Kongsberg Maritime introduces new bridge technologies

Kongsberg Maritime has introduced a range of new bridge and navigation technology systems, on the back of last week's Nor-Shipping exhibition in Oslo.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}This includes the next generation of the company's flagship Integrated Bridge System, K-Bridge, updated to meet the latest rules and regulations regarding integration.

A new vessel automation portfolio was also introduced at Nor-Shipping, including a COTS (commercial off the shelf) steering system aimed at vessels that don’t require fully integrated manoeuvring solutions, as well as a new line of electronic logbooks covering Engine Logbook, Deck Logbook, Oil Record Book 1, Radio Logbook and Garbage Logbook.

‘K-Log’ is designed to replace traditional paper logbooks by collecting data and information into a single data storage platform, either manually or automatically. The system supports event based recording of data related to navigation, engine, garbage handling, port calls and other operational activities.

The software platform that can be customised to fit specific vessels or fleets, taking into account individual requirements of event set-up and structure. It features customisable shortcuts to events, and certain events can be recorded at specific times or in a sequence. The user can define these rules.

Additionally, some events can be recorded in multiple logbooks, for example  an event recorded in the Deck Logbook can be sent to the Engine Logbook as a pre-filled suggested event. The officer responsible for the Engine Logbook only has to confirm before it is stored as an entry.

In addition to these systems, new  features have also been added to Kongsberg Maritime’s Information Management System (K-IMS) web-based communications platform, with the addition of a benchmarking function that enables comparison of performance figures to reference values.{/mprestriction}
