ECDIS Ltd have taken delivery of six ECPINS® terminals, which have been installed in their e-Navigation Centre. The WECDIS systems are made by Offshore Systems Ltd. (OSL), an OSI Geospatial Company, and will be used to deliver both generic IMO 1.27 ECDIS training and ECDIS Ltd’s 5 day WECDIS course.
Mark Broster, Managing Director of ECDIS Ltd says, “The OSL ECPINS product is regarded by many as being at the forefront of commercial and military ECDIS performance. The ECPINS system provides a comprehensive and capable navigation aid that can really add safety to a vessel if used correctly. We are therefore very excited to be able to showcase their product in our e-Navigation centre in Southampton. It will not sit idle however, as we will utilise the systems to deliver generic IMO 1.27 model ECDIS and bespoke WECDIS courses to a growing military market, therefore adding another string to our bow.”
Bryan Price, OSL’s Customer Support Manager, adds, “We have been utilising ECDIS Ltd’s expertise for some time now to deliver our WECDIS training solution to military customers worldwide. In addition to their Royal Navy specialist navigator background, the advantages of ECDIS Ltd are their flexibility in course delivery and an ability to bespoke courses to suit a military audience. In essence, we can now combine a world leading WECDIS product with world leading training to provide the ultimate solution.”
