The system, developed by British Maritime Technology (BMT), was fitted to the 162,000-dwtChinaNavigation carrier Erradale while the vessel was docked in Immingham— and, saidDavid Mitchell, fleet manager for China Navigation, was a direct response to the recent call by the IMO Maritime Safety Committee for the introduction of interfaced systems which prevent the inadvertent structural overloading of bulk carriers.

"We are always looking for ways to improve safety procedures and this BMT system is a significant addition to the onboard monitoring systems already in place," he said.
