Port Of Jersey Modernises


The Port of Jersey has upgraded its control centre systems with the help of Frequentis; the updated operational and stand-by control centres, multiple remote radios, radars and automatic identification systems have all been completed and the agreement for live operations was signed in May, 2016.

The port has a 24 hour a day vessel traffic service (VTS) and global maritime distress and safety system (GMDSS) services.

Russell Mathew, Coastguard and VTS Manager at the Port of Jersey, said: “Frequentis continued to provide exceptional project management.

“With this fully integrated solution the company provided a product to meet all our specific requirements within a very tight schedule.” 

Compliant to the IALA V-128 standard, the first vessel traffic service in UK waters shows integration and an open interface, allowing it to interact with neighbouring coastguard services.

Khashayar Saravandi-Rad, Director Maritime at Frequentis, said: “As a company providing both solutions to our customers – vessel traffic service as a marine traffic monitoring system and air traffic control for aircrafts – they can benefit from our cross-industry expertise.

“The solution implemented enhances the coast guard operations with new features and is resilient, through the main and back-up control centres. It is ready for integrating future requirements like for example CCTV.”

Last year the Port of Ajaccio, Malta, teamed up with Transas to also modernise and create a vessel traffic surveillance system.
