Posted on 13 November 2018

We've recently completed the task of equipping the Loire Pilots  with Navicom PPUs. They chose our popular PPU combo - GyroPilot and GyroPilot Plus. 

The Loire Pilots are a team of 32 pilots who guide vessels coming in and out of the Grand seaport of Nantes-Saint-Nazaire
on the long, windy Loire river. It is the leading port leading port on France’s Atlantic Seaboard and the fifth port authority of France. Also has one of Europe's largest LNG terminal operated on a long-term basis by Elengy.
We delivered 31 turn-key systems consisting of GyroPilot, iPad and SEAiq software - all set-up and ready to go out of the box. 

We thank the team at Nantes-Saint-Nazaire and the Loire Pilots.  We are very proud to play part in their duties by providing our devices that assist their skills & decision making while improving situational awareness for them on the longest river in France! Here is a link to an article which gives the reader a first-hand view of the job they do.
