Norwegian maritime electronics specialist MARIS and Japanese high-tech firm Cornes & Co., Ltd. say they have won their first contract to deliver ECDIS equipment for the entire vessel fleet controlled by an unspecified Tokyo-based ship management company.

The order will see MARIS ECDIS900 delivered for 20 bulk carriers, including 12 newbuilds, while installation onboard further bulk carriers is under consideration. Each vessel will be installed with two The MARIS ECDIS900 units.  

The partnership between MARIS and Cornes is a global distribution and license agreement through which the Japanese hi-tech trading company offers MARIS solutions covering ECDIS, chart management, radar overlay, weather management, voyage planning and routing software.

The agreement includes provision for new modules, developments, enhancements, upgrades, additions, amendments or modifications to the MARIS products licensed. MARIS and Cornes are in discussions to broaden the scope of collaboration to deliver enhanced support services.
