(Press Release)
Monday, February 11, 2013

Transas Middle East installed and commissioned Standalone AIS Solution at the Port of Aqaba, Jordan within the EU-funded SafeMed II Project.


The primary purpose of the project is to provide a comprehensive picture of the maritime traffic to all interested parties, which will help to forecast dangers and risks related to the marine pollution.


Transas standalone AIS solution incorporates the latest VTS technology and meets all international standards. At the core of the system is Transas AIS Base station T214, designed specifically for coastal surveillance, vessel traffic monitoring and ports management.
Intended to cover Aqaba Port, its inner port waters, navigational channels and fairways, this effective solution will significantly contribute to the prevention of marine pollution, improvement of safety navigation and overall security of the port.


In addition, Transas supplied and commissioned AIS VTS Server, WEB server and related hardware equipment to the Jordan Maritime Authority financed by the EU-funded SafeMed II regional project. This project is implemented in the Mediterranean region by the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for the Mediterranean Sea (REMPEC) on behalf of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
The Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for the Mediterranean Sea is based in Malta and assists the Mediterranean coastal States in ratifying, transposing, implementing and enforcing international maritime conventions related to the prevention of and response to marine pollution from ships.
