It was announced by Transas Marine Ltd in week ending 17 October that the port of Ajaccio, the main commercial port in the south of Corsica, is equipped now with the latest generation maritime Vessel Traffic Surveillance system. This project was implemented in partnership between territorial and state authorities of Corsica.
Within the project Transas delivered and installed its Navi-Monitor surveillance solution (illustrated) to monitor and manage the vessel traffic within the port in real-time mode. The Harbour Master’s office represents the heart of the system. The operator display units installed ensure the operational marine traffic picture is available in real-time and is based on the accurate data transmitted from several high-performant sensors including radar, antennas and VHF radio, AIS base station and weather station.
