Successful installation of AIS 2.0 (VDES) and Sternula MMS Proxy on the vessel in Togo!

AIS 2.0 (VDES) is a technology that ties the global maritime industry together. Over the coming weeks and months, we will be launching a number of projects under the “Worldwide AIS 2.0 Demo” program to demonstrate selected digital maritime services.

One of the most ambitious projects was just kicked off in collaboration with the Ministry of Maritime Economy, Fisheries and Coastal Protection – Republic of Togo, where an installation of a full VDES/MMS setup was completed on the MT BITU Atlantic vessel in Port Autonome de Lomé.

The Minister of Maritime and Fisheries, Kokou Edem Tengue and Sternula’s regional partner for Africa Dormene Donald Nunieh were both present to inspect the setup.
