Success For Transas VTS In Taiwan

Monday, October 08, 2001
Transas Marine Pacific in cooperation with its Taiwanese agent, Seven Seas Electronic, has won an order for another Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) system in Taiwan. This order follows the first installation of a Navi-Traffic solution in the Port of Keelung in 1997.

The tender was called, during the summer 2001, by Ho-Ping, which is a private port on the northeast coast of the country. Port construction works are nearing completion and the new port facilities will commence operating in early 2002.

The VTS system in Ho-Ping will be the Navi-Harbour 3000 incorporating S- and X-band radars, a double-screen operator workstation, synchronous multi-channel audio recorder PC and a customized VTS database server. The Transas Navi-Harbour is a commercial-off-the-shelf solution for vessel traffic monitoring in small and mid-size ports. Navi-Harbour 3000 is an autonomous system providing the operator with full control over the radar antenna and transceiver including radar processing and presentation. The Transas VTS products feature sensor integration flexibility and can be interfaced with various brand radar sensors and transponder systems including UAIS. This approach allows the cost of integrating original Transas software and equipment with user-selected network facilities, to be minimized.
