ECDIS Kernel SDK, ENC Production Tools & ECS Software
Developing professional maritime chart display applications,
Digital nautical chart production, maintenance and management, and
Applications such as inland navigation, portable pilot units, and naval patrol boats.
SevenCs continues its highly practical training courses, intended to provide guidance for those who are concerned with the future production and supply of S-57 ENC data.
The latest course took place in the SevenCs Office in Hamburg. It was held especially for the Finland Hydrographic Office and was dedicated to the SevenCs ENC Tools: ENC Designer, ENC Manager, ENC Optimizer, and ENC Analyzer. During five days of coaching by two experienced SevenCs specialists, Violetta Blatz and Christina Ulrich, the participants from Finland could enhance their knowledge and aptitude in a series of progressive exercises. The general opinion of the Finnish HO professionals was that the SevenCs training is very comprehensive and provides considerable added value for their daily production routine.
Bjoern Roehlich, Sales Director of SevenCs, commented: “It was a great pleasure to host the training for the Finnish HO. After the successful capacity building project in Montenegro this was another nice example how easy the ENC Tools are to operate and how proficient our team can provide training.“
Last week, Frank Horch, Senator for Economy, has invited Jochen Rudolph for a round table discussion about funding programs in Hamburg at the SMM 2014.
Mr. Horch showed great interest in the SevenCs product range and took the opportunity to have a good look at the Chart Table displayed on the show. He was notably impressed after finding the marina where he keeps his sailing boat.
The partner of SevenCs in South America, Latincomp, has recently organized a public training course on CEACT navigation software. The training took place in Asunción, Paraguay, the center of the most important waterway in the South American continent.
CEACT (Channel ECDIS, AIS & Course Trajectory) is navigation software designed for professional towboats and workboat operations within the confined waterways of inland river systems. SevenCs has released a new 2.6.10 version of CEACT earlier this year.
The main shipping companies (Vale, Uabl, Horamar) signed up their crews to take part in the lessons. The interest of the companies was matched by the eagerness to learn the skippers showed during the training. More than 70 people followed the lessons and took actively part in the workshops held in between. The course was fully booked and new ones are already being scheduled.
Doubtlessly the introduction and training in CEACT, being the most widely used software for inland navigation, was a great success. Moreover, it became clear that more work and training in future will enable the users to take full advantage of all features CEACT offers and improve navigation safety and efficiency.
Sevencs, Latincomp and many local shipping companies are up to the challenge.
