OMI Orders Vessel
OMI ordered one 37,000 dwt ice-class 1A product carrier to be built by Hyundai
Mipo Dockyard Co., Ltd., Ulsan, Korea.
The vessel is scheduled to be delivered in
June of 2005. Craig H. Stevenson, Jr.,
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said "we continue to grow our core busi- ness of double hull product carriers and
Suezmaxes; this is the fifth sister product carrier on order, three of which will com- mence five year time charters upon their deliveries in 2004. We maintain our opti- mistic outlook."
New GPS Navigator
Following the successful GP-80, a new GPS Navigator is launched by
Furuno named GP- 90. The new design builds on the same basic features and the known user-friendly key-layout of its predecessor, but is fully re-designed with a new Silver-grey 6-in.
LCD display and new hard- and software.
The new GP-90 GPS Navigator fully com- plies with the new GPS Performance
Standard IMO Res. MSC. 112(73) regula- tions and IEC 61108-1 ed. 2 for SOLAS carriage requirements on and after July 1, 2003. GP-90 is equipped with the new
RAIM feature (Receiver Autonomous
Integrity Monitor). With the RAIM func- tion enabled, the GPS receiver automati- cally diagnoses the state of satellite signals and judges the positioning accuracy according to user selected accuracy level.
WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation
System), consisting of 25 ground reference stations across the United States and its two geo-stationary satellites, can be received by GP-90 for navigation in US waters increasing accuracy to 3 meters at 95% of the time. For terrestrial DGPS cor- rection, the GP-90 can be supplied either with an optional internal DGPS beacon receiver board or being connected to
Furuno's external GR-80 Beacon Receiver.
