Pacific Century CyberWorks Ltd. said its PCCW-HKT telecommunications unit on Wednesday signed an agreement to provide advanced vessel traffic monitoring systems for the Hong Kong Marine Department. PCCW said the agreement was signed with Holland Institute of Traffic Technology (HITT), to which the Hong Kong government has awarded a HK$158 million surveillance equipment contract with
PCCW-HKT as its sub-contractor. The marine project is due for completion by the end of 2001. HITT will be responsible for the project's overall design and software applications development. PCCW-HKT will operate and maintain the system once it is up and running.
