Sperry Outfits Increasing Number Of Ships With Integrated Bridge

In recent months, 11 new ships, seeking vessel navigation systems which will increase vessel safety and reduce operating costs, have joined the more than 125 ships equipped with a Sperry Marine VMS Integrated Bridge. These vessels include: Sensation cruise ship, owned by Carnival Cruise Lines; Nordic Empress cruise ship, owned by Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines; Costa Romantica cruise ship, owned by Costa Crociere; Colleen Sif containership, owned by K.I. Larsen; Joergen Lauritzen reefer, owned by Lauritzen Reefers; Maersk Euro Qarto containership, owned by K.I. Larsen; Eagle tanker, owned by Mobil Shipping; Regal Princess cruise ship, owned by P&O Cruises; USS Tempest patrol boat, owned by U.S. Navy; Polaris Star tanker, owned by Vela International Marine Ltd.; and Via Ionio ferry, owned by Viamare. Realizing that 90 percent of all marine accidents can be avoided by improving navigation information and increasing the watch officer's conning time, Sperry Marine has designed an integrated bridge system which fuses all important data and control functions into centralized information displays for rapid analysis and action. The result is a substantial improvement in risk management. This increased navigation safety means greater operating flexibility and reduced operating costs. By supporting minimum manning levels and bolstering fuel savings, Sperry Marine's Integrated Bridge brings strong economic benefits to owner and operator.
