Jeppesen is expanding its support of the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue (NSSR) by providing fleetwide Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) at no cost, in collaboration with PRIMAR and the Norwegian Hydrographic Service (NHS).

NSSR boats and vessels have used Jeppesen digital charts with regular updates and supplementary data for the past 11 years, and have received information technology support from the company.

“We will not only back the ENCs with online digital updates, but we will also continue to expand our collaboration with the NSSR,” says Egil Aarstad, managing director and general manager at Jeppesen Marine.

Rikke Lind, secretary-general of the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue, says: “We have an excellent cooperation with Jeppesen. With a fleet involved in some 7,000 operations a year, we really need to have state-of-the-art equipment on board our vessels.”
