Marine electronics specialist Maris AS has completed an ECDIS (electronic chart data information systems) technical training program to enhance support services covering North America and the Caribbean. The initiative is part of its commitment to the global distribution and service agreement with IMTECH Marine.

Engineers in IMTECH Marine’s service network covering U.S. and Caribbean ports have been trained and certified by MARIS to install, commission and support the MARIS ECDIS900-series. IMTECH Marine centers in New York, Jacksonville, Miami, Houston, Long Beach, Seattle, Point Lisas (Trinidad & Tobago) and Curacao now offer enhanced expertise in Maris ECDIS to customers calling at U.S. East Coast, Gulf Coast, West Coast and Caribbean regional ports.

The program, undertaken at IMTECH Marine’s Houston facilities, certifies support staff to service all vessels operating in U.S. and Caribbean waters. Current Maris clients making regular regional calls include tanker majors Torm and Stolt Tankers.

IMTECH Marine recently bought Maris spares and back-up equipment to enhance availability throughout its U.S. and Caribbean network.

The MARIS support service training initiative has been spearheaded by Mr. Hansen, who took on the role as part of his new brief as Maris Director Special Projects last year, having formerly acted as Maris Sales Director.
