Transas Marine has signed contracts with the Bulgarian Ports Infrastructure Company (BPI Co) for the implementation of two significant Vessel Traffic System projects in Bulgaria.

The first project involves completion of the second phase of the Bulgarian River Information Services project (BulRISII). Under this contract Transas will supply and install a Vessel Traffic Management Information System compliant with all European standards and technical requirements for the River Information Services.

The system will ensure real-time data exchange between the River Information sites located along the Danube River and the main RIS centre in Ruse. It will facilitate management of inland waterway transport and streamline related logistics processes, thereby contributing to a more efficient utilization of the inland waterways. The project will run for the next 18 months and is scheduled for completion during 2015.

The second project includes implementation of the National Vessel Traffic Management and Information System (VTMIS) project – Phase III. According to the contract, Transas will upgrade existing Bulgarian VTMIS and extend its coverage area and functionalities. Transas will install Radar, AIS, CCTV, RDF, VHF and GMDSS subsystems which will be integrated in a single maritime information system. The phase III of the National VTMIS project is included in priority axes IV of the Operational Program “Transport" – “Improvement of the maritime and inland-waterways navigation”. The part of the system has been constructed during the first and the second phases and is already functional.
