Maersk Tankers Opts for Transas ECDIS
Maersk Tankers has selected Transas to implement ECDIS compliance program across its 75 strong fleet to meet the IMO requirement for ECDIS on board all tankers over 3,000 gross metric tonnes from July 1, 2015.
The agreement includes ECDIS installations for both retrofit and for newbuilt vessels for Maersk Tankers.
According to the agreement signed between Group Procurement in Maersk and Transas Marine, the vessels will be upgraded to the latest version of the Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS Multifunction Display in dual configuration, with official charts folio for paperless operation.
The installations have already started, and over the next months 68 Maersk Tankers’ retrofit vessels will be equipped with the Transas ECDIS, with further installations onboard newbuildings being delivered to Maersk Tankers from 2016.
