Transas: Approval for Radio Communication Survey and APT

Press Release
Monday, February 11, 2013

Transas Marine has received RINA and Lloyds Register approvals to perform Radio Communication equipment survey and VDR/SVDR Annual Performance Testing.


The RINA certification authorizes Transas service engineers to perform inspections of vessels' Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) communication equipment and annual performance test of Voyage Data Recorders (VDR/SVDR).
 

The renewed Lloyds Register "Approval of Service Supplier" includes survey, performance testing and maintenance of Radio Communications equipment, AIS, LRIT and SSAS; and annual performance testing of VDR/SVDR.
With these approvals, Transas Marine can offer combined VDR APT and Radio Survey, which will result in cost and time saving.
 

Under the international Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention, cargo ships more than 300 gross tonnage must be equipped with a minimum suite of radio equipment to communicate with Rescue Coordination Centers. Reliable communications system is critical for safety of life of the crew and passengers onboard. Regular inspections of the GMDSS installations are required under the SOLAS regulations.
