Two contracts were signed for a Ro-Pax ferry for the Caledonian Maritime Assets of Scottish Limited (CMAL) and for two offshore vessels for one of the leading seismic companies
Imtech Marine will be responsible for the technical coordination and project management for the systems in the field of e-technology, including automation, switchgear, power distribution, lighting, and the entire cable network. In addition, Imtech Marine will reportedly plan, supply and install drive components such as converters, electric motors for thrusters and the power management. Internal and external communication via FleetBroadband, VSAT and GMDSS are as well as X-and S-band radar, ECDIS, compass, GPS and VDR a part of the navigational scope.
The two 127-metre long offshore vessels are scheduled for 2014 and will then be used throughout the world to discover and exploit oil and gas deposits beneath the seabed. They are especially designed for seismic operations and, in terms of efficiency, comfort, reliability and endurance, guarantee safe operation, the company claims, worldwide including the Arctic regions and in the roughest weather conditions.
Also for these seismic vessels Imtech Marine will undertake engineering, technical coordination, project management, supply and commissioning of e-technology, including cable networks, internal and external communications and navigation. Thomas Wolf, project manager at Imtech Marine Germany said: “In this challenging project, experience in the construction of seismic vessels is needed, in particular for the very special and unique needs of the electronic chart system and the autopilot.”
