Wijnne Barends shipping company earns back cameras

The captain of Lady Amalia of Wijnne Barends shipping company sailed the coaster through the Trolhattan Channel in Sweden, navigating narrow locks with sometimes only centimetres to spare on both sides. The high load of wood on the vessel created large blind spots, but the captain kept a good eye on things thanks to Orlaco's camera systems. Without cameras, the vessel would not even have been allowed to navigate the channel for safety reasons.


The 13.40 metre-wide vessel had to navigate these locks, with the opening of one particular lock measuring only 13.55 metres.Without cameras, the vessel and its large blind spot would not have been allowed on the channel, as the pilot deemed it unsafe.
Images were shot by first mate L. Faling.

The photos clearly show that the coaster has a very large blind spot. The Orlaco camera system solves this by providing ample visibility around the vessel. The cargo of wood had been loaded on the ship's hatches in very high stacks. This created a large blind spot on this narrow channel and its correspondingly narrow locks. The 13.40 metre-wide vessel had to navigate these locks, with the opening of one particular lock measuring only 13.55 metres. Thanks to the images on the monitor, the captain was easily able to manoeuvre his vessel safer and more efficiently.

 

Without cameras, the vessel and its large blind spot would not have been allowed on the channel, as the pilot deemed it unsafe. Restricted visibility increases the chances of damage. Without the camera system, the cargo would have had to be stacked one metre lower. The camera monitor systems have earned themselves back in the process. Wijnne Barends shipping company has fitted four of its coasters – Lady Anna, Lady Anneke, Lady Alexandra and Lady Amalia – with five Orlaco cameras each.
