Selex Elsag agrees 90-vessel SVITZER deal

SELEX Elsag, a Finmeccanica company, has agreed a contract with tug operator SVITZER to carry out annual radio and Automatic Identification System (AIS) surveys on all of its 90 UK-based vessels.

SVITZER operates from sixteen locations around the United Kingdom, many of which align with SELEX Elsag Marine’s regional office network.

To comply with statutory regulations, vessels must undergo an annual radio survey and AIS survey to ensure all mandatory radio safety equipment is fully functional and fitted with in-date batteries, to safeguard operations should the vessel encounter difficulties.

The work will be done by SELEX Elsag Marine radio surveyors, with reports and findings sent to Lloyds Register to issue the relevant annual certificate on behalf of the UK authorities.
