Kongsberg Touts “One Solution” Concept

Wednesday, June 15, 2005
Kongsberg Maritime launched the Kongsberg System Technology concept at NorShipping in Oslo. Kongsberg System Technology is seen as key to the company’s entire range of integrated sub-systems based on Kongsberg Maritime solutions for: Navigation (K-Bridge); Prop and thruster control (K-Thrust); Dynamic Positioning & Joystick (K-Pos); Automation (K-Chief); Tank Gauging (K-Gauge); and, Safety (K-Safe) Within each application, Kongsberg Maritime will offer numerous technical solutions and equipment types. Customers will know the new systems by the prefix of 'K' as in K-Bridge and K-Chief.

The Integrated Vessel Management concept is designed to provide seamless integration of all vessel control systems. Bridge systems are linked to machinery and cargo automation and safety systems via a system-wide communication highway, designed to enable free flow of information. All operator stations, controllers and interface units are linked together via the redundant communication network and a common user interface, to help reduce the risk of human error and the cost of crew training.

In addition to the standard operational modes and functions, various operational specific functions are available to optimize operation. The mode control for machinery and propulsion plants is a good example; operational data for the machinery, propulsion and cargo equipment is programmed into the mode control.

Standard and special operational modes are predefined, standard mode such as maneuvering, transit and harbor modes and special mode such as station keeping, loading/offloading and drilling. When a mode is selected, the mode supervision module will alert the operator in case of any abnormality with respect to the condition of the involved machinery (alarm or status) including standby equipment.
