Heng Tong upgrades ECDIS

Heng Tong Fuels and Shipping, the Singapore-based subsidiary of Hong Kong’s Coastal Holdings, has installed SEALL ECDIS systems from GNS onboard two vessels, Coastal Jupiter and Coastal Neptune, replacing non-compliant legacy hardware to bring the ships in line with the updated ECDIS standards.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Heng Tong Shipping operates a fleet of six vessels. The new ECDIS units are compliant with the IEC 61174 standards, which came into force from September 2017.

“We evaluated a number of options and found the SEALL ECDIS offered the most user-friendly solution as well as the simplest, most cost-efficient installation. GNS had us up and running with the new systems onboard with just a few hours,” said Capt Liu Raoping, marine superintendent and DPA at Heng Tong.

The SEALL system includes a touchscreen tablet-style user interface, with an Intel Core i7 processor and a caching system to speed up ENC loading and display. The ECDIS automatically detects any sensors that it is connected to, including motion, positioning and heading devices, and automatically sets up monitoring functions like cross track.{/mprestriction}
