Maritime Systems I-VMS rollout continues to support Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society

Posted: 05 July 2022 Posted In: Donations

Maritime Systems donates £5,220 to the Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society from latest I-VMS subscriptions.

Maritime Systems is continuing its support of the Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society by making a donation for every subscription to its I-VMS service. Their latest donation of £5,220 to the society, brings the total this year to over £10,000.

With over 500 installed and 1000 fishermen subscribed, Maritime Systems has expanded its network of installation engineers to ensure it meets demand as the MMO deadlines approach for the smaller under 8s and under 6s. The cost of Maritime Systems’ I-VMS is fully covered by an MMO grant and includes free installation, free local support and an unlimited warranty.

The Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society provides financial help to fishers, mariners and their dependants who are in need, and also offer special grants to meet particular needs in crisis situations. Maritime Systems are committed to continuing their support of this important charity and will continue to make donations with every subscription.

From 2022, the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) requires all English registered fishing vessels under 12 metres to fitted with an approved I-VMS (Inshore Vessel Monitoring System).

James Glover, Managing Director of Maritime Systems commented, “Inshore Fishermen are an under supported group who provide a valued commodity to the British public. It was also important to me to donate to the Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society and I am proud that we are able to support this deserving charity as part of our ongoing commitment to the fishermen. These are tough times and none of us know what the future may bring.”

Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society Chief Executive, Capt. Justin Osmond RN, said: “we are delighted and very grateful to receive donations from Maritime Systems to assist our vital work supporting those from the fishing community who are suffering financial hardship and distress.”
