United States Coast Guard Approve Adveto ECDIS 4000


United States Coastguard Certificate of Approval for the ADVETO ECDIS-4000
The United States Coast Guard has certified that Adveto´s new ECDIS-4000 meets the requirements of all relevant regulations and standards for use onboard SOLAS vessels and High Speed Crafts.

ECDIS-4000 was certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) earlier this year.

In addition to all the mandatory requirements the Certificate of Approval also covers a number of unique hard- and software functionalities and features such as:

– ECDIS Security Internet Gate (ESIG) allowing the ECDIS to be connected to internet for both online ordering and download of charts from PRIMAR.

– Control Unit for remote quick, safe and easy selection of navigation functions.

“We are proud to have received the United States Coast Guard Certificate of Approval for our ECDIS-4000 with its special features” says Mr. Kent Sylvén, Managing Director of ADVETO. “Since the United States is the third largest shipping nation in terms of number of ships it is important for us to have this approval. The USA is also one of the most densely populated Fast Ferry regions in the world and with the IMO mandate to use type approved ECDIS we expect to see a continues growth of our ECDIS-4000 users also in the USA”.

“The special features offered in our ECDIS-4000 such as the ESIG and the Control Unit combined with the ease of use is highly appreciated onboard” says Mr. Sylvén. “The ESIG allows connection to Internet and, easily order and download the needed charts directly from and into the ECDIS. With this tool you buy and pay only for the charts you need and you will always have the latest versions.”

“The Control Unit can be mounted on the armrest of a bridge chair and used for remote quick, safe and easy selection of navigation functions. A tool that has been highly appreciated, especially by the High Speed Craft operators.”
