Wärtsilä’s Nacos Platinum Integrated Navigation Automation Control System has been selected for a series of three ‘mega-class’ container vessels being built for French ship owner CMA CGM at the HHIC-Phil yard in Subic Bay, Philippines. The contract with Wärtsilä was signed in August.
The Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum platform is based on an Ethernet-based network and covers all aspects of integrated bridge and machinery monitoring and control systems. It combines all relevant navigation and automation tasks under a single HMI (Human Machine Interface) umbrella. The system uses modern ring topology and provides the flexibility to navigate, control, and monitor the vessel from different multi-functional operator stations.
Wärtsilä has earlier received orders for propulsion and other equipment for these same vessels. The scope of supply includes a Wärtsilä X92 2-stroke main engine, Wärtsilä Airguard aft seals, Sternguard forward seals, Sternsafe bearings, and Line Shaft bearings. Delivery of the Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled to commence in May 2016.
