Sea Goddess Fire Detection Upgraded

Thursday, December 06, 2001
Kongsberg Martime Ship Systems (KMSS) won a contract to upgrade the Fire Detection System for M/V’s luxury cruise ships ‘Sea Goddess I and II’. KMSS will be supplying its Autronica fire detection system to these identical sister ships. The order follows the recent demand from the National Safety Transport Board in USA for an integrated Local Buzzer in each cabin smoke detector. KMSS is the only company capable of delivering the ‘smart buzzer’ mounted inside the detector. This buzzer does not require any extra cabling as it is powered from the detector loop. An added safety feature is that it will turn itself off after 30 seconds, allowing the passenger to hear the Ship’s PA system after the local alarm. The upgrade consists of approximately 400 detectors and other field devices per ship, with delivery expected early 2002. The new system will replace a system from Thorn Security that was installed in 1994. Over the past year KMSS has been winning more and more contracts for fire detection and control systems on board cruise and passenger vessels with its Autronica AutroSafe® and Autronica AutroMaster® Systems. During 2001 KMSS has won contracts for major owners such as, Carnival Cruises, RCCL, Costa Cruises, Transmeddeterrenia, ResidenSea and AMEC Line.
