São José, Azores, Portugal (PortSEurope) June 20, 2018 – The Costa Segura system, which will facilitate navigation control by ports, will be completed by the end of 2018 throughout the country and this summer in the Azores and Madeira, said the director general of the Maritime Authority.
“During this year we gave priority to the archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira and we will have until the end of the summer our plan of coverage in the Azores and Madeira complete, hoping also that in the mainland, until the end of 2018, we can cover those five stations that are still missing,” said Admiral Luís Sousa Pereira.
In all, there are already radar and camera stations on five Azorean islands (Santa Maria, São Miguel, Terceira, Faial and Corvo), with the extension of these means to the islands of São Jorge and Graciosa, as well as the installation of a second chamber on the island Terceira, in the bay of Angra do Heroísmo.
“As we operate and gain experience we will adapt the future stations,” said Luís Sousa Pereira, in statements to journalists, admitting that the possibility of installing other cameras in the Azores is being studied.
