Maritime software major, Navis, has announced that it has been selected as a partner for liner operator, Yang Ming and ship owner and ship manager China Navigation and Eastern Pacific.

Through this partnership, Navis’ loading computers will be installed on 20 container vessel newbuildings, a third of the projected global TEU capacity of container vessels with delivery in 2019.

In addition to the basic container vessel module, MACS3, the industry standard for container vessels, has been ordered with additional integrated modules including Dangerous Goods (DG), SEALASH and TROP, emphasizing the segregation and stowage of dangerous goods in compliance with IMDG code.

Yang Ming Marine Transportation Corporation is currently ranked at number eight of Alphaliner’s top 100 container vessel liner operators and servicing a fleet of more than 100 container vessels.

The liner runs a newbuilding program at Taiwan-based CSBC Corporation shipyard comprising ten 2,800 TEU container vessels.

The newbuildings, with the hull number 1113-1122, will be delivered between January 2020 and February 2021, equipped with the loading computer.

MACS3 is currently the only loading computer on the market covering cargo-securing regulations from all major classification societies including American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), DNV GL and China Corporation Register Taiwan and Bureau Veritas (BV).

Singapore-based China Navigation, the deep-sea shipowner and operating unit of Swire Group, will implement its four 2,350 TEU container vessels and the four 2,750 TEU container vessels currently being built at Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard, China, with MACS3 loading computer.

Additionally, Singapore-based ship manager Eastern Pacific Shipping will install MACS3 loading computer on board of two 15,100 TEU container vessels currently under construction at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industry, South Korea.

Established in 1984, MACS3 has a cumulative vessel profile library of more than 5,000 vessel descriptions of various vessel types, amongst them container vessels, bulk carriers, multipurpose vessels, tanker vessels and passenger vessels.
