October 2009 â€“ Germany. PRO NAUTAS GmbH and Transas Marine GmbH signed a major ECDIS contract. Transas has been one of main PRO NAUTAS’ suppliers since its inception. This long term association has now been strengthened with a contract to supply 86 electronic chart display and information systems (ECDIS), for installation onboard newbuilds and for retrofit during 2009/2010.
Leer (Germany)-based company PRO NAUTAS is a leading system integrator for marine electronics and has supplied bridge equipment to over 275 newbuild vessels during recent years. The company is prospering despite the global crisis in the shipping business, thanks to its swift reaction to the downturn in the markets.
Transas, which has recently introduced its 5th generation of ECDIS Navi-Sailor 4000, is not only the market leader but is also renowned for setting trends in innovative navigation technology. The latest version of Navi-Sailor ECDIS 4000 was successfully type-approved by Det Norske Veritas in January 2009. Today Transas confidently retains 30% of the world ECDIS market.
