The vessels have been built to meet the highest Class Notations from RINA and ABS, including the “Comfort Class”. ABB’s user-friendly and easy to maintain system has been designed according to the strict requirements for a safe and efficient plant operation and management.

The integrated automation system, based on open system architecture, includes: seven operator stations, two main controllers (starboard and port), four local controllers for main engines safety system, twenty one remote input/output units. It manages more than 3000 I/O control points giving to the operators access to plant monitoring and control trough around 100 video pages.
