Alphatron completes Polaris delivery

Alphatron Marine reports that it has completed the delivery of a full package of ship electronics to the new pilot station vessel Polaris.

The package included navigation/communication systems and wheelhouse consoles, as well as satellite television, the IT network, IP streaming systems, entertainment systems and CCTV.

Alphatron was responsible for the design, installation and commissioning of the system, working in cooperation with Fysergo, a Dutch company specialised in ergonomic workspace design, to deliver an Alphabridge wheelhouse concept designed in order to comply with the demands of the Dutch pilots association with regard to sitting and standing vessel operations.

A special workspace for the pilots was also included in the total bridge concept.

The Polaris wheelhouse was designed using common style panels, monitors and controls from the company's Alphaline design concept, a standard design concept allowing for systems supplied by different vendors but based upon a common equipment mounting technique.
