The 140m ro-ro vessel covered by the deal is being converted into a 125m cable-laying vessel for an unnamed submarine cable installation, maintenance and repair organisation.
Elcome is supplying the ship’s main and emergency switchboards, power distribution and management systems, integrated automation system to UMS class notation, hydrographic reference systems, cable laying, security and safety systems, external and internal lighting, loading management software and tank gauging.
On the navigation side an integrated bridge system, draft measurement system and dynamic positioning system will be delivered, while the company will also provide internal and external communications for the ship, as well as a LAN and Wi-Fi networking.
“This project is a good example of the range of technical services and capabilities Elcome can provide for a complex ship conversion project,” said Jimmy Grewal, executive director of Elcome International.
“We will work closely with the shipyard and owner to support all aspects of design, documentation, installation, system integration, testing, commissioning and sea trial acceptance.”
In other news, Elcome has also introduced a new ELSYS family of marine electrical switchboard and power management systems, featuring a modular design and switch-gear components to reduce the size and weight of the switchboards.
The systems are designed and manufactured in the company's switchboard production facility in Dubai by its own electrical design team.
