Norcontrol IT to Supply Korean VTS

Friday, January 16, 2004
Norcontrol IT has been awarded the contract to supply a coastal surveillance system for monitoring the movements of vessels in the Jindo’s coastal sea area, on the west coast of Korea, outside of Mokpo. 10 VTS suppliers were involved in the bidding process with Norcontrol IT chosen as the preferred supplier for VTS and AIS solutions. The Jindo Coastal VTS system will be a premium VTS system and will include a number of subsystems such as a five radar site, meteorological system, 2 x VHF direction finders and a VHF communication system. Automatic Identifications System (AIS) will also be implemented with 2 x AIS base stations forming the shoreside network. In addition the sytem will utilise an advanced database for efficient storage and distribution of vessel traffic data. This contract is a result of close co-operation between Norcontrol IT and its Korean agent, Chang San IT. Chang San IT will handle the installation, testing and warranty of the new system. As a domestic supplier Chang San IT can secure an efficient and flexible support network for the customer during installation and throughout the system’s operational life. For ease of operation, the entire system will be in Korean language. Norcontrol IT has been involved in language translation for VTS systems since the 1990’s when the company provided language support for both French and Spanish VTS workstations. The company has alo translated its systems into Chinese. In addition, Norcontrol IT has implemented AIS into its VTMIS5060 for five ports in Korea: Busan, Incheon, Yesou & Gwangyang, Gunsan and Daesan. The VTMIS5060 systems in these ports have been operating for several years but the recently implemented AIS will increase the benefits from their VTMIS. Korean ports are concerned about maritime safety and efficiency. By working in close cooperation with Korean ports and authorities Norcontrol IT consistently addresses these concerns. The company will maintain its strong standing throughout the Korean peninsula as Chang San IT will continue market Norcontrol IT solutions within the Republic of Korea.
