Transas unveils e-navigation technologies at SMM 2014

(HAMBURG, Germany) — Transas Marine has introduced new software solutions for voyage planning and fleet management at SMM 2014 as a step toward becoming the forerunner in the development of e-navigation technologies.

Among new launches is Transas Navi-Planner 4000 on a Touchscreen display. The Navi-Planner 4000 Touchscreen offers a new and unique way of voyage planning on a 46 inch multi-touch display. The large display makes the voyage planning easier due to the extensive overview and easily accessible layers of information. Navi-Planner combines ENC’s, weather data, digital publications, Notices to Mariners, piracy updates, fuel monitoring and much more to help you optimize your port-to-port voyage, and all this with just a touch of your finger.

Transas has also brought its world-renowned FleetView Online fleet tracking service to a new level, which now offers extensive functionality to its users through one interface. The new and improved FleetView Online now includes online chart and data management, fuel efficiency monitoring, piracy information overlay, in addition to fleet tracking and ship security functionalities already available to the users.

Among new developments is also route exchange where the monitored route in ECDIS is sent to and displayed by the Transas FleetView Online service to shore fleet managers. This is just a start; in the future more information will be automatically exchanged between ship and shore giving ship operator the full picture of vessels’ performance and how they proceed along the route, with all information combined in one online portal bridging the gap between vital ship and shore operations.

Jens Pfeiffer, Transas Marine’s Navigation division director, comments: “It is time to move from conceptual view of e-navigation to a practical execution phase. The release of the Transas recently launched T-Bridge and new software tools for voyage planning and fleet management is an important milestone toward that."
