MARIS, Seagull ink New ECDIS Contract

Maritime Information Systems AS (MARIS) has signed an important agreement with Seagull AS covering cooperation on product specific ECDIS training at Seagull’s shore-based training center in Norway.

The agreement  between the two Norwegian maritime industry specialists marks the latest initiative by MARIS to develop a standard training package by assimilating information on leading training  centres and approaching those in the ECDIS training business to offer cooperation and market MARIS’ products and services.

“Our strategy is to identify crucial safety and environmental issues facing the hazardous cargo sector and develop and publish recommended criteria that will serve as benchmarks for the industry,” said Steinar Gundersen, Deputy Chief Executive (Corporate), MARIS AS. For MARIS the training is not only ECDIS but also related services like MARIS Digital Services (MDS).”

MDS presents a single real-time view to the mariner, shore-based managers and suppliers across a wide range of maritime Information. MDS Manager uses standard off-the-shelf hardware and is the master programme for several sub-modules. Satellite costs are kept to a minimum by taking only the minimum amount of data needed on a passage and this data can be downloaded and updated at any time. Data sent from the MDS servers is encrypted and super compressed, the user chooses the method of delivery and a log is kept within each module.
