Dutch shipping company Spliethoff has agreed a deal with Raytheon Anschütz for the delivery of integrated navigation systems (INS) to six newbuild ice-classed multi-purpose vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Spliethoff’s new R-type vessels are being built at the Zhejiang Ouhua Shipbuiling yard, and have been designed in accordance with the polar code and the LR NAV1 notation requirements to ensure safe operations in remote regions, including the Arctic.

The Raytheon Synapsis NX INS to be installed consists of four multifunctional workstations for chart radar, ECDIS and conning, as well as a separate workstation for conning and route planning. It integrates digital X- and S-band radars, the NP5400 trackpilot, gyro compasses, and other sensors.

The set-up also includes a 19-inch rack for PCs, network components and extenders, separating the hardware from the bridge consoles to reduce cabling and simplify installation and servicing.

The Raytheon Anschütz office in Shanghai and Chinese distributor Shanghai Eastone Marine Technologies will provide installation and configuration support, with the new vessels set to be delivered in 2019.{/mprestriction}
