Sperry Marine will supply a complete suite of bridge electronics for three 2,500 gross ton vessels being built at the Fels Setal shipyard in Rio de Janeiro for Delba Maritima Navegacao. The company will provide interswitched BridgeMaster E 250 and 340 radars, a gyrocompass, autopilot, speed log, echosounder, anemometer and differential global positioning system (DGPS). The three new anchor-handling tugs are scheduled for completion in 2003 and 2004.
