National Geographic Explorer Navigates Worldwide with Adveto - 06/01/2012
Expedition ship National Geographic Explorer will be, after an extensive test and evaluation programme, the first Adveto ECDIS-equipped vessel sailing on all waters around the world including the demanding waters of the Arctic and the Antarctic. This order is a significant example from the ongoing international upgrading programme to make ships compliant with the IMO resolution stating that "all passenger ships in international traffic and over 500 tons should be fitted with a type-approved ECDIS by latest 2014".
Distributor GPS Marinkonsult has contributed to securing the order. ECDIS-4000 from Adveto has features like multi routes, advanced predictors, alternative night presentation and download of PRIMAR charts and chart updates over the innternet directly into the ECDIS.
Kent Sylvén, managing director of ADVETO, says that the ship's global traffic makes the chart handling very important. The electronic order and download ECDIS solution will save time and money for the shipowner.
