  • North boundary: the southern limits of the Gulf of Suez and the Gulf of Aqaba
  • South boundary: a line joining Husn Murad and Ras Siyan

Emperor Fleet suspends use of Seasafe system

| No TrackBacks

Emperor Fleet has suspended the use of the Seasafe system due to technical issues with the system. Mike Braun explains, "The technology of the system is sound but unfortunately the transmitters have proved to be unreliable due to water leaks."

Emperor has been working with the manufacturer to remedy the fault and will assist CDWS in trials early in 2011.
