AUGUST 24, 2012 — Imtech Marine has won contracts from German shipbuilder Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) to supply services in relation to two of the newbuilding programs under way at the shipyard: the 116 m Ropax ferry on order for Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) and the two seismic vessels on order for Western Geco.
Axel Rothe, General Manager Imtech Marine Germany: "We thank FSG for their trust and look forward to our cooperation on these challenging projects which will be the beginning of a future strategic collaboration."
For the Ropax ferry, Imtech Marine will be responsible for e-technology engineering, technical coordination and project management for systems that include automation, switchgear, power distribution, lighting, and the entire cable network. In addition, Imtech Marine will plan, supply and install drive components such as converters, electric motors for thrusters and the power management. Imtech will also supply navigation and communications systems including FleetBroadband, VSAT and GMDSS, X-and S-band radar, ECDIS, compass, GPS and VDR.
For the Western Geco seismic vessels, Imtech Marine's responsibilities cover e-technology engineering, technical coordination, project management, supply and commissioning, including cable networks, internal and external communications and navigation.
Thomas Wolf, Project Manager at Imtech Marine Germany, comments: "In this challenging project innovative solutions and 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. Through various past projects in this area, we are well prepared for this task."
