Australian Reef Pilots Win Safety Award
Australian Reef Pilots (ARP) and its technology suppliers have won an international award for technology which improves safety and efficiency for shipping on the Great Barrier Reef.
In a combined submission with VoyageBank and SevenCs, ARP was awarded the IHS Safety at Sea 2013 Award (Systems Category) for the unique VoyageBank pilot system. The custom navigation program combines tablets, cloud computing, electronic charting and an onshore safety management system to better protect one of the planet’s most sensitive and challenging maritime areas.
The IHS Safety at Sea 2013 Awards recognize excellence across the international maritime market and were presented at a ceremony onboard the historic HMS Belfast in London last night.
