Thursday, July 14, 2011

Totem Plus has been awarded a contract to supply a full package of Automation and Navigation Systems for a new series of Modern Bulk Carriers.  The 55800 DWT ships will be built by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) in Korea, with the first ship scheduled to be delivered by mid 2012.

The Automation package is based on the Integrated Monitoring Alarm and Control System (IMACS), supplied to over 100 ships by Totem Plus.  The system is designed for full redundancy of CPU (Hot stand-by PLC), redundant Bus and redundant work-stations.  The IMACS is based on "off-the-shelf" electronic modules such as Siemens S7-Simatic PLC with abundant spare parts anywhere. The software features extensive data analysis, fault statistics, on-line stability measurement and more.    

The Navigation systems include Totem Plus VDR, BNWAS and Totem ECDIS.  Totem ECDIS will include the COLREGS ADVISER, a collision avoidance decision support tool.  The COLREGS ADVISER analyzes the situation of ships in the vicinity and advises the Master or OOW on the best course to take in order to avoid collision in accordance with the legal requirements of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 (COLREGS).
