Imtech Gain Contracts & Launch Global Vessel Tracking Center

Press Release
Sunday, December 02, 2012

In addition to recent €82-million orders for marine services and maintenance, Imtech establishes a Global Control Center for ship tracking.

René van der Bruggen, CEO Imtech says; 'In the marine market, Imtech is working towards strategic growth in its services and maintenance activities and a strong expansion of the number of services branches along important shipping routes. Imtech now has the most extensive global service network in the marine market. These services branches focused previously on navigation and communications technology, but now offer Imtech's entire marine services package, leading to cross-selling and further growth. The new orders are good evidence of this. A new development is following vessels remotely, 24/7. This offers Imtech numerous new possibilities.'

Imtech's Global Control Centre is able to follow vessels remotely, 24/7. This competence centre, manned from Rotterdam, Houston (USA) and Singapore, can follow shipping movements globally and enables Imtech to provide actual 24/7 services in all time zones across the world.

Imtech say that ship owners and shipping companies are making increasing use of the new ship tracking facility which enables exploitation as well as making business intelligence and data management possible; it is a new development in this market with interesting growth perspectives. The digital platform offers customers the ability to access vessel data while vessels are underway. In the future plans are being made to make it possible to exchange this data with vessel movement data in ports, in which sector Imtech is also a strong player.

The number of Imtech's services branches has expanded considerably in 2012 including the opening of branches in Brazil, Spain, Scotland, Belgium, the USA (there are now 17 service branches there), China and along the west coast of Africa (including Nigeria, Angola, Ghana, Congo, Gabon and Kenya).
