Furuno becomes fourth ECDIS supplier for Sea Traffic Management project

ECDIS manufacturer Furuno will provide 43 ships with Sea Traffic Management-compatible on board systems, becoming the fourth ECDIS supplier supporting the project along with Transas, Wärtsilä SAM Electronics and Adveto.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Furuno is striving to be among the first with new technology and solutions. We recognise the long-term benefits of STM in the form of higher security and safety, increased efficiency and a good impact on the environment,” said Tero Airissalo, sales and marketing manager at Furuno.

“But STM is also beneficial in the near future. In the current test, customers using our system will save a lot of fuel through better optimised routes and better timing of the port call arrival.”

The EU-backed Sea Traffic Management project has initiated a test bed to examine how a range of maritime technology services would operate in the context of an open connected traffic management system, including route optimisation, enhanced monitoring, port call synchronisation, and ship-to-ship route exchange.

The STM test beds expects to include 300 ships, 13 ports and several shore centres.{/mprestriction}
