Jeppesen adds Malaysian ENC coverage

Jeppesen reports that it is now distributing official Electronic Navigation Charts (ENCs) for Malaysia, a recent addition to the company’s worldwide ENC portfolio.

Jeppesen will distribute the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) ENCs through its local partner Okenos.

Included in this newly available ENC coverage is the Strait of Malacca, the main channel between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The Strait of Malacca links the major Asian economies of India, China, Japan and South Korea and carries an estimated 25 per cent of all oil transported by sea.

“This is a significant development for Jeppesen, as well as for our shipping clientele around the world,” said Michael Bergmann, Jeppesen maritime industry director for affairs and services.

“We want to express our gratitude to the Malaysia Hydrographic Office and our local partner Okenos for working closely with us on this important partnership.”

In related news, Jeppesen has also recently signed a direct ENC distribution agreement with the Korea Oceanographic and Hydrographic Association (KOHA), further expanding coverage in Asia.

“This agreement with KOHA is further evidence of our commitment to bring maritime customers the ENC coverage they need, with affordable, flexible licensing options that make sense for today’s changing shipping industry,” added Mr Bergmann.
