Skippers Technology donates navigation equipment

Skippers Technology, a family owned Australian company, have been supporting the navigation equipment on STS Leeuwin II since the vessel was built 34 years ago.

As part of the current maintenance of the STS Leeuwin, the navigation system is being updated to a new Meridian Standard Gyro.

“In approx 2012, I supplied and installed a new Meridian Teledyne Rev B Standard Gyro with 3 Teledyne TSS bearing repeaters. The Gyro hasn’t missed a beat,” says Jim Bain, owner of Skippers Technology.

“And now as part of the recent upgrade of the vessel Leeuwin Ocean Adventure wants me to supply and fit a new Meridian Gyro and 3 repeater bowls.”

“Since initial installation of the Teledyne meridian gyro I have never had a problem with its operation. It has been the one piece of navigation equipment that we could rely on every day for the last 7 years. It has been great to have a piece of equipment that was built to last, noting that there is no maintenance required by the ships Engineer.” says Alf Green, Operations Manager for Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation.
