STN Atlas Outfits Costa Crociere's New Flagship

Built by Bremer Vulkan, Costa Crociere's new 74,000-ft. (22,555-m) flagship, Costa Victoria, began service in the Mediterranean at the end of July. At 853 ft. (260 m) long, the vessel is capable of carrying 2,250 passengers and 800 crew. STN Atlas Elektronik assumed project management for all electronic and electrical equipment, with responsibility for the design and installation of a proprietary Ship Control Center (SCC) which combines all key automation, communications, navigation, engine control and ship management functions.

The navigation sub-unit, an A t l a s N A C O S 45-2 system, features automatic track control and route planning functions, in addition to combined radar and ECDIS facilities.

STN Atlas Elektronik was also responsible for the ship's power generation and distribution systems, as well as all cabling requirements in addition to safety and GMDSS equipment.
