SAM bridge for jack-up vessel

SAM Electronics reports that it has successfully completed supply and installation of a range of electrical and other equipment aboard HGO InfraSea Solutions’ new offshore heavy-lift jack-up crane vessel Innovation, including an integrated bridge system.

The installation was performed as part of a consortium headed by Caterpillar Marine Power Systems and including thrust manufacturers SCHOTTEL and Zeppelin Power Systems.

The SAM Electronics-designed NACOS Platinum bridge-based automation, control and monitoring system for the vessel comprises a series of standardised workstations with multi-function displays supported by a common operating network.

Components include one wave radar, one S- and three X-band radars linked to five Multipilot workstations which can be variously used for control of radar, ECDIS and conning functions.

The system’s automation sector can process approximately 4,500 input and output signals controlled by ten process stations, with operator control possible in differing locations such as the engine control room and officer cabins in addition to the bridge.

The NACOS Platinum assembly will also be integrated with a DP2 dynamic positioning unit for maintaining vessel location in changing environments. It has been developed by SAM’s associate L-3 company, Dynamic Positioning & Control Systems.
