Transas to appear at Shipbuilding Machinery & Maritime Technology International Trade Fair

Transas navigational bridge

(HAMBURG, GERMANY – JULY 30, 2008) — At SMM 2008 (Shipbuilding Machinery & Maritime Technology International Trade Fair), Transas will continue to demonstrate its ability as a provider of ‘total solutions’ to the maritime industry. Being a maritime company able to provide a full range of onboard, training and shore-based equipment & services, Transas will be communicating just how beneficial this can be for shipping companies. 

To reinforce this approach the stand will feature the company’s Integrated Navigation System (INS), a solution for both Shipyards and crew training. This high-quality, professional navigation product is designed to provide seafarers with significant advantages in onboard navigation, whilst an identical system can be used as a training tool enabling a simulated training environment to be as realistic as possible.

Professional Navigators demand quality and reliability and the Transas INS is no exception. It’s based on the world’s only DNV type-approved INS Class C Hyundai-Transas intelligent Bridge System.  Incorporating the company’s type-approved ECDIS, Radar and vector Conning applications and having been developed in close cooperation with seafarers and shipyards, Transas INS focuses heavily on user-friendly and intuitive functionality. As part of a continued product development program, Transas is constantly expanding its range of onboard systems to incorporate the increasing number of bridge functions and sensors needed to the INS such as gyro, echo sounder, autopilot, log and many others. The result of these advances is significant increases in efficiency and reductions in operating costs.

Recognizing that training has a significant role to play in today’s shipping industry, Transas will be displaying The Transas Full Mission Bridge Simulator operating as a fully functioning training tool. It allows training in a realistic and efficient environment and is developed in compliance with the DNV requirements for INS/IBS training. Today’s modern shipping companies realise that a key element of safety is the quality of personnel, training, operations and the ability to train in a variety of locations either at sea or ashore.

SMM is not only about demonstrating Transas’ products and services but also the combined knowledge and expertise of the Transas staff. As always we look forward to welcoming you to an informative and relaxed atmosphere onboard the Transas stand at SMM 2008.
