    Primo supports client with cable protection system

    Company News // December 16, 2010

    Primo Marine says it is assisting a major, as yet un-named client with the implementation of a cable protection system. 

    AssetMonitor, supplied by InfoTerra UK, works by keeping track of the location and activity of vessels. It alerts the client when one of these vessels breaches a rule that has been set up in a virtual protection zone around a submarine asset.

    A protection zone is an area that is marked out around a submarine asset, within which client's want to know of any vessel behaviour that might pose a threat to the integrity of that asset.

    AssetMonitor also provides vessel density data that can be used for risk management purposes.
