CASPAR Chooses PC Maritime`s ECDIS Systems for Its Fleet
Baku, Aug 18 (AzerTAc) CASPAR Shipping, the Azerbaijan State Caspian Shipping Company has agreed a deal with PC Maritime to supply ECDIS to its fleet.
The agreement is for the initial supply of systems to 13 vessels, with the option of a second order at the end of 2012.
PC Maritime`s Navmaster ECDIS 800 is one of the longest-established ECDIS systems on the market. The software has a track record going back to the early nineties with feedback from many navigators incorporated into its development. Now in a mature version 7, Navmaster ECDIS offers various hardware options to suit different bridge layouts: a slim-line processor incorporating a solid state hard drive can be fitted horizontally or vertically, and monitor sizes range from 19” to 24” widescreen. An external break-out box gathers all NMEA signal in/out ports into one convenient unit.
This substantial retro-fit deal was achieved by Marine Technics, PC Maritime`s representative in Azerbaijan, and includes the provision of Jeppesen`s SENC-format electronic charts and installation of the ECDIS systems onboard.
ECDIS type-specific training will be provided by PC Maritime`s training and certification program supplied on DVD. Navmaster ECDIS has been type-approved by the Azerbaijan Maritime Administration.
