Biotechnix installs BDS units on second Sea Shepherd vessel

Thursday 06 Oct 2011

After the proven success in fuel consumption efficiency on M.Y. Steve Irwin, Biotechnix was approved to install BDS units on another fleet vessel the M.Y Bob Barker.
The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organisation. Its fleet currently consists of its two major anti-whaling vessels (M.Y Steve Irwin and M.Y Bob Barker), a high speed monohull trimaran (the Brigette Bardot) and a series of small vessels and watercraft.
Biotechnix approached Captain Paul Watson, founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, with the offer to fit BDS units to the fleet to assist with reducing diesel fuel costs and carbon emissions of the fleet. After the proven success on the M.Y Steve Irwin, Biotechnix were invited to Sydney to install the systems on the M.Y. Bob Barker. Working alongside the Bob Barker’s engineers to install the systems, Biotechnix representatives also got to live aboard the Bob Barker and went for a high speed tour around Sydney Harbour in one of the smaller intercept vessels.
Biotechnix is committed to ongoing support of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
