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 two 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.

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 symbolizes 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,” comments Jens Pfeiffer, Transas Marine’s Navigation Business Division Director. “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.”
