The Norwegian Getaway, which can accommodate up to 4,000 passengers, is the sister vessel to the Norwegian Breakaway, which was launched last year and is equipped with an identical system. The 324m liner was built by Meyer Werft at its Papenburg shipyard in northern Germany.
“Following our successful system installations on Norwegian Breakaway, L-3 is extremely proud to have completed this major undertaking for the second of the two largest liners built in Germany,” said Ulrich Weinreuter, president of L-3 MSI.
The NACOS Platinum navigation system comprises five X- and S-band radars serially linked to eleven main Multipilot multifunction workstations for combined displays of ARPA radar, ECDIS conning and dynamic positioning operations, in addition to those for automatic steering and voyage planning. The touch-screen units are in turn connected to secondary stations for selectable displays of data located at port and starboard wings as well as the captain’s cabin.
The Norwegian Gateway was also equipped with VALMATIC Platinum, an Integrated Automation System (IAS) developed by associate L-3 Valmarine. It includes a machinery system, power management and HVAC systems, a Safety Management System (SMS) and Emergency Shutdown (ESD) system, as well as an Information Management System (IMS).
