Epic Gas Ship Management signs with GNS

GNS has completed the roll-out of a range of digital navigation systems and products to the fleet of Singapore-based Epic Gas Ship Management, following the award of a new contract.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The deal was agreed following a competitive tender during which Epic Gas ran sea and shore-based trials over a six-month period, evaluating solutions from three vendors. The service ranges from route planning and monitoring through to the transfer of ENCs to ECDIS for voyage execution.

GNS will provide digital charts and publications, paper products and navigational software tools to Epic’s fleet of 38 gas tankers as part of the contract. The deal also includes GNS’ new GPS overlay, providing real time vessel positioning back of bridge, and its V-Drive tool for transferring ENCs and updates to ECDIS.

In addition, the Voyager FLEET INSIGHT software system is also part of the contract, the GNS online service for ship managers providing fleet analytics as well as office-based tools to help manage the safety and compliance of the fleet.

“The most important thing for us is safe transportation of our cargoes globally. We wanted a solution that would really enhance bridge operations and support our crews in improving safety and efficiency onboard,” said Capt. Martin Brzuska, head of group marine assurance, DPA at Epic Gas.

“Crew feedback on the GNS solution during our trials was exceptional across all areas, in particular ease of use and simplicity, as well as the sophistication of the tools provided. GNS’s Voyager solution has become a great tool for us.”{/mprestriction}
