Joining the system is simple and can be done so by either of the links on MAN B&W's web site, or by contacting their company representative at MAN B&W's service in Copenhagen. Developed by MAN B&W Diesel and TradeVision, the system is updated every five minutes to ensure that the latest information is always available.
