CMA CGM Marco Polo Fitted with Marinestar

July 29, 2013

Fugro Seastar AS announced that CMA CGM Marco Polo has been fitted with Marinestar maneuvering system to assist in berthing and navigation. The satellite aided navigation technology is based on composite GPS and GLONASS constellations and measures precise speeds at the bow and the stern together with quay distances to assist the vessel safely to the berth. 
The Marinestar system provides speed and heading information to a higher level of accuracy than conventional navigational aids such as doppler log and gyro compass. In addition to its navigation and berthing functions, Marinestar Maneuvering System is able to measure vessel trim fore and aft trim dynamically whilst underway at sea. In addition to the 16,000 TEU CMA CGM Marco Polo and the two sister vessels CMA CGM Jules Verne and CMA CGM Alexander Von Humboldt, the system is being installed on five other 13,800 TEU vessels in the CMA CGM fleet.
