Maersk Line, the world’s largest container company, selected Transas Marine for ECDIS implementation on more than 100 vessels . The contract features Transas state-of-the-art Navi-Sailor ECDIS 4000 in dual configuration plus a back-up station on each vessel.
According to the agreement signed between Maersk Line and Transas Marine, existing systems will be upgraded to the latest version of the Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS Multifunction Display with 2 ECDIS stations plus a back-up installed on each vessel, making all vessels ready for paperless operation. The installations are planned to start in summer of 2015.Image Credits: maerskline.com
The order comes right after a contract signed between Transas Marine and Maersk Tankers for the upgrade of 71 vessels and installations on several newbuilds, and symbolises a continuation of the strong relationships between the companies for almost two decades.
“We are extremely happy to intensify our cooperation with Maersk even further and thus proving to be a right partner providing the most advanced ECDIS solutions. This does not only require a state-of-the-art ECDIS itself, but also excellent engineering skills, comprehensive data services and after-sales support which are all critical issues when it comes to ECDIS implementation”, – comments Jens Pfeiffer, Transas Marine’s Navigation Business Division Director.
