Kongsberg integrated technology chosen for 10 uasc owned ulstr-large boxships under construction at HHI

‘Full Picture’ deliveries for some of the world’s largest and most environmentally friendly container ships. 

Kongsberg Maritime has secured contracts with a value of NOK 150 Million to deliver fully integrated navigation and automation systems for a series of 10 container vessels ordered by United Arab Shipping Company (UASC).

The five 14,000 TEU class and five 18,800 TEU class vessels will be among the largest, most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly containerships ever built. They are scheduled for delivery by builder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) during the first half of 2015. UASC has an option for 7 more vessels to the same specification under its contract with HHI.

Kongsberg Maritime will deliver ‘Full picture’ integrated vessel control systems including navigation, communication, and automation for machinery and propulsion systems. Included in the KONGSBERG scope of supply is also a state of the art, Vessel Performance System, which monitors and provides accurate, detailed decision support advice for operators regarding energy efficiency, fuel usage and optimal sailing.

The K-Chief automation system and Vessel Performance System integrate with the electronically-controlled main engines, which were chosen to maximize fuel efficiency, and reduce noise, vibration and carbon emissions by automatically controlling fuel consumption to suit sailing speed and sea conditions.

“We are proud that United Arab Shipping Company and Hyundai Heavy Industries selected the ‘Full Picture’ for these class leading and environmentally friendly vessels,” comments Leif Kristian Weum, VP Sales, Merchant Marine, Kongsberg Maritime AS. “Our integrated navigation and automation technology is used by a significant proportion of the vessels in the merchant Marine sector, and with substantial projects like this, we continue to increase our market share with the major shipbuilders and owners worldwide.”
