Transas Marine Launches Pay-As-You-Sail Solution

Press Release
Thursday, March 15, 2012

Transas Marine has launched its ‘Pay-As-You-Sail’chart solution for (S)ENC. Transas received approval for the ‘Pa-As-You-Sail’ service by 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 a  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, where the necessary PAYS permissions have been obtained without additional cost.

With the new solution, recording and reporting of charts used is done with extraction from the TransasNavi-Sailor4000 ECDIS logbook. Vessels only pay for charts actually used for navigation monitoring. In other words, only charts which have been displayed on the screen together with ship’s position or generated navigational alarms. In principle, this is “best scale charts only.”

“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,” said Anders Rydlinger, Transas Marine Navigation Product Development Director.  “Transas Pay-As-You-Sail’ service complies with UKHO requirements. Besides the vessel’s internet connection, no extra communication equipment or tracking service is needed.
