Ice cruise vessel to be fitted out by Kongsberg

The Scenic Eclipse’s bridge will be set up using the K-Master system The Scenic Eclipse’s bridge will be set up using the K-Master system

Kongsberg Maritime is to install a range of technology systems aboard Australian cruise line Scenic Cruises’ new ice class cruise ship, the 228-passenger, 168 metre long Scenic Eclipse, which is currently under construction at Uljanik Shipyard in Croatia ahead of expected delivery during 2018.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The scope of supply combines navigation and Dynamic Positioning (DP) systems, automation, an Emergency Shutdown System (ESD), Power Management System (PMS) and Safety Management and Control System (SMCS), all connected to a single Integrated Control System.

This will also be integrated with an online diagnostics and remote service facility, with the K-Chief automation control system featuring close to 10,000 I/O points.

The Scenic Eclipse’s bridge will be focused around the K-Master Integrated Bridge System, centred on two independent and redundant workstations, with multifunctional operator stations for navigation and positioning using a common user interface through touch screens, which replace traditional operator panels.

The redundant radar network enables navigators to combine signals from all four radars on board into a single picture, with additional functions for ice detection and wave height and direction calculations also part of the package.{/mprestriction}
