New environmental monitoring system at the Port of Dover
OceanWise has collaborated with Marico Marine on an auspicious project to install a brand-new VTS system at the Port of Dover. The new ‘state of the art’ system (see picture) which is now commissioned and fully operational, has been designed to improve operations, support decision making and enhance efficiencies at the Port.

Steven Masters, Dover Harbour Master says: “Over the years, the role of a VTS Officer has changed and has evolved in response to ever increasing volumes of vessel traffic and significant improving developments in information technology and legislation. The new Port of Dover system blends together superbly.”
Bruce Mills, Associate Director of Marico Marine, who led the project also comments “The OceanWise system was chosen by Marico and the Port of Dover as it provided a powerful range of features/functions whilst at the same time being robust and reliable.”
