Integrated control system for Olympic Commander

Sea trials testing a new Integrated Control System (ICS) developed by Kongsberg Maritime for Olympic Commander, a new Multi Purpose Supply Vessel (MPVS) built at Kleven Yard in Norway, have been successfully completed.

The ICS aboard Olympic Commander features a one touch control system for Ballast & Cargo tank operations as part of the Kongsberg K-Master workstation on board, which also integrates Dynamic Positioning, thruster control and automation systems to be controlled by a seated operator.

The one touch control can be used for all cargo systems, including drybulk, liquid, oils and others. Other systems under K-Master control aboard Olympic Commander include VHF/UHF and deck lighting.

Olympic Commander is the first of three MPSVs under construction for Olympic Shipping at Kleven Yard that feature the Kongsberg K-Master aft-bridge workstation as the platform for an ICS. Kleven Yard has so far ordered integrated systems based on K-Master for nine vessels.

“Olympic Commander is a significant demonstration of the possibilities of the K-Master aft-bridge workstation, as it features for the first time our new type of integrated operation interface and touch screen based automated Ballast & Cargo system,” says Simen Wadd Johansen, project manager, Kongsberg Maritime.

"We have deliveries to over 20 Platform Supply Vessels with automated cargo operations based on K-Master on our books, so Olympic Commander and our work with Olympic Shipping and Kleven Yard is an important foundation for coming projects."
