Kongsberg Maritime delivered CCTV systems for installation on National Gas Shipping Company’s (NGSCO) fleet of eight LNG carrier vessels in the Middle East. The project was secured in conjunction with Unique Systems FZE, Kongsberg Maritime’s local sales agent. Unique Systems FZE will be assisting in the installation and commissioning of the Kongsberg Maritime CCTV systems with two vessels refits having been completed already in April, another in July and the remaining five planned over the next few months. Each ship’s CCTV system comprises a range of robust marine grade stainless steel above deck PTZ (pan, tilt & zoom) and fixed camera stations with lowlight (day/night) viewing capabilities and washers and wipers, along with a multichannel telemetry matrix controller and 350 GB digital video recorder (DVR), and an additional control and viewing station. New CCTV cabling will be used to install the equipment on the four Al Khaznah class vessels – the Al Khaznah, Shahama, Ghasha and Ish – and existing cabling will be used to upgrade the four Mubaras class vessels – the Mubaras, Mraweh, Al Hamra and Umm Al Ashtan.
Kongsberg Maritime Middle East DMCCO and Unique Systems FZE have a long lasting cooperation with NGSCO, with systems installed on many of its vessels and ongoing service and maintenance support agreements in place.
