Quatergas Newbuilds Employ Kongsberg K-Bridge Consoles

Wednesday, August 23, 2006
Kongsberg Maritime has delivered the first K-Bridge consoles in its contract to supply Bridge, Cargo, Integrated Automation Systems and Integrated Navigation Systems to four vessels in production at Samsung and Hyundai for the OSG/QGII expansion project. The contract was facilitated via Kongsberg Maritime Korea and is worth approximately $3.2m

The K-Bridge navigation system consists of a complete range of consoles, including K-rudder angle system and steering control systems. Other equipment within the integrated navigation system includes Speed log, Echo Sounder, GMDSS and chart system, in addition to standalone X-band Radar. Kongsberg Maritime Korea completed the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) of the K-Bridge system on 11th May 2006.

The QGII project vessels are the first to utilise Kongsberg Maritime's K-Bridge system, which is part of a new integrated shipwide network called K-Line. Based on common system technology, K-Line provides safe and sophisticated solutions for Navigation (K-Bridge), Automation (K-Chief), Dynamic Positioning & Joystick (K-Pos), Prop and Thruster Control (K-Thrust), Tank Gauging (K-Gauge) and Safety (K-Safe). The K-Bridge system is setting a new standard on redundancy and availability with its new technological solution. Each system can be installed as a standalone sub-system or as a greater ship-wide network based vessel management system.
