Navtor, a Norwegian e-navigation specialist, is opening its first base in the UK in Somerset, led by Richard Northover.

Northover is a veteran of the maritime industry. After starting his career navigating and commanding commercial yachts, he took the role of UK and Ireland sales and marketing manager at Brookes and Gatehouse, before moving on to ChartCo and then Kelvin Hughes as regional sales manager. Most recently, he was commercial manager at the International Centre for ENCs (IC-ENC).

Navtor’s ENC-based portfolio enables access to, and updates of, the latest digital charts. Weather and route optimization options can help enhance safety and fuel efficiency, delivering fuel savings of about 4 percent, the company said in a statement.

Key Navtor products include the ENC Service, compatible with all types of ECDIS and available on a subscription basis; NavStation; NavTracker fleet management software; and NavBox, which automatically downloads the latest navigational data without navigators having to check for updates.

Established in 2011, Navtor launching its ENC service in 2012. Since then, the business has grown to offices in Russia, Singapore, Japan and Sweden. For more information, visit www.navtor.com.
