Vessel Monitoring System (VMS)


  • Real time tracking and EEZ monitoring
  • Automatic Alerts
  • Detecting IUU Fishing
  • Safety at sea


Installation and commissioning of a standard system takes from around 3 to 6 weeks. This is from signature of contract until the system is ready for use. There is no need for complex infrastructure and computer specialists at the customers’ location. The only required infrastructure is standard PC workstations, connected to the Internet, running standard browsers.

The system is normally hosted as a  certified cloud based solution in accordance to highest industry standards. The system allows for all server functionality removing the need for complex and expensive infrastructure at the client site. If requested, the system can also be locally hosted.

The Trackwell VMS can be set up to accommodate any size of fleet, ranging up to thousands of vessels.


Trackwell´s monitoring solutions can be customized to fit different needs and requirements of our customers. The systems dynamic architecture allows for changes in scale, performance, addition of new features and functionalities. Many of our customers have taken advantage of our systems flexibility and redefined the system to meet their specific needs.

Trackwell prides itself on its flexibility to adapt to the needs of our clients.

Price Model

Trackwell’s price model for implementation and operation of a VMS is simple and transparent. The model is based on the size of fleet to be monitored, paid on monthly or quarterly bases. This means that here is a recurrent cost consisting of license for the VMS software, support and maintenance. The license provided has no hidden cost such as transaction cost or cost of additional users. The software license is based on the number of vessels actively tracked and increases in steps, should the number of reporting vessels increase significantly.
