Shipping company GC Rieber has signed a fleet-wide agreement with NAVTOR for the supply of navigation services, data and publications, spanning both paper and digital deliveries, across its seismic and offshore ships.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The agreement covers the delivery of all digital and paper charts and publications, provided on a Pay As You Sail (PAYS) basis, alongside other products and services including weather and route optimisation, and the NavTracker navigational management system.

Also part of the roll-out will be NAVTOR’s NavBox units, which connect with ECDIS equipment and automatically download navigational data without navigators having to check for updates.

GC Rieber operates a fleet of nine vessels, and the installation of all products and services is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.

“As a shipowner and operator we are focused on maximising both efficiency and the quality of our operations – something that all our customers and stakeholders benefit from. The NAVTOR solution fits perfectly within that framework, uniting all vessels with a single solution that pays real dividends,” said Geir Rasmussen, marine superintendent, GC Rieber.

“NAVTOR is established, stable and high quality in its deliverables, so we feel confident consolidating all our navigation needs with them. What’s more the team is innovative – constantly striving for new solutions and the means to deliver added value.”

“This continual process of improvement is important to us and we look forward to benefiting from, and contributing to, their further e-navigation developments.”{/mprestriction}
