VTS confirmed for Saudi

Industry Database

Kongsberg Norcontrol IT and its partner, National Advanced Systems Company (NASCO), have won a contract to supply Vessel Traffic Service (VTS), AIS Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) and high performance radar systems for eight ports in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi Ports Authority will utilise the new systems to detect vessels including tankers and small craft surrounding the local area of Dammam Port, Jubail Industrial Port, Jubail Commercial Port, Jeddah Port, Yanbu Industrial Port, Yanbu Commercial Port, Duba Port, and Jizan Port.

Steve Guest, Regional Sales Director, Kongsberg Norcontrol IT, notes: "Each of these ports has its own unique maritime domain awareness requirements.

For example, radar propagation in the Red Sea is completely different to that in the Arabian Gulf and our radar solutions need to have the correct processing to optimise radar detection in each of these areas."

System installation will take place in 2006 and operation towards the end of the year.
