Navios ShipManagement rolls out ECDIS update across 160 vessels

Navios ShipManagement, a member of Navios Group, has confirmed that it is the first shipping company to roll out SRH Marine SAIT’s Delta Platform with real-time ECDIS chart updates over Inmarsat’s FleetBroadband service.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Navios’ 160 tankers, bulkers, and container vessels will use the platform. The FleetBroadband APN will allow Navios to update ECDIS charts seamlessly and securely, on demand and without interrupting their primary bandwidth service. 

Chairman and CEO, Navios Group, Mrs. Angeliki Frangou stated:“The SRH Delta Platform will allow us to advance e-Navigation in our vessels and minimise associated risks through secure, direct LAN connectivity & higher reliability.

We have been performing beta tests of the application on two of our vessels, over a period of four months, with great success and we are now confident to proceed with the Installation of the solution into our 160 Tanker, Bulk and Container vessels”

John Laderos, chief executive, SRH Marine Electronics, said: “This is a straightforward and practical solution for owners seeking to accelerate their e-navigation strategies, allowing data transmission through Fleet Broadband connectivity that is already in position around the globe and proven on performance, coverage and reliability.”

Ronald Spithout, president, Inmarsat Maritime, commented: “We are delighted that Navios are the first user of this application and proves without doubt that FleetBroadband connectivity, which is available on close to 40,000 vessels, can help support shipping’s transition to digitalisation for mission-critical applications such as ECDIS, and is now a unique enabling platform for applications through the new dedicated bandwidth APN.”{/mprestriction}

  • EIZO secures LR type approval for maritime monitors

    As part of the European Union (EU) Recognised Organisation (RO) Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme, EIZO Corporation has been awarded type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its 19 and 25.5 inch maritime monitors for an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) with radar applications, the first European certificate for electrical equipment in Japan.

    The EU RO Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme covers type approval certification on selected components and equipment for which mutually agreed technical requirements have been developed and agreed by all stakeholders in the EU RO Group, ensuring consistency for different types of equipment.

    EIZO’s current line of DuraVision ECDIS monitors (FD2603W, FDU2603WT, FDS1904, FDS1904T) were issued the certificate. These monitors are built specifically for harsh maritime conditions and are calibrated at EIZO’s own factory to meet the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. EIZO offers optional optical bonding for each model which is also produced in-house.

    Kazuhide Shimura, executive operating officer, EIZO Corporation commented: “Meeting requirements for major maritime classifications such as LR is extremely important in demonstrating that our products are proven for use in harsh environments. EU RO MR ensures that EIZO continues to provide a high degree of customer assurance to system integrators and end users in the maritime market, regardless of their location.”

    Fumio Kure, LR’s general manager in Japan said: “We are proud that LR was able to issue this certificate at this time as we had to rely on remote surveying capability for the approval as surveyor attendance was hindered by COVID-19 challenges. Congratulations to EIZO for obtaining EU RO MR Type Approval certificate in addition to LR class type approval.”
