Fishery Tracking (VMS)

Moltech Norge is an approved installer of tracking units for the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries.

About Fishery Tracking: 
Position reporting (also called tracking or VMS - Vessel Monitoring System) means that the vessel is equipped with a transmitter that is programmed to automatically send data about the vessel's position, course and speed at least once every hour to the fisheries authorities. As of 01.01.2022, tracking on Inmarsat C was no longer permitted, so all vessels that had this had to switch to another form of fishing tracking. Today, it is required that all fishing vessels over 11 report position every 10 minutes.
