WSP, CLSLP, MSRC AND SAKHALIN ARE AWARDED A CONTRACT TO IMPLEMENT NEW BATHYMETRY, SURFACE CURRENT AND TIDAL STANDARDS

WSP, one of the world’s largest professional engineering consulting firms, in partnership with maritime navigation software provider Sakhalin, the Corporation of Lower Saint Lawrence Pilots Inc. (CLSLP), and the Maritime Simulation and Resource Centre (MSRC), announced that it has entered into a contract to provide pilots and the maritime industry with more accurate data for maritime navigation in Canada.

With this mandate, the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) wishes to promote the implementation of the new S-100 standards to provide mariners with access to additional information (bathymetry, surface currents and water levels) and greater versatility in the display of these data.

The WSP’s Geospatial and Business Solutions team will manage the project on behalf of all the partners. “WSP was able to demonstrate its ability to innovate by working in collaboration with various partners to provide an innovative and turnkey solution. Our client-focused approach and an integrated services offering have really made a difference,” said Olivier Joyal, Business Line Executive, Environment.

Sakhalin, developer of the SEAiq Pilot application, will modify its existing navigation software to load and display data from the new S-100 standards, in accordance with the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) norms and standards used by CHS.

Thanks to its team of experienced pilots, the CLSLP will offer its expertise to validate and test the various standards on the SEAiq Pilot software. They will ensure that the deployment of S-100 standards meets the needs and operational realities of pilots. They will also participate in the development of the various functionalities that will be created or modified in order to benefit from the new standards’ advantages.

The MSRC, a division of the CLSLP, will provide the navigation simulation bridges and the expertise necessary to visualize the effects of using S-100 standards. Their experience in testing various navigation software will be used to validate and document the deliverables expected by customers.

WSP, CLSLP, MSRC and Sakhalin are awarded a contract to implement new bathymetry, surface current and tidal standards.

Editors Note:
With the advent of electronic navigation and the technological progress of surveying systems and production capabilities, the ability to enhance maritime navigation with the portrayal of high resolution bathymetry has become a requirement. The provision and utilization of such data in a standardized format is essential to support the safe and precise navigation of marine vessels, and furthermore an important basis for many other maritime applications.

Video Tug Girding

Between 2005 and 2018, the TSB received reports of 26 girding situations resulting in 21 capsizings. Girding occurs when a vessel is pulled broadside by a towline force and is unable to manoeuver out of this position. The TSB created this video to illustrate the factors leading to girding and the recovery methods.
The TSB would like to thank Ledcor Resources and Transportation Inc. for use of simulator training images in the girding video. We would also like to acknowledge the U.S....
