Sailing weekend with Arved Fuchs

On the weekend of the July 8th and 9th, the Weatherdock team had the immense pleasure of sailing for one entire day with Arved Fuchs, aboard of the famous expedition ship DAGMAR AAEN.

We departed from Flensburg. The sea was very quiet and the sun was shining. We could see Denmark on one side, Germany on the other side.

We also had the opportunity to test our new devices! What a better place than the sea?

A couple of weeks ago we told you about our partnership with Arved Fuchs. He is a world famous ice hiker, sailor and polar explorer and he owns this incredible ship built in 1931.

We are delighted to have been able to share such a moment with him.

Weatherdock – Further win of German Quality in an Asian Country for fishing fleet tracking

Nuremberg, Februar 27, 2017

The German Weatherdock AG was awarded a further time with a big order by an important Asian Government for supplying a fleet tracking and monitoring system.

By using the Weatherdock’s vmsTRACK system mounted on the fishing vessels, the local Department of Fishery is able to continuously track and observe all small and bigger non-coastal fishing vessels in their EEZ and beyond in offshore areas. With such a high level proofed system the Government does the next important step to work against illegal, unreported and unlicensed fishing (IUU).

Reliable, proofed
and certified quality

The vmsTRACK system was tested hard and intensive by the Department of Fishery and finally convinced with best performance figures such as transmission range and reliability. The devices are transmitting continuously in a pre-set time interval to bring up a real-time-image of the area to headquarter.

„After awarding Weatherdock for the first batch of tracking units for the coastal fishing vessels we tested a lot, very hard, very intensive to make sure that these German position transmitter are full compliant to given standards to be the best solution for our country and our needs before awarding Weatherdock the second time with the next batch for the non-coastal fishing vessels” the customer said.

Safety of Fishermen included

Every vmsTRACK unit mounted on a vessel has got an additional “push to alert” button that triggers a standardized AIS SART emergency message which can be received by every vessel or coastal station in the vicinity to help immediately with the rescue.
“For us it is very important that the customer is totally convinced about the product and he has a good feeling with his decision. Delivering reliable technologies on the highest possible level which follow the existing rules and fit the given specification is the goal we want to achieve.” says Alfred Kotouczek-Zeise, CEO and Speaker of the Board of Weatherdock.

The delivery will be finished by April 2017.
