ChartWorld and JRC cooperate on information overlays

ChartWorld has announced a cooperation with JRC to add ChartWorld’s Information Overlay service, known as CIO+ onto JRC ECDIS.  

CIO+ is a data overlay shown in ECDIS as a user chart, loaded on top of Electronic Navigational Charts. CIO+ is a tool to help the bridge team with the task of developing and executing efficient voyage plans by automating the process of applying additional data in ECDIS by means of user chart objects.

“CIO+ is a great step forward to better and safer voyage planning. It makes a huge difference to crew efficiency and voyage plan accuracy and provides onshore teams with increased oversight of navigational planning and risk management,” said Oliver Schwarz, ChartWorld’s business development director.

“JRC’s support of the CIO+ service shows the strength of the software. It makes the information on their ECDIS better and gives them a competitive edge.”

CIO+ is currently available for JRC ECDIS 9201 for both Ver.01.20.026 released in April 2017 and Ver.01.30.012 released in August 2017.

T.Podkowinski, master of the MSC Ravenna, commented: “CIO+ Service provides all T&P notices. What is important, all updates are available almost online so the latest T&P are always available for selected route within +/- 100 Nm. Access to T&P for any selected route is very easy and very fast using ChartBrowser.”

CIO+ on the ECDIS provides for the automatic addition of the follow data:

  • Temporary and preliminary notices to mariners (T&P NtM) published by the UKHO and other local Hydrographic Offices.
  • NAVAREA navigational warnings. All active NAVAREA warnings along a planned route will be supplied and updated weekly in a CIO+ user chart overlay.

    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.”
