The German navigation system manufacturer Raytheon Anschütz, together with its Norwegian distributor Syberg, has been awarded a contract for the supply of a Synapsis Integrated Navigation System (INS) to two new windpark service vessels.

The Norwegian shipyard Havyard Ship Technology in Leirvik / Sogn is designing and building the new vessels. Raytheon Anschütz says that it will supply equipment from its Synapsis Intelligent Bridge Control series.

The Integrated Navigation System will feature two Synapsis multifunctional workstations for chart radar and ECDIS, two Synapsis multifunctional consoles for ECDIS and conning as well as three additional ECDIS, among other things with Weather-Overlay. Raytheon Anschütz will also supply the complete sensor system, with two redundant Standard 22 gyro compasses and the NP 5500 trackpilot.

The conning will provide operators with the HMI for the new consistent common reference system, providing continuous data integrity monitoring, data quality indication and automatic or manual sensor selection modes, as well as with an integrated display for configuration and status of system functionality.

Raytheon Anschütz says that the new Synapsis INS provides functional integration of sensor data and other information such as AIS, NAVTEX, charts, radar, centralised alarm management, system status display and reliability indication for important sensors. The INS also centralises tasks and services such as processing of navigation control data, data storage and distribution, redundancy and backup management.

Syberg will be responsible for shipyard support, supply and commissioning of the INS.

The 84m long ships will be owned by the Danish shipowner Esvagt headquartered in Esbjerg. The ships are to be delivered in December 2014 and March 2015. Siemens Energy has already chartered the ships to carry out service and maintenance for the German offshore windfarms Butendiek and Baltic II.
