 Maersk Line, the world's largest container company, has selected Transas Marine for ECDIS implementation on more than 100 vessels, Transas announced today. The contract features the Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS 4000 in dual configuration plus a back-up station on each vessel. 

According to the agreement signed between Maersk Line and Transas Marine, existing Electronic Chart Display & Information Systems will be upgraded to the latest version of the Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS Multifunction Display with two ECDIS stations, plus a back-up installed on each vessel, making all vessels ready for paperless operation. The installations are planned to start in summer of 2015.

The order comes right after a contract signed between Transas Marine and Maersk Tankers for the upgrade of 71 vessels and installations on several newbuilds, and symbolizes a continuation of the strong relationships  between the companies for almost two decades.
