Maritime Communications Systems on the Faroe Islands

The Austrian company Frequentis is the world leader in control centre solutions and successful supplier for the Maritime Communication Systems on the Faroe Islands.

The joint venture association of the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre Tórshavn and Tórshavn Radio (VORN) under the Fisheries Council awarded Frequentis with the delivery of a maritime communication system in January 2006. VORN provides search and rescue services as well as coastal surveillance and safety services to seafarers on the Faroe Islands.

Frequentis also received additional change requests as well as a maintenance contract for the system which was renewed several times over the following years. In March 2016 VORN MRCC Torshavn contracted Frequentis with the upgrade of the Frequentis Maritime Communication System to the MCS 3020 IP Platform. VORN is pleased to have chosen Frequentis as the supplier for their Maritime Communications System for more than 10 years. The solutions provided and delivered by Frequentis have proven to be highly reliable.

Frequentis is a worldwide operating high-tech company, headquartered in Vienna and with locations in more than 50 countries. Frequentis’ core business is the ATM sector, but the company also builds voice communication and information systems for defence, public safety, public transport and maritime markets.
