted for each voyage.
s-Insight | Bunker empowers operators and fuel purchasers to generate additional value for your fleet by crafting superior bunker procurement plans.
How it works
s-Insight | Bunker is integrated into Dataloy’s voyage management system via an API, from where it acquires vessel data, such as tank capacities, fuel consumption curves, schedules, and much more. During daily operation, s-Insight | Bunker obtains the commercial and operational voyage details, including port calls, ETA, ETD, last position, Rob’s, redelivery amounts, and much more.
s-Insight | Bunker includes all operational costs and bunker prices. s-Insight | Bunker uses AI and calculates ten thousand models and shows the 10 best recommendations per vessel, which then are available in s-Insight | Bunker, where customers can access and explore more individual solutions, create new drafts, and more.
