Transas Marine’s Multi-Million VTMS Contract with PMTA

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

The VTMS contract between Transas and the PMTA to supply and install the national scale Coastal Surveillance System was signed on 14th October in Tripoli, Libya. The system will provide the total coverage of the whole Libyan coast, which is almost 2,000 km, from Tunisia to Egypt as well as cover areas of responsibility of the 15 main ports in Libya.

The project includes a combination of 15 Local VTS incorporated under management of two National Control Centres in Tripoli and Benghazi, which perform vessel traffic and coastal surveillance services. In addition, 8 remote sites will also form part of this solution.

Newly released Transas Navi-Harbour 4.3 software, will be used to ensure continuous surveillance of the territorial waters, safety of navigation, reduction of illegal immigration and protection of the marine environment. Significant qualitative improvements in Libyan ports’ operations, service and traffic management are on their way.

This infrasture will reinforce the implementation of port operations management with an aim to be in full compliance with Part B of the ISPS Code.
