Kongsberg agrees systems deal for CMAL ferries

Kongsberg Maritime has been awarded NOK 160 Million (approximately US$19 million) in Engineering, Procurement, Construction & Installation (EPCI) contracts covering two 100 metre ferries under construction for Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL), including supply of all navigation and radio/satellite communications systems.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The deal, with Glasgow-based shipbuilder and marine fabricator Ferguson Marine Engineering Limited (FMEL), will see Kongsberg Maritime Engineering (KME) provide all engineering, procurement and project management, while Kongsberg Maritime will supply what it calls a ‘Full Picture’ system delivery.

The ferries will be ‘dual-fuel’ vessels so they can operate on liquefied natural gas (LNG) and marine diesel, and are designed to carry 127 cars or 16 HGVs, or a combination of both and up to 1,000 passengers.

The contracts include supply and integration of the electrical, telecom and integrated control systems, project management, interface management and engineering services at all stages. Cables, installation and installation materials for the above systems are also included.

On the technology side, all switchboards, automation, propulsion control, navigation systems, and radio/satellite communications systems will also be part of the package supplied. The engineering and construction phase is estimated to be two years.

“We have put more focus on Electrical, Instrument and Telecom (EIT) packages for merchant vessels. Our tailor made solutions, with in-house and procured technology provide tangible efficiencies for both yards and owners, and are ideally suited to ferries and RoPax vessels,” said Egil Haugsdal, president, Kongsberg Maritime.{/mprestriction}
