The 10,600-TEU vessels, built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) in South Korea, will each be outfitted with five high-resolution multipurpose workstations sited in ship bridge and engine control rooms.

The navigation systems will consist of X- and S-band radars, ECDIS and conning operations, automatic steering, track control and voyage planning. The contract will also include supply of AIS, VDR, differential GPS, Doppler log, echosounder and wind/weather navaids, as well as a bridge navigational watch alarm system (BNWAS).

“We are extremely pleased to be selected to deliver NACOS Platinum for one of the world’s largest container shipping lines,” said Maik Stoevhase, managing director at L-3 SAM Electronics ANC.

“This order once again confirms the continued high-level acceptance of L-3’s latest family of advanced, ergonomically designed Platinum systems and reaffirms our position as the market leader of integrated navigation and automation systems for the newest generation of container ships.”

Each NACOS assembly will include an integrated MCS Platinum monitoring and control system covering all main vessel operating components, supported by 2,500 I/O points on a redundant LAN network, and with an integrated fuel-efficiency system.  

The ships are scheduled for delivery in 2015.
