The China Navigation Company (CNCo), a deep sea ship owning and operating arm of the Swire group, has inked a maintenance and remote monitoring agreement for 35 vessels with Radio Holland, a Dutch marine satellite and radio communications company.

CNCo’s newbuild, multipurpose vessels and bulk carriers are already provided with Radio Holland’s NavCom packages, and under this contract, the company will provide maintenance of this equipment on board the vessels.

This agreement follows a remote monitoring pilot project, according to Radio Holland.

“The maintenance agreement with Radio Holland has been designed to dovetail with the end of the warranty period for our newbuildings,” Martin Cresswell, Fleet Director, The China Navigation Co Pte, Ltd, said, adding that the deal incorporates remote monitoring, which could reduce service periods and increase operational safety.

“The vessels are placed under a Managed Service Agreement for an unlimited period. These ‘MSAs’ cover all service aspects of the vessel’s equipment and include remote monitoring and diagnostics,” David Watts, Radio Holland Commercial Director Asia, said.
