The North Atlantic Row 2013

A crew of four Icelanders have started a journey to row unsupported from Norway to Iceland, via Scotland (Orkney) and the Faroe Islands in 2013, and then in 2014 to continue on to Greenland and Canada. The route covers some of the most difficult seas in the North Atlantic and has never been rowed successfully before. They use a tracking system from Trackwell for their safety at sea. You can follow them here live on this map through the tracking system. On May 17th 2013 they launched from Kristiansand Norway, and are heading towards Iceland, via Scotland, and The Faroe Islands. The exact dates and locations will depend on weather and currents. The time in which we complete our journey will also depend on Ægir, Freyr and Thor, the Norse gods of weather and seas. Saga Film, Iceland’s number one film production company and crew, will document our expedition. More information on their facebook page North Atlantic...

Future in Fishing Management

An article published in the Icelandic Fishing Industry Magazine in April 2013: Electronic logbooks are becoming mandatory for most commercial fisheries in most countries. In most cases they are used solely as a mandatory reporting system for the fishing authorities.  It is however possible to use the logbook as a base for additional collection of information for the benefit of the fishing companies. To minimize the effort and improve efficiency, Trackwell has launched Product Manager, a system that keeps track of all production registration onboard and links the product data to fishing grounds and catch activity data collected by the e-Logbook.  This eliminates multiple entries of data and enables tracing of fish products all the way to the location and time where and when the fish was caught. The system also maintains information on production value, packaging usage, utilization factors and quality inspections. Positive feedback from captains and users Some seafood companies have started to use the full-featured Product Manager Service from Trackwell. HB Grandi, one of the largest fishing companies in Iceland, is using the system to collect data from the vessels and automatically transfer the information to the company’s ERP system, which is based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This reduces errors and saves labour costs by minimizing double entries of data. It also allows company managers to allocate the product on inventory before it has been landed. Product Manager has been installed onboard five factory vessels owned by the Canadian company Ocean Choice International. The registrations from the vessels are collected in a database on a central server, enabling company managers to monitor the latest information on...
