The fully integrated platform management system Servowatch designed and built for three new offshore patrol vessels for the U.K. Royal Navy has completed BAE Systems’ Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT).
 
Servowatch, the supplier of advanced integrated ship control systems, will now integrate the IPMS package at BAE Systems’ shipyard on the River Clyde, Glasgow, Scotland, where the next-generation OPVs are currently under construction.
 
The Servowatch scope of supply includes a fully integrated control and management system for the vessels’ propulsion, power generation, HVAC, fire-detection and tank gauging systems.
 
The first vessel in the new batch will have more storage and accommodation facilities and a larger flight deck than the current River Class of OPVs. 
 
They will be delivered to the Royal Navy in 2017.
