Product of the Week: Voyage Planning Station
31 August 2017
ECDIS has brought a lot of ease to bridge navigation, but the good old paper chart also has its advantages. Especially when planning a voyage, a full overview comes in handy. RH Marine’s Voyage Planning Station is the ideal tool to optimise your planning process.
A non-ECDIS trained crew member can plan today's journey and activities based on the owner’s or operator’s wishes. Crew members do not have to follow the procedures for ECDIS navigation; The Voyage Planning Station is solely used for planning purposes.
The voyage plan can be transferred to the ECDIS with the click of a button, where a trained officer can transform the plan into a safe sailing route. When combined with a complete Rhodium Bridge, it is possible to transfer the proposed route to the autopilot for automated sailing.
