Børge Hetland, CCO at NAVTOR, with Andrè Tarberg, Purchase Manager at Havila Shipping ASA
Exactly eight years ago today e-Navigation specialist NAVTOR signed its first customer, launching the concept of Pay As You Sail (PAYS) ENC subscription to the global marketplace. The customer was Havila Shipping ASA and the vessel PAYS set sail with, the Havila Clipper, is still using the same solution to this day. However, it’s no longer alone on the voyage
“We’re just about to hit a very significant milestone,” remarks company CCO Børge Hetland, “with almost 6000 vessels now subscribing to NAVTOR’s innovative e-Navigation solutions. It’s been an exciting journey,” he adds, “and the Havila Clipper marked the first step on the way.”
NAVTOR, a global leader in advanced e-Navigation services, has partnered with Japan’s “K” Line RoRo Bulk Ship Management Co. Ltd (KRBS), the “K”LINE Group, to develop a digital manoeuvring assistant, enabling safer, more accurate and optimally efficient vessel operations. Now the new Manoeuvring Assistant module will be available on NAVTOR’s digital planning tool NavStation (from version 5.2).
Tor Svanes, the founder and CEO of e-Navigation specialist NAVTOR, has been honoured for his role in enabling the development of ‘smarter shipping’ within the maritime industry.
