Transas Marine in a partnership with AseSoft International won a contract to upgrade the Danube River Information System (RIS). The end user of the system is Romanian Naval Authority. The Danube system could be considered as one of the largest current RIS initiatives in Europe.
The Danube RIS mission is to provide safety of shipping along the river, ensure efficient planning of waterways and enhance the competitive edge of inland waterway transport in the supply chain.
The role of Transas in the project is to provide a modern Vessel Traffic Management System, AIS Network, radar processing, high performance CCTV traffic surveillance and VHF voice communication system.
Transas solution for the Danube RIS complies with all specific requirements for River Information Systems supporting Inland AIS and Inland ECDIS. It also meets the requirements of international Inland Navigation Standard for Vessel Tracking and Tracing.
Transas partner AseSoft International will act as a system integrator within the Romanian River Information Services project. AseSoft will update current hardware infrastructure and integrate system sensors such as AIS, VHF, CCTV, Radar and Weather Station. As a part of the project AseSoft will develop customised software applications which will ensure seamless integrated solution for Romanian RIS.
Project management of the Danube RIS project has been assigned to Asesoft International subsidiary and strategic partner – Teamnet International, who has an extensive expertise in IT systems integration.
Successful execution of the project will result in safer shipping environment and improved performance of Romanian inland waterway transport.
