Transas Continues VTS Expansion

Friday, December 13, 2002
Transas recently received two orders from the Namibian Ports Authority (NAMPORT) for Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) systems to be installed in two Namibian ports, Walvis Bay and Luderitz. The contracts were concluded after a joint proposal from Transas and Marine Data Systems in South Africa. Following the NAMPORT’s requirements Transas will supply two independent port surveillance systems that allow consistently high tracking performance of vessels within the ports, port approaches, and the surrounding area up to 24 nautical miles. Essentially the systems must provide automatic target detection, full recording/data logging, and are designed to operate in severe environmental conditions including high temperatures and high wind. According to the agreement, the delivery set will include Transas Navi-Harbour 3000 monitoring systems, which will be supplied with Bridge Master E "X" Band radars with 8ft antenna, and will utilize the Transas Radar Processor Units to maximize system reliability and target tracking performance. The radars will provide the full vessel tracking, monitoring and navigational information available within a modern state-of-the-art VTS system and because of the unique modular configuration of Transas VTS products, the system design is flexible and can be easily upgraded in the future. Transas successfully installed its VTS systems, Navi-Harbour 3000, in three Moroccan ports, Jorf Lasfar, Mohammedia and Tangier.
