The German navigation system manufacturer Raytheon Anschütz has been awarded the contract for the supply of advanced Integrated Navigations Systems of their Synapsis Bridge Control series to new Heavy Lift Carriers for Dutch company Jumbo Shipping.

 

The demanding new vessels are being built at Brodosplit shipyard in Split, Croatia. Jumbo has ordered two Heavy Lift Carriers at Brodosplit with delivery dates in 2013, and holds an option for a third newbuild. The 152 meters long vessels are designed for operation even in icy waters and intended to service international transport and offshore installation programs with a lifting capacity of 3,000 tons. Following their brand ethic, Jumbo builds the K-3000 Heavy Lift Carriers with regard to safety and reliability.

In order to fulfill the highest performance requirements with regard to redundancy, safety and ease of operation, Synapsis Bridge Control was selected as the bridge navigation system. Synapsis is the world’s first type-approved Integrated Navigation System (INS) according to IMO’s new Performance Standards.

The INS includes S-band- and X-band radar sensors, which are configured as full wide-screen multifunctional workstations for Chart Radar, Radar, ECDIS and Conning. Two additional multifunctional workstations with same configuration serve as main and backup ECDIS, another multifunctional workstation with ECDIS and Conning function is supplied for route planning purposes. Additionally, the bridge is equipped with two fixed-role Conning displays.

Within the INS all workstations are connected through a redundant Ethernet-based local area network (LAN). Relevant navigation data such as charts, routes and sensor information are shared within the network and stored independently on each system. Thereby, the integrated consistent common reference system (CCRS) monitors all navigation sensors and automatically selects the best available data.

On all Conning displays within the INS, the operator can access the HMI of the new CCRS to observe sensor quality or switch over to manual sensor selection mode as needed. The Conning also includes a new page for central alert monitoring. The intelligent handling and processing of alarms, warnings and cautions within a centralized alert management system helps to avoid unnecessary multiple alerts on the bridge and thus reduce stress for the operator.
 
For manual and automatic steering control, Raytheon Anschütz provides equipment from the new NautoSteer AS series and the adaptive NautoPilot 5300. The new NautoSteer AS steering control series is based on CAN-bus technology and provides advanced functionalities such as integrated steering failure, wire-break monitoring and a simplified steering mode selector switch. All controls share the same user-oriented design and allow take-over from any steering position on the bridge.

The scope of supply is completed with a double Anschütz Standard 22 gyro compass system, the full package of navigation sensors, and GMDSS radio communication equipment.
