LMS Wins RFA Ship Refit Contract

Wednesday, January 03, 2001
The Ministry of Defense has awarded a contract to Litton Marine Systems to install an ISIS 2500 alarm monitoring and condition assessment system on the auxiliary supply ship RFA Ft. Rosalie. The new order follows on the successful sea trials of a similar system on the sister ship, RFA Ft. Austin, earlier this year. As with the installation on RFA Ft. Austin, Litton was required to complete the installation in under seven working days, during which the ship will be in a four-hour readiness status. The installation was scheduled for completion in December 2000. The scope of work will include removal of the existing system, installation and commissioning of the new equipment, technical support and onboard crew training. The new system will include Windows NT workstations with distributed alarm units monitoring over 650 sensor points throughout the ship, including the main engine, alternators, exhaust gas temperatures, bearing temperatures, lube oil pressures and temperatures, water pressures and miscellaneous plant sensors. It will be used to provide shipboard personnel with extensive trend analysis and performance monitoring, as well as real-time monitoring and alarms. The system is designed to be easily expanded at a later date.
