The World Prepares to Avoid Ice and Marine Mammals Safely19/12/2011
|Since owners and guests aboard The World will be travelling through the Northwest Passage in the summer of 2012, The World's owners and professional staff have made a sound safety decision to upgrade their FS-3DT system to the newest FarSounder FS-3ER 1/2 nm navigation and obstacle avoidance system. This challenging voyage will include navigating through ice and avoiding large marine mammals.|
While winding their way through the Canadian Arctic Archipelego and east to the Labrador Sea, passengers will have the added security of knowing that the ship's crew will be seeing what's ahead, not just by radar above the water, but also with FarSounder's forward-looking sonar system showing the way below the water.
This will be the first upgrade to an FS-3ER performed without first dry-docking the vessel. The World will be utilising a team of commercial divers while the ship remains in the water.
