Pioneering Spirit switches to ENCTrack (PAYS)

11 April 2019

Allseas is a global leader in offshore pipeline installation, heavy lift and subsea construction. Part of the fleet is the Pioneering Spirit, the largest construction vessel in the world. The vessel is designed for the single-lift installation and removal of large offshore platforms and the installation of record-weight pipelines. And we take pride in equipping this vessel with our ENCTrack solution.

For this special vessel, we supply several services, which include digital charts for the ECDIS system, digital publications/books and the automatic supply of certain paper publications. As of 11 March, the Pioneering Spirit has switched to our ENCtrack service, also known as ‘Pay As You Sail’.  When subscribing to the service, all available scale charts will be pre-installed for use directly on the ECDIS, allowing the crew complete flexibility in voyage planning. The system is safe, user friendly and efficient. ENCTrack will track the vessel in real time, immediately registering which ENCs are being used and when and only charge those ENCs that are actually used. To update the charts, Pioneering Spirit uses our online updating service. The combination of ENCtrack and online updating ensures that the crew has access to all charts and they can rest assured that they are always up to date. This saves valuable time for the bridge crew whilst maximizing safety and compliance!

If you are interested in our ENCtrack service, please visit our website for more information or contact us by phone of email.
