Transas Earns ECDIS Type Approval

Wednesday, October 20, 1999
Transas Marine has become the first company in the world to receive type approval for its NAVI-SAILOR 2400 ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System). The news is considered significant achievement for the company, which has been at the forefront of ECDIS development since the IMO Resolution in 1995 that allowed ECDIS to be used as conventional ships bridge equipment. Type approval has been given by what many consider to be the most prestigious national authority, the BSH (Bundesamt fuer Seeschiffahrt und Hydrographie) in Germany. Transas has been working closely with the BSH to ensure that all requirements have been scrupulously checked for compliance with all international standards during the type approval procedure. The Transas Navi-Sailor 2400 ECDIS has already achieved type approval by the Russian Department of Maritime Transport and Russian Maritime Register of Shipping. Marine electronic advances such as ECDIS are expected to vastly improve the safety of navigation, reduce the accident rate, and improve the overall efficiency of ships operations.
