Arctech Helsinki Shipyard has built four icebreaking vessels for Sovcomflot, the largest shipping company in Russia. One is a supply vessel, and three of them are stand-by vessels. All four benefit from the advanced Valmet DNA automation system.
|Location||The North-East Sakhalin offshore|
|Customer challenge||Safety and reliability requirements posed by harsh conditions.|
|Results||All four vessels benefit from the advanced Valmet DNA automation system. Since the number of alarms and amount of data is high in the automation system, redundancy of stations and networks is required to secure operation.|
|Solution||The delivery included Valmet DNA automation system with marine specific features. Valmet DNA Operate TEA, the Trend and Event Archive, provides users with history data in the form of trends. Further, the data can be replayed and analyzed. In the engine control room, the main tools for the operators are the displays with accurate, to-the-minute information. Valmet DNA’s alarm panels are placed in cabins, which means that the crew is always alerted to abnormal situations. So, the information flow remains uninterrupted.|
