MARIS Supplies ECDIS to Hong Kong Police

Press Release
Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Maritime Information Systems AS, Norway (MARIS), a recognised Electronic Navigation specialist, has secured its first contract from the Hong Kong Marine Police. After an official tendering process, the company has been selected to supply 12 ECDIS Systems on board 12 existing patrol boats operating in waters around Hong Kong.

 
MARIS worked with its agent Elekon Electrical Company to make several presentations to the HKMP Department and was selected after meeting all technical requirements.
 
MARIS will provide its latest ECDIS Systems based on its 10th Generation Smartline MK-10 ECDIS 900 Systems with advanced features and latest hardware, including the Intel Core-2 DUO processor, solid state drives, etc. The systems will replace a combination of existing ECDIS and paper charts currently used by the HKMPD.
 
Elekon Company , a company based in Hong Kong and founded in 1972, will undertake installation work, which is due completion before the end of 2011.
 
MARIS sees this as major strategic advance in Asia, following hard on the heels of the company’s securing of a tender to supply 32 ECDIS Systems to Indian Coast Guard vessels earlier in 2011. “This latest contract is a particularly significant endorsement of MARIS ECDIS technology, given that the initial tender was limited to Electronic Chart Services only,” says Bhupesh Gandhi, Director Asia Pacific, MARIS Asia.
 
The MK-10 ECDIS 900 is compliant with the latest IEC 61174:2008 standard and its ENC/ARCS can be readily updated via e-mail or the Internet. It offers online ordering of electronic charts, integral computer-based training for training of crew, as well as advanced passage planning, radar overlay, AIS, a Duplex link between AIS and ECDIS, total tide intelligence, weather forecast display, Navtex interface, access to the Lloyds Fairplay data base, and optional weather routing and conning displays.
