Brookes Bell Safety at Sea carried out another successful installation of the onboard Safe Return to Port, Crew Advisory System (BBCAS) on Royal Caribbean’s newest cruise ship Symphony of the Seas. Two of Brookes Bell software engineers were sent to Saint-Nazaire shipyard, spending a full week onboard setting up and configuring the software, carrying out a full site acceptance test and training up over thirty members of crew.

The case study highlights the Safe Return to Port system, developed in house by Brookes Bell. It consists of a sophisticated two stage approach that evaluates the redundancy of essential ship systems, in accordance with SOLAS provisions and IMO guidelines, and provides a means for the owners & crew to demonstrate compliance, manage & monitor SRtP drills for a safer ship.
