In addition to this, Transas will upgrade the current VTS system in the Semarang port with a fully redundant AIS Base Station T214.
Transas Vessel Traffic Management Systems are already installed in more than 15 ports throughout the Indonesian archipelago including Jakarta, Surabaya, Semarang and Belawan. The new contracts have been awarded by the Directorate of Sea Transportation, a division of the Indonesian ministry of Transportation.
Transas says that the new VTS systems will be based on its Navi-Monitor solution developed for monitoring and surveillance purposes. The system will collect, assess and integrate data from various sensors to provide VTS operators with a real-time overview of the ship traffic within their responsibility area.
The scope of supply for each port includes the AIS Base Station T214, a VTS Database and Solid-State Radars for small targets detection.
Transas notes that the number of containers handled in Indonesian ports is expected to almost double by 2015.
