Korean Interest Purchases Autronica Ship Berthing Radar
ontract by construction company Hanjung to supply three ship berthing radar guidance systems to Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO). The systems are due to be installed on KEPCO's jetties at Samchonpo in September, and will reportedly berth coal supply ships with greater safety and efficiency. The Norwegian company's GX- 100 berthing system has a range of up to 200 m, and provides realtime data on approach speed, ship to jetty distance and ship range. This information may be sent to control rooms, to large displays for outdoor sites on the jetty side, or transmitted to remote portable displays for use on the ship or tugs.
