Major Zetron Systems Upgrade for Guernsey Port


Guernsey Harbour Authority has upgraded its communications control system to the Zetron DCS-5020 Digital Console. “After 12 years with the earlier Zetron system, we had no doubts about the vendor whose solution we wanted,” says harbour master Captain Peter Gill. “The original system helped us cope well with our workload, but technology moves on and we were aware that a current generation system would enable us to work smarter and even more efficiently. The acid test of this busy summer season on Guernsey has shown that we got it right.”


Guernsey lies in the English Channel, 113 km (70 miles) from England and 48 km (30 miles) from France. The 62 square km (24 square mile) island has a population of some 62,000, and is a popular tourist destination. Guernsey harbour and coastguard staff manage marine traffic in the approaches to Guernsey, as well as the operation of the bustling harbours of St. Peter Port and St. Sampson’s that together see up to 2,000 pleasure craft movements a day, plus commercial shipping that annually moves some 500,000 passengers and many thousands of tons of freight and bulk cargo. The same staff are also responsible for controlling remote harbour closing lights, and fog horns around the coastline that warn shipping of hazards, as well as coordinating search and rescue by sea and air in the event of a marine emergency. Deployed widely throughout the world* with public safety, transportation and utilities, the Zetron DCS-5020 Digital Console enables small to medium sized operations control rooms to combine telephony with both digital and analogue radio control. It supports combinations of up to 30 resources including up to 16 screen-based operator consoles.
