FSG is responsible for the development and construction of the 116m Ro-Pax ferry for CMAL, which will enter into service in summer 2014.
Imtech Marine will provide technical coordination and project management for systems including automation, switchgear, power distribution, lighting, and the entire cable network. In addition, Imtech will plan, supply and install drive components such as converters, electric motors for thrusters and power management.
On the ICT side, internal and external communication via FleetBroadband, VSAT and GMDSS, as well as X-and S-band radar, ECDIS, compass, GPS and VDR will also be provided by Imtech.
The two 127 metre long offshore vessels are also scheduled for delivery in 2014 and will be used globally to discover and exploit oil and gas deposits beneath the seabed.
For these seismic vessels Imtech will similarly be in charge of engineering, technical coordination, project management, supply and commissioning of the onboard technology systems, including cable networks, internal and external communications and navigation.
“In this challenging project innovative solutions and experience in the construction of seismic vessels is needed, in particular for the very special and unique needs of the electronic chart system and the autopilot,” said Thomas Wolf, project manager at Imtech Marine Germany.
“Through various past projects in this area, we are well prepared for this task.”
