protection from navigation hazard
Guardian marked a hazardous wreck in the Singapore Strait. Over 8000 vessels were warned during 9 months of salvage work.
Caution and warning messages were sent to vessels’ navigation systems if they were on a collision course with the wreck.
Three monitoring zones at 5 nautical miles, 2 nautical miles and 500m were set up for multiple levels of alerts.
Over 8000 vessels automatically alerted of hazardous wreck while entering Singapore Strait
Vesper Marine’s innovative Guardian solution successfully helped alert over 8000 vessels over 9 months to avoid navigating around a dangerous shipwreck at Singapore port. The salvage operation team conducted a safe and cost-effective salvage in the busy waterways managed by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). At the same time, it helped Hanseatic Underwriters reduce the overall cost of the salvage operation. The operation was a significant success, considering Singapore is one of the world’s busiest ports, with particularly dense and hard to navigate waters and a constant stream of ships criss-crossing the passage to pick up loads or refuel.
