ProNav, the Norwegian distributor for Japan Radio Company Ltd. (JRC), was awarded a contract for supplying twenty two ECDIS systems to the entire fleet of Norwegian shipowner Misje Rederi AS.
All eleven dual-systems will be supplied and commissioned by Brommeland Elektronikk AS, a part of ProNav's professional sales- and service network.
Leasing program – Paperless sailing
The JRC ECDIS systems are supplied through a leasing program, and Misje Rederi is one of several other shipping companies finding this program as a good solution. Cost-wise it enables the possibilities to have the latest technology in the complete fleet at the same time, the company said, which again is beneficial in regards to type specific training, crew-changes, service etc.
The program consists of dual JRC JAN-2000 ECDIS including Hatteland Displays, UPS, JRC JLR-7500 GPS Navigator and JRC JLR-21 GPS Compass and GPS Navigator.
Type Specific Training
ProNav/JRC have approved Brommeland Elektronikk as an official JRC Type Specific Training Center. They can offer both IMO Generic and Type Specific Training in their own training facilities in Haugesund or on board vessels.
