TrackWell and the Norwegian company NAVY AS have signed an agreement that NAVY becomes a distributor of TrackWell electronic logbooks in Norway.
The Directorate of Fisheries in Norway has issued a new requirement for electronic logbooks which will apply from October 1st 2010 for fishing vessels over 21 meters and from January 1st 2011 for vessels over 15 meters.
The TrackWell Logbook is already certified against existing regulations in Norway and is in the final approval stage to meet the new regulations. The logbook has been adapted to the Norwegian market and is in use onboard several vessels. The logbook will be sold and supported by NAVY nationwide dealer network under the brand name “TrackWell Fangstdagbok”.
“We are very pleased by NAVY as a new distributor when many of the fishermen know NAVY well and have a good relationship with them.
NAVY has very good coverage along the coast of Norway and will be able to offer a first class service to the boats no matter what port they are in. NAVY has over 100 experts in marine electronics that are located in over 20 offices from Kirkenes to Fredrikstad. This will ensure customers good support of the logbook, “said Steingrímur Gunnarsson Sales Manager at TrackWell.
