AIS system implemented in Jordan

Transas reports that it has successfully installed and commissioned a stand alone AIS solution at the Port of Aqaba, Jordan, as part of the EU-funded SafeMed II Project.

Intended to cover Aqaba Port, its inner port waters, navigational channels and fairways, the primary purpose of the project is to provide a comprehensive overview of maritime traffic to relevant parties, to help to forecast dangers and risks related to marine pollution.

Transas’ stand alone AIS solution incorporates VTS technology and the Transas AIS Base station T214 system designed for coastal surveillance, vessel traffic monitoring and ports management.

In addition, an AIS VTS Server, web server and related hardware equipment were supplied to the Jordan Maritime Authority, also financed by the EU SafeMed II regional project.

This project has been implemented in the Mediterranean region by the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for the Mediterranean Sea (REMPEC) on behalf of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

REMPEC is based in Malta and assists the Mediterranean coastal States in ratifying, transposing, implementing and enforcing international maritime conventions related to the prevention of, and response to, marine pollution from ships.
