Most recently Rutter’s OSSR was proven effective in detecting oil slicks during the clean-up of the oil spill from an Icelandic container ship along Norway’s southeast coast. Rutter’s technology was used by the Norwegian Coastal Administration following the oil spill into ice encompassed waters of the North Sea on February 17, 2011. “The Rutter Sigma S6 has been used and proven its capabilities during the oil spill in South-eastern Norway. It is still in use, and has made it possible to recover oil from the surface in low-light and during night conditions.”Norwegian Coastal Administration.

The Sigma S6 radar technology provides operators with real-time information about an oil slick in order to maximize recovery efforts. It is one of only two systems in the world to receive certification from the Norwegian Clean Seas Association (NOFO).
