Chinese newbuilds to be installed with Transas bridges

Transas’ office in China has agreed a contract to supply four complete bridges to newbuild vessels being constructed for PaxOcean Engineering Pte Ltd.

Each bridge consists of seven Multifunctional Display (MFD) workstations, with DNV NAUT – OSV (A) Class Notation.

The bridge equipment includes dual ECDIS, a 12KW X-Band Navi-Chart Radar, a 30KW S-Band Navi-Chart Radar and a Navi-Conning system that has been specially customised to include an Aft & Bow Docking Mode.

Slave MFDs will also be installed on the four UT755 PSVs.

All vessels will be built at PaxOcean Engineering (Zhuhai) Co. Ltd, Guangdong Province, China. Delivery is scheduled this year for the first two vessels, and in 2013 for the next two vessels.

The vessels were designed by Rolls Royce Norway.

In other news, Transas Electrotech Australia has completed installation of a Transas GMDSS Simulator at Hunter TAFE, a training academy in Newcastle, New South Wales.

The system will allow for classes of up to 12 students to train together, with one instructor station interfaced to the 12 student stations.

The simulator can be remotely supported through VPN access, to simplify maintenance and upgrade requirements, and is capable of simulating a range of GMDSS equipment.

The Radio Communications Simulator provides training and examination for General Operator Certificate (GOC) and Restricted Operator Certificate (ROC). Search and Rescue (SAR) operations and VTS operator training are also supported.
