Marine automation and instrumentation specialists CMR Group said
it has secured an order from industrial conglomerate Kongsberg
Maritime AS for new closed-circuit television (CCTV) video
surveillance systems for two new semi-submersible heavy lift,
construction and accommodation vessels.
The deal, which includes spare parts and maintenance support,
will see the supply and installation of CCTV systems for the OOS
Serooskerke and OOS Walcheren, which are being built for China
Merchants Heavy Industry (Jiangsu) Co. Ltd. (CMHI).
The first vessel is planned for a launch in Korea in 2018 with
the second one set to follow at the beginning of 2019.
The CMR system, which will be delivered to CMHI in Shanghai, is
part of contract work being undertaken by Kongsberg to supply and
integrate all the vessels' electrical, telecommunications and
integrated control systems.
Housed within IP rated, stainless steel enclosure housings, the
CCTV systems will monitor hazardous areas and other critical
components and machinery and will be designed and built to
withstand the harsh and demanding operational conditions of the
marine and offshore environment.
More than 140 cameras are being supplied as part of the deal,
which will make it one of the largest CCTV systems of its type.
