The German navigation system manufacturer Raytheon Anschütz, says that  together with its exclusive Norwegian distributor Syberg AS, it has been awarded a contract for the supply of an advanced Synapsis Integrated Navigation System (INS) to two new state-of-the-art wind farm service vessels.

Raytheon explains that the Norwegian shipyard, Havyard Ship Technology in Leirvik / Sogn, is designing and building the new vessels which have to meet the highest demands on design, safety, efficiency and performance. Raytheon Anschütz contributes to the advanced vessels with the supply of Integrated Navigation equipment from its Synapsis Intelligent Bridge Control series, which will be in compliance with DNV’s DNV NAUT-AW notation.

The INS will feature two Synapsis multifunctional workstations for chart radar and ECDIS, two Synapsis multifunctional consoles for ECDIS and conning as well as a total of three additional ECDIS, among other things with Weather-Overlay. The complete sensor system, with two redundant Standard 22 gyro compasses and the NP 5500 trackpilot for high precision track control, complete the Raytheon Anschütz scope of supply.

Operators will be provided with HMI for the new consistent common reference system, providing continuous data integrity monitoring, data quality indication and automatic or manual sensor selection modes, as well as with an integrated display for configuration and status of system functionality. This special feature allows the operator to check the INS “health status” at a glance.

The new Synapsis INS provides functional integration of sensor data and other information such as AIS, NAVTEX, charts, radar, centralized alarm management, system status display and reliability indication for important sensors. The INS also centralizes tasks and services such as processing of navigation control data, data storage and distribution, redundancy and backup management, or change of color palettes and dimming.

Syberg AS will be responsible for shipyard support, supply and commissioning of the INS. The 84 meter long ships will be owned by the Danish shipowner Esvagt headquartered in Esbjerg.

The ships are to be delivered in December 2014 and March 2015. Siemens Energy has already chartered the ships to carry out service and maintenance for the German offshore windfarms Butendiek and Baltic II.
