Visakhapatnam Port to add new VTMIS

Visakhapatnam Port in India is to implement a new VTMIS (vessel traffic management information system) from Transas, scheduled to be fully operational by the end of 2015.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Visakhapatnam Port is located on the east coast of India between Chennai and Kolkata with three main harbours, and is currently undergoing a modernisation and expansion plan.

The VTMIS from Transas will be integrated with the Port Operation System (POS) and existing sensors including X-band radar, six CCTV cameras and an AIS Base station.

Two new VHF stations will be supplied, as well as a main VTS operator workstation equipped with three monitors to display marine traffic and video from CCTV cameras. A second operator display will be installed at the ERP unit.

Visakhapatnam Port has a handling capacity of 85 million tonnes, which is expected to increase to 125 million tonnes in the next three years following its expansion project.{/mprestriction}
