Sensors Aid Detection of Extensive Oil Spills in the Sea

Rolls-Royce, the leading provider of power systems, has been assigned to upgrade the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) ship Thomas Jefferson which is the Moving Vessel Profiler (MVP™) of the NOAA.

Rolls –Royce plans to supply an advanced high quality sensor series by incorporating instruments in to it, which can boost the present practicality of the ship.

The MVP updation with a Cyclops-7 crude oil sensor and a Multi Sensor Free Fall Fish (MSFFF) permits the determination of a wide range of concentrations of oil, thereby reinforcing the capacity of the ship to monitor and map the oil spill of the Gulf of Mexico extensively.

According to Arnold Furlong, Senior Vice President of Rolls-Royce for the Naval Undersea Systems, they are gratified to be part of NOAA’s mission in helping the researchers to tract the extensive oil spill.
