Construction of Coastal Station at Port Varna Completed

The construction of the coastal station at Port Varna has been completed.
The coastal station will host an operations center which will manage vessel traffic (VTS Center Varna).
The center will monitor and direct ships north of Cape Emine and also engage in real-time information exchange with the coastal station in Burgas, according to reports of the maritime.bg portal.
The new building of the Varna-based coastal station will also host the Bulgarian operations center of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS).
The GMDSS center in Varna will carry out all communications which Bulgaria has to carry out under the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).
Under the Merchant Shipping Code, State Enterprise Port Infrastructure is in charge of building and maintaining the vessel traffic management system, as well as providing information service to ships.
The construction of coastal stations providing information service to ships in Varna and Burgas is financed under operational program Transport 2007-2014.
