Vestfold University, MARIS Enter ECDIS Training Agreement

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

Vestfold University College (HiVe) and MARIS have entered a co-operation agreement covering MARIS ECDIS900 product specific training. The co-operation will see HiVe offering tailor made, product specific hands-on training for the MARIS ECDIS, covering electronic charts and updates.
Line Øverland, MARIS Business Development Manager says: “The MARIS ECDIS and client application is a comprehensive software package providing innovative updates and management of ship folios.The increased use of official Electronical Nautical Charts (ENC) onboard vessels and the implementation of paperless navigation requires deck officers to be confident and familiar with the functionality of the software and the limits to their use of ECDIS.”
The agreement will establish closer co-operation on research. HiVe will run product specific training courses on state of the art equipment, deploying its extensive in-house Maritime competence. HiVe offers a full range of research and development capability. At any given time, approximately 50 persons are involved in Ph.D projects.
Duy-Tho Do, Dean of HiVe’s Faculty of Technology and Maritime Sciences, says:  “This is a strategic and valued agreement. It shows the Board's commitment to support the government's ‘steady course’ initiative, and specifically its exhortation that "Norway should be a world-leading maritime nation. The Norwegian maritime industry is to deliver the most innovative and environmentally friendly solutions for the future.”
