Welcome to the REPCET website
Many populations of whales around the world are threatened by collisions with vessels. In the Mediterranean, right in the heart of the Pelagos Sanctuary, the scientific community and several shipowners have joined forces to deal with these accidents.
It is from this dynamic that the REPCET system was born - a collaborative computer tool for use in commercial shipping. Consisting of a network of maritime companies involved in the protection of marine mammals, REPCET allows known positions of whales along shipping lanes to be shared in real time via a communications satellite.
REPCET on the convoy of Costa Concordia
Concordia finally arrived in Genoa on Sunday afternoon. Among the ships of the convoy, the sailing boat from the NGO Oceanomare Delphis Onlus, in charge of detecting cetaceans, was equipped with REPCET for the occasion. We hope that this will be the starting point of the spread of REPCET in Italy!
