Veson Nautical opens Japanese subsidiary

Veson Nautical has opened a new permanent office in the Akasaka district of Tokyo, Japan, serving as a base of operations for Veson Nautical in Japan and housing dedicated commercial and professional services experts for the country.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Mr Tokio Mitsuda will lead the new office, having served previously as the president of Marcura Japan KK. Mr Mitsuda brings nearly 30 years of professional maritime experience to his role, the past 15 years of which has been focused on business development in Japan.

“Veson Nautical’s software and services fill a true need in Japan’s commercial maritime market,” stated Mr. Mitsuda. “I have seen the benefit this tool brings to our current clients in Japan, and I know many other companies can use the Veslink IMOS Platform to optimise their commercial maritime operations.”

“The Asia-Pacific region has always been important to Veson Nautical’s global operations, but it is a large area to cover out of one regional office,” said John Veson, founder & CEO of Veson Nautical. “This expansion to Japan will enable our team to engage deeply with existing clients and build new, long-term relationships with others in the Japanese maritime industry.”

“This this new office reflects our commitment to the Japanese market,” continued Mr Veson. “It allows us to increase our engagement with existing clients and establishes a base of resources to support continued growth in the region.”{/mprestriction}

  • EIZO secures LR type approval for maritime monitors

    As part of the European Union (EU) Recognised Organisation (RO) Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme, EIZO Corporation has been awarded type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its 19 and 25.5 inch maritime monitors for an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) with radar applications, the first European certificate for electrical equipment in Japan.

    The EU RO Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme covers type approval certification on selected components and equipment for which mutually agreed technical requirements have been developed and agreed by all stakeholders in the EU RO Group, ensuring consistency for different types of equipment.

    EIZO’s current line of DuraVision ECDIS monitors (FD2603W, FDU2603WT, FDS1904, FDS1904T) were issued the certificate. These monitors are built specifically for harsh maritime conditions and are calibrated at EIZO’s own factory to meet the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. EIZO offers optional optical bonding for each model which is also produced in-house.

    Kazuhide Shimura, executive operating officer, EIZO Corporation commented: “Meeting requirements for major maritime classifications such as LR is extremely important in demonstrating that our products are proven for use in harsh environments. EU RO MR ensures that EIZO continues to provide a high degree of customer assurance to system integrators and end users in the maritime market, regardless of their location.”

    Fumio Kure, LR’s general manager in Japan said: “We are proud that LR was able to issue this certificate at this time as we had to rely on remote surveying capability for the approval as surveyor attendance was hindered by COVID-19 challenges. Congratulations to EIZO for obtaining EU RO MR Type Approval certificate in addition to LR class type approval.”
