ST. JOHN'S, NL, Canada, March 24 /PRNewswire/ - Rutter Inc. (TSX: RUT), today is announcing an order for its Oil Spill Response Radar (OSSR) with a total value of just under $USD 1,000,000. This most recent purchase, expected to be delivered in spring 2011, builds upon the momentum of global interest in the Sigma S6 system.
President and CEO, Fraser Edison, says "The Oil Spill Response Radar system continues to receive strong interest from all sectors of the offshore industry and is being deployed on vessels operating around the world. The Sigma S6 radar technology is the primary component in the Oil Spill Response Radar, Ice Navigation and Small Target Detection systems produced by Rutter."
Most recently Rutter's OSSR was proven effective in detecting oil slicks during the clean-up of the oil spill from an Icelandic container ship along Norway's southeast coast. Rutter's technology was used by the Norwegian Coastal Administration following the oil spill into ice encompassed waters of the North Sea on February 17, 2011. "The Rutter Sigma S6 has been used and proven its capabilities during the oil spill in South-eastern Norway. It is still in use, and has made it possible to recover oil from the surface in low-light and during night conditions." - Norwegian Coastal Administration.
The Sigma S6 radar technology provides operators with real-time information about an oil slick in order to maximize recovery efforts. It is one of only two systems in the world to receive certification from the Norwegian Clean Seas Association (NOFO).
