Transas to install ECDIS on over 100 Maersk Line vessels

MARCH 30, 2015 — Transas Marine has received a contract from Maersk Line for ECDIS implementation on more than 100 vessels. Each ship's existing system will be upgraded to the latest version of the Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS Multifunction Display with two ECDIS stations plus a back-up.

The installations are planned to start this summer.

The order follows a contract between Transas Marine and Maersk Tankers for the upgrade of 71 vessels and installations on several newbuilds, and marks 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,"says Jens Pfeiffer, Transas Marine’s Navigation Business Division Director.
