Cádiz, Spain (PortSEurope) January 8, 2018 – Spanish company Navantia is installing in the port of Ceuta a system for environmental monitoring and control in the waters near the harbour’s docks and wharves.
It will be the first installation of Navantia’s Surveillance System of Upcoming Waters (SVAP) in a civil port, a system that already works in the shipyards of San Fernando, Ferrol and Cartagena. The installation of this environmental monitoring and control system will monitor the dense maritime traffic, both of cargo and passengers of Ceuta port, the port authority (Autoridad Portuaria de Ceuta) said.
The port authority invests in this project about €1.01 million ($1.21 million) under a contract awarded to Navantia last year. The SVAP is a modular system of safety, environmental and traffic control that integrates different sensors, command and control centres, as well as deterrents and unmanned vessels that are coordinated through a communications network.
