SAM equips Carnival Breeze

Hamburg-based SAM Electronics and its associate group company, L-3 Valmarine of Norway, report that they have completed the delivery of integrated navigation and automation control systems to the 130,000-gt Carnival Breeze, Carnival Cruise Lines’ latest flagship.

The 306 metre-long vessel, delivered at the end of May by Fincantieri’s Monfalcone yard, will use SAM’s NACOS Platinum navigation assembly to provide a range of ship management functions using a shared set of standardised workstations with multi-function displays supported by a common operational network.

The complete system comprises dual S-Band and X-Band IP radars linked by an Ethernet network to six Multipilot workstations, each of which can be operated as a radar or ECDIS while also providing conning functions.

A further two Multipilot consoles are additionally assigned for specific ECDIS and conning operations.

L-3 Valmarine’s Valmatic Platinum automated system is integrated with the SAM Electronics’ NACOS assembly, and is able to handle around 20,000 input/output signals controlled by six processing stations covering seven different fire zones.

Operator control is via ten multi-function workstations variously sited at strategic control points such as the engine control room, ship’s bridge and officer cabins.

A supplementary Information Management System (IMS), which includes a one-year historical database as well as analysis tools, reporting and diary functions, is also available for optimising ship’s operational performance.
