Hamurg-based STN Atlas Marine Electronics
has been awarded a contract for supply and installation of integrated monitoring and control and automatic power management systems aboard
the new SNCM Ferrterranee RoPax ferry being built by the van der Giessen-de Noord yard in the Netherlands
. The 175m-long 37,000 gt vessel, which will have a capacity for 550 passengers as well as their vehicles, is due for completion towards the end of this year.
The systems include a proprietary type-approved Geamar 120 ISL monitoring and control assembly for centralized ship management and control using a series of operator workstations which collectively provide up to 2,500 measuring points in addition to automated alarm functions. The assembly will also incorporate a Geapas 10 automated power management system for control, display and monitoring of all the vessel’s generators.
