Transas CEO Frank Coles presents THESIS Transas CEO Frank Coles presents THESIS

Transas has launched a new navigation and ship operations concept called THESIS – Transas Harmonised Eco System of Integrated Solutions – which aims to create a common platform for collaboration between ships on navigation and operational issues.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new platform was announced at the company’s recent Simulation User Conference in Singapore by CEO Frank Coles.

“Ship, ship operations office, training facilities around the world, and a properly created ship traffic control environment can all be connected to the ecosystem, effectively a community that is able to talk to one another. This is THESIS,” said Mr Coles.

Mr Coles believes that ship operations are being bogged down by too many regulations and excessive data management requirements, and that the traditional hierarchy of ship roles has become outdated.

This attitude must change, he argues, and should also be accompanied by adjustments in training requirements to focus on cross discipline operations. THESIS is seen as part of this change of approach, with the aim of creating a single common platform for the exchange of navigational and operational information.

“In order to have a successful transition to the new reality, we should consider how to train the new team, the Fleet Resource Team, empower the master but also provide training on working together,” Mr Coles said.

“The law should not control the management of the ship, but fit with everyday practice in operations. Day to day fleet resource training should replace some of the bridge resource training. The Fleet Management ecosystem will reduce the administrative load on the ship.”

“THESIS is a flexible data resource, a scalable platform. The flexibility allows for data to be shared or kept private. The user can adopt all or only one part of the eco environment. In creating these solutions Transas will unite the global maritime stakeholders in the future of e-Navigation and operations.”{/mprestriction}
