Telko in the media: Sjöfartstidningen

 

In the latest edition of the Swedish Sjöfartstidningen (sjofartstidningen.se) you can read about the TECDIS installation on Stena Vinga. Telko International AB has performed a complete rebuild of the front of bridge systems. A dual TECDIS installation together with Furuno Radars is now installed on the bridge.

Stena Vinga with TECDIS

The rebuilt bridge on Stena Vinga, with TECDIS and Furuno Radars.

In the article you can read more about Stena Vinga’s experience with TECDIS (the article is written in swedish), but to sum up their main reason for choosing Telko and TECDIS is simplicity:

It’s in line with our desire to remove unnecessary features for the navigators. Many ECDIS systems on the market today have received many features in a short period of time. But Telko’s system is a simpler, cleaner system.

Read more about the views of Stena Line and Telko about a simpler and more modular approach to bridge designs for the future. Telko International AB’s very own Jonas Trygg has provided a lot of insight in the article, and it is truly worth the read.

The full article is available in Sjöfartstidningen number 10/2018, and in the pdf below:

The Norwegian Coast Administration (NCA) are launching a digital route service

With this new digital route service, NCA are releasing 48 ready-made routes along the Oslofjord-coastline. The project will expand in the future to give navigators access to routes for the entire Norwegian coast. We at Telko are happy to inform our users that the shared routes are fully compatible with the latest version of TECDIS, 4.8.3.2, as they are based on the RTZ format.

Introducing the TECDIS 2728

We are exited to announce that the all new TECDIS 2728 model is joining our TECDIS linup, with availability today!

TECDIS 2728 takes most of it’s cues from our long-running 2138A and 2138B line of standalone computers, and places that high end technology in the bezel of a gorgeous 27 inch display.

It is based on the Kaby Lake platform from Intel, and features a powerful Core i5 processor, 8 GB of blazingly fast RAM, 150 GB of storage on a removable SSD, and of course that gorgeous 27 inch Full HD display. The front of the unit is totally covered in glass, adding a premium look and feel to the bridge.

Closer collaboration between Furuno Norway, Vico and Telko

Furuno Norway, Vico and Telko are uniting their forces to create new products and services in maritime electronics.

Telko AS has developed and manufactured the maritime navigation products TELchart and TECDIS for the last 20 years in close cooperation with Furuno Norway AS. Now the cooperation is strengthened, with a restructuring of Telko AS in preparation for a bright future.

In a private placement Furuno Norway AS and Vico AS are establishing a 25% share each of Telko AS. Telko Holding will remain as the largest owner with a 30% share, and IT Brekketoppen will have a 20% share. IT Brekketoppen is owned by Knut Vidar Lauritsen, the President of Telko AS since October 1st 2017.

 

Telko and Furuno Norway have renewed their exclusive distribution agreement for Telko products in the Norwegian market. Furuno Norway’s nationwide sales- and service network with Vico and 43 other dealers has been a vital part of the recipe for success for TECDIS and TELchart.

Internationally Telko will establish separate distribution channels.

 

The coming development of Telko will center around the established product lines, as well as expanding to e-navigation and digital services.

The three partners look forward to a close collaboration where great new navigation related solutions are created for our customers.
