Adveto will supply ECDIS-4000 devices to four Viking Line vessels. According to Kent Sylvén, managing director of Adveto, the company operates predominantly in the confined archipelagos between Sweden and Finland, which poses unique navigational challenges.
“We are proud to have Viking Line as a customer as they are very demanding,” he says.
“They have also a number of big passenger ferries and an ambitious safety programme. Viking Line also is very concerned regarding fuel-saving and has shown interest in our new ETAMAN option.”
The Adveto solution was chosen after a thorough investigation of the ECDIS market, according to Viking, and includes a range of features that align with the ferry operator’s needs.
“ECDIS-4000 from Adveto has features like multi routes, advanced predictors, the alternative night presentation and download of PRIMAR charts and chart updates over internet directly into the ECDIS,” says Börje Jansson, technical superintendent at Viking Line.
“Another important factor is that we found the ECDIS to be easy to use. All this makes the Adveto ECDIS an ideal system for us. The ECDIS from Adveto suits our needs and fits into our operation.”
