The crisis management consultancy says that MarTrack is now the only fully integrated fleet and risk management solution on the market, providing positioning data using the vessels’ Automatic Identification System (AIS) signal, Sat C communications or other mobile tracking devices.
MarTrack WebView presents an electronic S57 maritime chart with live vessel tracking data, the latest piracy alerts, maritime security and weather information. It includes a risk assessment and voyage planning tool, combining vessel details, risk tolerance criteria and location-specific mitigation measures with weather, sea state and recent piracy incident information along any pre-selected route.
The system is underpinned by NYA’s Operations Centre which provides 24/7 monitoring and support.
“The addition of SSAS services comes following feedback from organisations that were looking for a single, consolidated system,” said NYA’s managing director Alex Kemp.
“MarTrack provides this, doing away with the need for multiple systems and supplier contracts and giving organisations everything they need in one place. This means time and system efficiencies and could offer significant cost savings too.”
“Maritime security remains tops of the agenda for operators. As the situation has calmed down in East Africa, it has escalated in West Africa - and it’s a very different challenge. The good news is that the tools available to help monitor and manage the risk are evolving and becoming more sophisticated. MarTrack is leading the way in this innovation.”
“We've also developed an enhanced voyage risk assessment and voyage-planning tool, which combines vessel details, risk tolerance criteria and location specific mitigation measures with weather, sea state and recent piracy incident information along any pre-selected route. This creates a customised, voyage-specific report that helps inform decision-making and provides an electronic audit trail. In addition, real time piracy incident alerts, backed up by support from our 24/7 Operations Centre, help ships to pro-actively route away from threats at sea and in port.”
