Transas to Install ECDIS on Over 100 Maersk Line Vessels
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.”
