Al Mouj Marina’s Pilot Project ‘AIS Tracking’ Boosts Safety


Muscat, 7 June 2016: Adding to its fast-growing array of world-class maritime services, Almouj Marina in partnership with Qnective recently installed a new Automatic Identification System (AIS) to boost traffic control, collision avoidance, and navigational safety at the Marina. The AIS control-station can view any AIS equipped vessel under coverage range and can display on a dedicated screen the vessel’s position in real time. The pilot project has been successfully installed and tested at the marina, and is presently fully operational on two vessels and one control station.

Almouj Marina is dedicated to not just improving its facilities but also adding value to the maritime industry in Oman. The installment of the AIS falls in line with this goal by delivering a major boost to safety and security and by adding value to every aspect of marina operations.
