ChartWorld “Pay as You Sail” Service Approved

(Press Release)
Tuesday, December 27, 2011

Following comprehensive trials, Det Norske Veritas (DNV) has approved ChartWorld GmbH’s “Pay as You Sail” (PAYS) service to PRIMAR RENC guidelines. The new service, which does not require any additional hardware onboard, makes use of the existing navigation and communications infrastructure that is already installed on most SOLAS vessels, combined with the established FleetTracker service from Jan Herberg Engineering, to meet PRIMAR tracking and reporting requirements for PAYS. The new service will be officially launched in the first quarter of the New Year.

Jürgen Kuternoga, General Director of ChartWorld International, said: “Most of the PAYS offerings launched so far rely on additional equipment to be installed onboard the customer’s vessel. Not only is this time consuming and expensive, but it also creates an ongoing maintenance and support issue.
At ChartWorld we believed that, with all the existing, redundant navigation and communication systems that the average SOLAS vessel already has onboard, it had to be possible for us to create a reliable service that took advantage of a vessel’s existing investment and capability. Working with our trial customer we were able to achieve our goal.” The new service will be officially launched in the first quarter of 2012. However, the service will be available on a request basis between now and its official launch.
