April 2019 Press Release
Southampton marine technology firm Azurtane is developing an advanced vessel positioning system. Working in conjunction with Red Funnel, the Isle of Wight ferry company, first trials are set to begin on the ferry operator’s high-speed craft RedJet7 in late April 2019. Azurtane’s new technology will be capable of positioning vessels within 4cm of a given location, something even the most experienced seafarer would struggle to achieve.
Azurtane managing director, Don Gregory, believes that there are two critical aspects to maintaining an efficient high-speed ferry service.
