NAVTOR integrates environmental regulations into voyage planning with Total Marine Solutions MOU
NAVTOR, a global leader in maritime e-navigation solutions, has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Florida-based Total Marine Solutions (TMS). The agreement will see the Norwegian headquartered firm integrate TMS’ Ocean Guardian product into the NavStation digital chart table, allowing users to gain a real-time overview of all relevant environmental rules and regulations.
Launched in 2017, Ocean Guardian has been tailored to simplify environmental compliance, providing searchable, on-demand data relating to international, national, regional and port regulations. This allows crews and fleet operations managers to make informed decisions on matters such as vessel discharges, while alarms and notifications alert those on board to relevant regulations (ensuring local compliance).
NavStation, which was released in 2014 as the world’s first ‘digital chart table’, already offers a range of services that are ‘layered’ on top of ENCs to provide the ultimate voyage planning tool. For example, dependent on the services selected by users, ENCs can be integrated with offerings such as weather routing, NavArea warnings (e.g. piracy updates), Passage Planning, all Admiralty Digital Publications, and more. This ensures all the information navigators need is at their fingertips – consolidated onto one easy to use platform.
NAVTOR launched in 2011 and has since gone on to build a worldwide customer base and network of offices - spanning Norway, Singapore, Japan, Sweden, Russia, the US, and the UK. The firm currently has products on-board more than 5000 vessels in the world fleet.
NAVTOR is a leading force in the provision of innovative e-Navigation solutions, and a total supplier of navigational products and services for the maritime sector.
