Half of ships now ECDIS ready

Over half of ships trading internationally are ECDIS ready, according to the latest figures published by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO), with 62 per cent of existing cargo ships over 50,000 gt already fitted ahead of their 1 July 2016 deadline.

Kongsberg Maritime, working with the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO), has added AIO (Admiralty Information Overlay) functionality to its latest K-Bridge ECDIS and K-Nav ECDIS software, to make additional chart information available to the mariner when using its ECDIS models.

The UKHO has claimed that, based on its data, 54 per cent of tankers are now equipped to comply with the 1 July 2015 ECDIS mandate – however, this leaves more than 4,000 tankers that are not yet using an ENC service as the deadline approaches.
