Weilbach New Edition Service has evolved continuously to meet the requirements of specialised vessels and trading patterns, and offers a fully computerised system specifically developed to meet the demands from our customers.
The system can be customised to allow for individual requirements of ship owners and managers, but the primary function is to ensure that the vessel always has on board the most up to date charts and publications for the areas in which it is operating, and is provided with the latest corrections and supplements. Once arranged, the service requires minimum action from ship managers.
Registration in our New Edition Service is FREE OF CHARGE. Your advantage is prompt delivery of new editions of the titles you have registered. Your subscription folio can be changed or cancelled at any time.
Free deliveries to shipyards
Our staffs are highly experienced, and many have been serving officers at sea. This experience ensures that the system operates smoothly and successfully and meets the customer requirements.
Preparation of scope of supply
Weilbach provides total scope of delivery of nautical instruments, charts and publications in digital as well as in paper format.
The scope of delivery is based on information from the ship owner with regards to the area of operation and the type of the vessel.
Weilbach offers short preparation- and delivery time of new building orders as well as minimum backorders.
We keep the ship owner updated with any crucial information, which may be of importance before-, during the preparation process and after delivery has taken place.
Nautical Instruments. Delivery scope of nautical instruments is based on the standard list prepared by the ship owner. Some of the instruments are manufactured by Weilbach.
Charts. The chart list is based on the expected area of operations of the vessel, which is supplied by the ship owner. Weilbach finds the charts, either paper or digital, which are necessary for safe navigation in the area and also for calling the ports in service. We struggle to keep the quantity of charts on safe minimum. Additionally, the transit charts for world wide coverage are delivered for emergency situations. The quantity varies between 200 and 750 paper charts and the charts may originate from different suppliers in order to secure the best coverage.
Finally the chart list is passed to the vessel for approval.
Based on the type of the vessel, Weilbach finds the relevant publications for the vessel, using the publication list, which is beforehand accepted by the ship owner. The list is maintained by Weilbach so the publications included fulfil the requirements from authorities, national flag states, classification societies and the internal requirement of the ship owner.
The exact publication list, which usually contains between 200 and 400 items which originates from several publishing houses, is passed on via email to the vessel for approval.
The lists of charts and publications are prepared without any cost for the ship owner.
In order to secure the complete scope of supply we recommend 3-4 weeks delivery notice, however in extraordinary situation, e.g. when a retrofit vessel is being taken over, we can supply a complete delivery of instruments, charts and publications within 3-4 days notice.
