17th August 2016
BigOceanData and Alltek Technology Singapore have won a competitive open tender to supply AIS vessel monitoring services to a Singapore government organisation.
BigOceanData's web-based AIS vessel monitoring system and fleet management tools are now helping to track and report on up to 50 material container vessels at any one time that are inward bound to Singapore - the world's biggest bunker port.
According to BigOceanData, the tender selection process was "tough" with the client demanding a very high standard to meet its need for a modern, high-intensity ocean vessel monitoring operation with integrated mapping and charting information.
"The contract was finally won not only by meeting all the contractual and pricing requirements, but also because BigOceanData was able to demonstrate advanced features such as different ocean state conditions, good AIS coverage both terrestrial and satellite, a modern, user-friendly interface and good local support," said Sebastian Koh, Managing Director of Alltek Technology Singapore. The system is now fully operational following on-site user training for the agency's personnel delivered by BigOceanData personnel. Alltek is providing local support.
The government agency is operating the standard BigOceanData interface. Among the many other features of the system that are now assisting the agency with its high-intensity monitoring operation are the integration of mapping and charting information together with a range of port monitoring tools including 'vessels scheduled', 'vessels in port and departed' and 'vessel time in port' reports.
