L-3 SAM Electronics announced today that it has been awarded a major contract to provide complete electrical packages, as well as integrated navigation, automation, communications, energy distribution and propulsion systems for Ceona Amazon, the 199-meter offshore construction and pipelaying vessel to be delivered this coming October to Ceona, a London-based subsea contracting organization. The turnkey supply work, which also includes all cabling installation, is to be carried out under contract to the vessel’s principal outfitter, Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven AG, Germany, which subcontracted the steel work to Crist S.A.’s shipyard in Gdynia, Poland.

Due to enter service in January 2015, Ceona’s multifunctional Amazon vessel is capable of operating in multiple pipelay modes, installing both rigid/flexible pipe and umbilicals. It is equipped for heavy lifting, with two 400-ton deepwater cranes, and has the capacity to carry more than 9,000 tons of rigid pipe.

“Following the successful recent completion of similar installations, the highly complex project for the Ceona Amazon represents a major undertaking that we are well-positioned to accomplish,” said Ulrich Weinreuter, president of L-3 Marine Systems International. “This latest award demonstrates L-3’s continuing presence as a leading supplier of a wide range of specialized systems and expertise in support of the global offshore shipping and platform industries.”

L-3’s vessel control system consists of a NACOS Platinum integrated navigation system, featuring standardized workstations with multipurpose displays, and an MCS Platinum automated monitoring and control system capable of processing approximately 4,500 input and output signals controlled by 10 processing stations. Supplementary support facilities comprise a full range of internal communications systems as well as a comprehensive range of GMDSS equipment. Power will be available for seven asynchronous thruster drives generated by a series of six diesel alternators supplying three medium-voltage switchboards. Other associated equipment includes six-pulse and 12-pulse PWM converter drives in addition to 16 medium-voltage propulsion and distribution transformers.

The Ceona Amazon contract is the latest in a series of major turnkey projects undertaken by L-3 SAM Electronics on behalf of leading operators of next-generation offshore construction support craft. Other recent ventures include comparable outfitting of the heavy-lift jack-up crane vessels, Innovation and Vidar.
