GPS for Sydney Ferries

Wednesday, April 05, 2006
According to the Daily Telegraph, 30 of the 31 ferries in Sydney had global position systems installed, which will help improve the way ferries dock at a destination. In addition, the Hunter-based maritime firm Novamarine would install black boxes into the ferries, while Chipping-Norton based MTU Detroit Diesel would upgrade the engines on First Fleet and Rivercat vessels. The measures are part of a $5.4m safety upgrade announced in October last year after the Manly ferry Collaroy, with 200 people on board, hit a wharf as it was berthing at Circular Quay in September 19. Two people suffered minor injuries in the accident. (Source: Daily Telegraph)
