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.
