ST. JOHN'S, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - Canadian based Rutter Technologies, a
division of Rutter Inc. (TSX: RUT), has entered into an agreement to
provide its Oil Spill Detection and Management Systems for deployment
in the U.S. offshore oil industry. This latest commitment is in
addition to an original system which was sold for service in November
2010. Delivery will begin immediately, and is anticipated to be
completed in April 2011.
Rutter President and CEO, Fraser Edison, says "this purchase by Marine
Spill Response Corporation (MSRC) is intended to enhance offshore
skimming capabilities during night time operations as well as during
times of decreased visibility." Edison says "the majority of these
units will be deployed on boats and barges operating in the Gulf of
Mexico, potentially opening new doors for Rutter's oil spill technology
to opportunities in the United States."
Rutter's Oil Spill Detection and Management Systems are currently in
operation on vessels operating in Brazil, Norway, Egypt and the United
States. The Sigma S6 radar technology provides operators with real-time
information about the volume and thickest areas of an oil slick in
order to maximize recovery efforts.
