Automation for Navy Ships and Dredgers


Automation for Navy Ships and Dredgers

Imtech (Holland based provider of technical services) has been commissioned by the Jan De Nul Groep and the wharf Schelde Marine Bouw to automate a number of dredgers and naval vessels. Imtech Marine & Offshore division acquired the orders worth a total of 16 million Euro. It includes the automation of navigation and hydrographic functions on two new naval vessels HMS Snellius and HMS Luymes for the Dutch Royal Navy. Both vessels will be fitted with Imtech’s patented UniMACS system and digital nautical charts. An automatic integrated hydrographic recording and processing system will also be incorporated.

Imtech is also responsible for the integrated dredging automation, navigation and communications system for two 11,300 m³ Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers. Both dredgers, which are being built by IZAR (Bilbao, Spain), will be fitted with UniMACS systems. The dredgers will also be equipped with an automatic identification and ship registration system, as well as a number of multifunctional workstations for the engine room and dredging visual monitoring. The dredgers will be completed at the end of 2003.
