Rutter partners on $2M oil spill technology order

ST. JOHN’S, Nfld.: Rutter Technologies has orders for six of its oil spill systems following June trials and the recent certification of the technology by the Norwegian Clean Seas Association (NOFO).

The company, a division of Rutter Inc., and its Norwegian partner Aptomar AS, is a supplier of products and services to the offshore oil industry.

Its Integrated Oil Spill Response and Management System helps oil industry operators maximize recovery efforts by providing real-time information about the volume and thickest areas of an oil slick.

The system combines Rutter’s Sigma S6 radar processor and display with the SECurus system from Aptomar, a manufacturer of maritime safety and navigation tools, to help operators make immediate decisions on oil slick detection both onboard vessels and onshore.

The $2 million deals include three systems for Edison Chouest Offshore LLC to be deployed on three vessels operating in Brazil by Petrobras, the Brazilian oil company. 

A fourth system has been ordered by Rederi AB TransAtlantic and will be deployed off Norway on a vessel operated by Statoil operations.

The system will also be leased to the Danish shipping company, Esvagt, for two vessels supporting Statoil’s operations off the coast of Egypt.
