The environmental products and services firm Total Marine Solutions (TMS) and NAVTOR are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), allowing for the integration of Ocean Guardian's environmental rules into NAVTOR's voyage planning software.

It will also allow NAVTOR to offer Ocean Guardian's environmental planning tool as a stand-alone system, said a press release.

Developed by TMS, Ocean Guardian is a digital tool that provides shipboard operators with immediate access to environmental regulations around the world.

Ocean Guardian removes the guesswork from environmental compliance, providing operators with immediate and accurate information on environmental regulations pertaining to a specific location. Ocean Guardian easily integrates with existing onboard systems and operations, providing shipboard operators with immediate and up-to-date information on what can and cannot be discharged.

NAVTOR, a company based in Egersund, Norway, offers integrated voyage planning software to the marine industry through its e-NavStation, NavBox digital charts and publications, paper charts and publications, weather and weather routing, as well as NAVTOR ECDIS kernel SDK.

"We have stated since the launch of Ocean Guardian two years ago that we are focused on collaboration with others in the global maritime industry. The signing of this Memorandum of Understanding with NAVTOR is another big step in that direction," said Alexandra Anagnostis-Irons, President of Total Marine Solutions.

Added Tor Svanes, CEO of NAVTOR, "In searching for solutions to easily manage all of the regulations and requirements for environmental protection, we found that TMS has the most comprehensive set of global, national, regional and port regulations available. This will be integrated into NavStation, our award-winning passage planning software, which already integrates ENC charts with ADP, AENP, weather, digital publications, NAVAREAs and route planning - making it the ultimate tool for voyage planning."
