Dutch AIS contract for Saab

Saab has received an order from the Dutch authority Rijkswaterstaat for the delivery of AIS (automatic identification system) services.

Saab will provide the system as part of the DIAMONIS project (Dutch Inland AIS Monitoring System), in partnership with local company Tein Telecom, which will be responsible for implementation and support.

The contract includes the delivery of approximately 40 AIS base stations, a network solution and a web-based presentation system, and is is valued at over SEK 20 million (approximately US$3 million).

This also includes a number of future options, such as a possible expansion of the system.

The implementation of the DIAMONIS project will take place over 18 months.

"Saab is a market leader within the AIS domain and the system will increase safety significantly throughout the extensive Dutch inland waterways," said Lars Bergholtz, managing director for Saab TransponderTech AB.

"Rijkswaterstaat is a highly competent authority that has produced a detailed specification for the project, meaning that our well-established system solution will be enhanced even further in terms of functionality and performance."

    The Halifax Port Authority has awarded Saab a contract to supply a Port Management Information System (PMIS). The system will streamline port operations, allowing port departments, 80 service providers, customers and other members of the port community to further improve their collaboration.

    The Port of Halifax is a full-service, deep water port on the eastern seaboard of Canada and the only east coast Canadian port that can receive Ultra Class Container Vessels carrying over 10,000 TEU’s. The Port is of great economic significance to Canada, connecting Halifax to 150 countries.

    “The contract for the Port of Halifax further strengthens our position in the port management market, not only in North America, but worldwide,” said Tomas Hjelmberg, head of Saab's Maritime Traffic Management Department. “The Port has a grand technology innovation plan and we are proud to have been chosen as their visionary partner. Our cooperation with the Port will significantly boost our product innovation.”

    The PMIS automates the planning and execution of a wide variety of port operations, from everything related to vessel visits such as resources and services, to complex multi-dimensional client contracts. An important aspect is the resulting accurate billing of services rendered. 

    “We are a data driven port. We expect the PMIS to be the single source of information that will transform our business. It will make operations transparent to all members in the port community in real time. It will also make it much easier to measure performance,” said Captain Allan Gray, president and CEO of the Halifax Port Authority. “We decided to work with  Saab because of their track record. They have the best mix of functionality, cost and proven results in the market.”

    The PMIS will be delivered by Saab’s Port Management in Vancouver, along with a multi-year support contract and is scheduled for completion in Q4 of 2021.
