Rutter Delivering Ice Navigation Systems to BP
Tuesday, December 05, 2006
Rutter Technologies is now delivering its sigma S6 Ice Navigator systems to UK based BP Shipping Ltd.
Rutter’s sigma S6 Ice Navigator provides greatly enhanced radar imaging of sea ice conditions in the vicinity of a vessel, significantly improving the ability to navigate efficiently and safely through icy waters, day or night, irrespective of weather conditions. This additional level of detail enables the ship to identify and subsequently maneuver around difficult areas, saving both time and fuel while minimizing the potential for ice damage.
