Transas Marine to Supply VTMS to the Port of Mombasa

Wednesday, July 18, 2007
On June 29, Transas Marine UK and Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) signed a contract for the supply, installation and commissioning of a VTMS system for the Port of Mombasa in Kenya. The VTMS system will be installed and officially handed to KPA in February 2008. The main operator control room will be located inside the Port of Mombasa’s brand new 70m high Port Control Tower, and additional equipment will be installed at Ras Serani Station, Likoni Sector Light, and KPA Headquarters.

At the time of contract signing, the preliminary scope of supply includes two high performance coastal surveillance radars, CCTV, Automatic Identification System (AIS) Base Stations, VHF & HF Base Stations, and other ancillary equipment. A number of additional optional items have been offered by Transas and some or all of this additional equipment could be requested by KPA. One of the major contributory factors that helped to secure the Mombasa VTMS contract for Transas was the inclusion of our latest Navi-Harbor software and the powerful ORS3 radar processor system as key parts of our proposal. Transas Navi-Harbor and ORS3 system are currently being used in more than 100 authorities, ports and harbors around the world.

All the hardware equipment to be supplied will be Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) and the software is from Transas’ tried and tested Navi-Monitor 3000 range, which is now being used by over 100 customers as diverse as navies and coastguard (inc the UK and US navies), local/national government agencies, and all types of small, medium and large statutory harbour authorities around the world. All Transas’ VTS and Marine Surveillance Systems comply with the IALA VTS Guidelines, the ISPS Code, all applicable IMO conventions, including SOLAS Chapter V, Regulation 8-2, and take full account of the Port Marine Safety Code.
