New Systems Will Provide Accurate Real-Time Data Onboard Two New Vessels.

Honeywell (NYSE:HON) has announced  it has been selected by Brodosplit Shipyard Company of Croatia to install its Tank Gauging and Monitoring Solution onboard two new top-segment heavy lift vessels (hulls 473 & 474) currently being built at the Brodosplit Shipyard for Dutch-based Jumbo Shipping. Once in place, the systems will provide real-time, accurate, reliable data about onboard tank levels and volumes, allowing safe and swift operation at sea as well as during the loading/unloading process.


“We selected Honeywell Process Solutions for this project because of their proven experience in tank gauging systems, their global support capabilities, and their flexibility to meet the tight deadline,” said Tanja Jadresic, spokesperson for Brodosplit Shipyard. “The Honeywell system complies with the classification society’s regulations as well as the ship owner’s requirements regarding quality of build and use. Their monitoring software will also provide detailed information about the system and will have a high level of integration with the onboard automation system and the loading computer, boosting operational efficiency.”
 

The order includes a bubbling cabinet for ballast tanks; air dryer; PL3700 level transmitter for service tanks and draft, Cargoboss monitoring software, data monitoring system, commissioning, documentation, and spare parts.


The heavy lift ships will be 152m length, 27m width and 14,000t deadweight at draft of 8.1m, and equipped with two 4500 kW engines, giving them a maximum speed of 17 knots. Each vessel will be equipped with two cranes, providing a total lifting capacity of 2600t, making them the largest in the Jumbo Shipping fleet.


“We have a long-term relationship with Brodosplit Shipyard that began more than 20 years ago,” says Philippe Despagne, general manager-Marine, Honeywell Process Solutions. “Our Tank Gauging and Monitoring Solution provides a state-of-the-art level gauging solution that will enable safe and efficient operations both onboard Jumbo Shipping’s new vessels and at Brodosplit Shipyard.”
