Sonne will carry the GNS Voyager Package 3, which includes route planning, inventory management and automatic updating of paper and digital charts, as well as ordering and cataloguing, and an AVCS and Admiralty Information Overlay (AIO) viewer.

“We see great operational advantages and cost savings from having our vessels carry the best paper and digital navigational software,” says Klaus Bergman from Briese Schiffahrt.

The ship was launched by German Chancellor Angela Merkel on 11 July 2014 and replaces a vessel of the same name, which was in service for 44 years.

“Voyager will provide Sonne with significant savings on time and cost and ensure the vessel avoids the compliance issues which are a growing everyday headache for ship managers,” says Bjorn Woge, managing director of HanseNautic, GNS’s Hamburg office.
