Wärtsilä's Nacos Platinum Integrated Navigation Automation Control System has been selected for a series of three 'mega-class' container vessels being built for French shipowner CMA CGM at the HHIC-Phil yard in Subic Bay, Philippines. The contract with Wärtsilä was signed in August.
The Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum platform is based on an Ethernet-based network and covers all aspects of integrated bridge and machinery monitoring and control systems. It combines all relevant navigation and automation tasks under a single HMI (Human Machine Interface) umbrella. The system uses modern ring topology and provides the flexibility to navigate, control and monitor the vessel from different multifunctional operator stations.
Wärtsilä has earlier received orders for propulsion and other equipment for these same vessels. The scope of supply includes a Wärtsilä X92 2-stroke main engine, Wärtsilä Airguard aft seals, Sternguard forward seals, Sternsafe bearings, and Line Shaft bearings. Delivery of the Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled to commence in May 2016.
