AIS network project in Papua New Guinea

AIS network project in Papua New Guinea

Vissim AS and partner M-NAV Solutions has been awarded the contract ‘Automatic Identification System (AIS) Coastal Network Extension and Base Station Installation’ which will expand Papua New Guinea’s existing AIS network and significantly enhance coverage. The contract is being implemented by the National Maritime Safety Authority (NMSA) of Papua New Guinea, under the Maritime and Waterways Safety Project, which is funded by the Asian Development Bank.

I’m very enthusiastic about the fact that Vissim’s solution has been chosen by NMSA and Asian Development Bank for this project, and I’m looking forward to getting started to deliver the project together with M-NAV solutions

says Per Arne Henæs, CEO of Vissim.

Vissim’s AIS solution was chosen due to its innovative design suitable for very remote sites. When the system is installed and delivered in 2020, it will enhance maritime safety and security in Papua New Guinea.
