ICENAV: AT THE FOREFRONT OF ICE NAVIGATION TECHNOLOGY

IceNav™ is a shipboard navigation system developed and distributed by Enfotec, a subsidiary of Fednav, designed for vessels operating in ice-covered waters worldwide. It is a user-friendly software that allows the reception, display, manipulation and sharing of ice information products and provides an enhanced marine radar image for better ice detection.

Based on over 15 years of experience at sea through the most challenging ice conditions that a vessel can face, the system’s latest evolution is at the cutting edge of ice navigation technology.

In 2016, Enfotec won the coveted IBJ award for Innovative Technology for IceNav.
