New expedition cruise ships order FarSounder-1000

FarSounder has received an order for four FarSounder-1000 Forward Looking Sonars from global supplier of ship navigation systems, Wärtsilä Valmarine. 

The systems will be installed into new expedition cruise ships over the next couple of years.

Cheryl M. Zimmerman, CEO of FarSounder, commented on the companies’ relationship, “FarSounder's ongoing receipt of multi-system orders from Wärtsilä Valmarine is a testament to the team's focus on advanced technological systems and integrations. This has been integral in building a strong and synergistic working relationship with Wärtsilä Valmarine.”

The equipment offers these polar-class cruise ships real-time 3D data that updates at every ping on their bridge. Along with this data advantage, the sonar system has no moving parts and retrieves images from over 1000 metres away, broadening the vessel’s exploration capabilities by allowing for safe navigation in waters otherwise thought of as impassable.

A heightened demand for safety in cruising through unknown waters has resulted in Wärtsilä Valmarine’s order for the state-of-the-art equipment as well as many others.
