Transas Marine launches Pay As You Sail solution.

 

Transas Marine launches its 'Pay As You Sail' chart solution for (S)ENC. Transas received approval for the 'Pay As You Sail' service by UKHO, PRIMAR and IC-ENC after succesful sea trials and verification by Det Norske Veritas (DNV). Traditionally the navigator has to select and purchase charts prior to each voyage using what is commonly called pre-licensing method. With Transas PAYS solution the vessel will have a license and access to install, view and pre-plan using official (S)ENC's without additional cost.

 

What's unique with Transas "Pay As You Sail" solution is that recording and reporting of charts used is done with extraction from Transas Navi-Sailor 4000 ECDIS logbook. Vessels only pay for charts actually used for navigation monitoring. In other words, only charts that have been displayed on the screen together with ships position or generated navigational alarms. In principle, this is "best scale charts only", not all charts and scale bands under the keel.

 

Transas PAYS is a service for accessing chart licenses and corrections online together with the ECDIS. 'Pay As You Sail' communicates via Transas Gateway firewall for licensing, corrections and sending chart reports. Transas Gateway works via a secure online internet connection from the vessel's Navi-Sailor 4000 ECDIS to the Transas Chart Server. It also allows remote support and maintenance on the Transas ECDIS which increases safety onboard.

 

Anders Rydlinger, Transas Marine Navigation Product Development Director comments: "With the official Transas Admiralty Data Service (TADS) SENC-service developed in cooperation with the UKHO, Transas 'Pay As You Sail' gives the vessel access to the most cost and time efficient (S)ENC service on the market and the best (S)ENC coverage available for navigation and planning. Besides the vessel's internet connection, no extra communication equipment or tracking service is needed".
