Welcome to Novaco
Novaco is an Information Services company that collates, publishes and distributes navigation information to ships worldwide. Our focus is entirely on e-distribution and we are passionate about improving access to critical navigation information and simplifying everyday tasks for the deck officers.
In the world of electronic navigation, Novaco provides an integrated supply and maintenance service for ENCs as well as Digital Publications. NovacoENC is a fax-like service that delivers all ENC base & update CDs over the air, rendering the physical delivery of CDs obsolete. Alternatively, customised base and update CDs may be tailored to specific requirements.
NovacoBridge is a state of the art solution that gives officers access to everything a chart agent should know about charts and publications. Officers can now make independent decisions or validate the information they receive on new editions or corrections of charts and publications.
Novaco was the first company to make e-distribution accessible by ships that were struggling with poor or extremely expensive communication links to shore. For those with ample data communications systems Novaco’s highly compressed datasets preserve bandwidth and increase transfer speeds. Novaco’s weekly updates can be as little as 200kb.
Novaco services are modular and offer complete flexibility on subscription choices. Subscribers can choose from a wide range of information such as weather forecasts, notices to mariners, tracings, blocks, correction lists, supplements and other navigational material published by the maritime authorities of the UK, USA and others.
Simplicity and effectiveness are integral to our approach. Novaco innovations build on emerging technologies to provide solutions that were previously thought impossible. Novaco services make compliance to SOLAS (v) requirements a routine task.
