The packages include platform automation and integrated bridge systems for the twin, 105-metre SIGMA PKR 10514 Guided Missile Frigates, the first of which is already under construction for the Indonesian Navy (TNI AL) at Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) in the Netherlands and PT PAL (Persero) Shipyard in Indonesia.
Alewijnse is also providing project and site management services at the two building locations, as well as design, engineering, programming, installation and commissioning services.
Alewijnse is also responsible for the complete integrated bridge systems from design to final delivery.
Alewijnse engineers are working at Damen as work continues on the first vessel, and a team of engineers is also now permanently based at the DSNS yard at Vlissingen, working on detailed engineering.
"We’re very pleased that Damen chose us to collaborate with them on this project for these highly sophisticated vessels," said Alewijnse CEO Dick Alewijnse.
"Naval units depend completely on their electrical systems to operate and survive under the most hostile conditions and we are delighted that Damen selected us based on our engineering expertise and track record of completing projects on time and to budget."
"We first started working with DSNS in the naval shipbuilding sector in 2004; initially on the Dutch Holland class patrol vessels and more recently on the construction of the Joint Support Ship, in which we are currently fully involved. We are very proud that we have now been granted an even larger scope of supply, encompassing full vessel engineering, automation systems and integrated bridge systems."
