Maersk Tokyo and Toba Order Admiral ECS

Tuesday, May 08, 2007
Costamare Shipping CO S.A., ordered four additional Admiral ECS for its Maersk Tokyo, Maersk Toba and 2 other vessels. This is the second time Costamare has purchased the Admiral system for its ships. In December 2006 the company ordered three for the MSC Sicily, MSC Tuscany and Sophia Britannia. Admiral ECS (Electronic Chart System) is installed in 140 vessels globally, ranging from 300,000 ton supertankers to 515 foot superyachts. More user friendly than most ECDIS installations, Admiral uses plain English menus rather than icons for its user interface. For this reason, some ECDIS equipped vessels also have an Admiral installed. The C-MAP vector chart database, using the Real Time Update Service (RTU), is updated automatically by the Admiral software. For large areas C-MAP charts cost substantially less than Official ENC’s.

Because Admiral displays own ship to scale and actually can take into account the location on board of the GPS antenna, it is particularly useful for berthing in low visibility subject to the accuracy of the chart and provided the system connected to DGPS. Another major time saver for busy Deck Officers is Admiral’s “Route Finder” which plots instantly any global voyage, from berth to berth, through waterways such as the Panama Canal and the Great Lakes, even placing waypoints on the correct side of traffic separation schemes, depending on the direction of travel.
