Tuesday, January 10, 2006
Transas (Transport Safety Systems) Scandinavia AB signed a deal with global shipping company Torm to fit 30 Simplified Data Recorders (S-VDR) complete with 20 Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) to their fleet. Torm, which deals with ocean transport for refined oil products, manages the largest Special Product Tanker fleet in the world. Last year this fleet, which consists entirely of double hulled vessels, carried over 30 million tonnes of gasoline, jet fuels, diesel and naphtha around the globe. In addition, Torm manages three tanker ‘pools’ which operate over 80 ships of which one third are owned directly by Torm. Projects between Transas, which offers products and services to assist mariners and their ships, and Torm began in 2002, when Transas installed its first Electronic Chart System onboard a Torm Gotland.
