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.

  • Trio sign strategic agreement on engine digitisation

    MAN Energy Solutions, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and HSD Engine (HSD) have agreed to cooperate in the field of marine engine systems digitisation.


    The companies will define a framework for a future long-term strategic digital cooperation in the areas of marine engine solutions and auxiliary systems data, the collection and analysis of the data and the integration of it with smart ship platforms and intelligent diagnostic solutions.


    “MAN Energy Solutions is determined to drive the digital transition of the marine industry”, said Brian Østergaard Sørensen, head of R&D 2-Stroke Business at MAN Energy Solutions. “We strongly believe that this transition can best be achieved through cooperation and collaboration including customers and providers across the industry. The agreement at hand is a step in this direction and brings together market leading expertise in the fields of shipbuilding and engine design, manufacturing and operation to explore options for a joint digital development in an important segment of the maritime market.”


    K. Choi, head of DSME’s R&D Institute, commented: “DSME is conducting R&D activities to combine digital technology to various fields in shipbuilding including collaboration with marine engine makers.”


    W. Park, head of design & R&D at HSD, stated: “Through this strategic cooperation agreement, HSD will share our own service experiences to DSME and MAN Energy Solution. Furthermore, we will also continue our role as a pioneer engine manufacturer in the field of smart ship in order to serve our customers a real-time monitoring service with remote supports through the advanced engine diagnosis technology and it will consequently give us safer and more economical engine operation accordingly.”


    MAN Energy Solutions’ new digital platform, MAN CEON, will play a part in the companies’ transition to digital operations. The solution collects and evaluates operating and sensor data and enables the real-time monitoring of marine and power-plant engines, turbines and compressors.


    “Digitisation is often reduced to a technical level but is really about providing more valuable services to our customers. Thanks to MAN CEON, we can provide our customers onshore and on-board with even more timely and insightful support in their daily operations, and optimise the availability and efficiency of their installations,” said Per Hansson, head of digital and strategy at MAN Energy Solutions.


    The signing took place in Copenhagen.
