The company said it expected to be the first company in the world to present a Type Approval of a Bridge Navigational Watch Alarm System complying with the new IEC 62616 performance standard. DNV has carried out the performance test with success and now we are only waiting for environmental test to be completed. The BW-800 system will be ready for sale ultimo April 2010.

The BW-800 system is designed for easy installation on both new vessels as well as the retrofit market. The BW-800 Bridge Watch Alarm System will be environmental tested according to specifications from following classification societies:
