The system in question, the Navi-Sailor 3000 ECDIS-I, includes tools for passage planning and weather routing, and allows users to customise the system to include multiple operational modes with charts in up to seven different formats.
Approximately 20 different navigational data sensors and information systems can be connected including gyro, log, two ARPAs, AIS, echo sounder and autopilot.
In addition to the ECDIS systems supplied, comprehensive system training using Transas? simulation systems will also be provided.
Transas commented that this is one of its largest orders for ECDIS to date, but still ranks behind a contract for 160 dual ECDIS systems with World Chart folio from the world's largest shipowner, A.P. M?ller Maersk.
Signed in 2001, Transas says it believes this to be the single largest ECDIS order in the maritime industry.
