This highly available solution controls and supervises the main systems of the ship by providing: alarm management, power management, auxiliaries and fluid management as main engine cooling, lubrication circuit, ballast, bilge, compressed air, fuel & oil, fire fighting pumps and fresh water management.
Supervision is carried out at bridge level by a SCADA system based on redundant Vijeo Citect and in various cabins by Magelis Touch panels with Vijeo designer human machine interface.
A high availability architecture communication network is implemented by 2 servers in hot stand-by, supported by an Ethernet ring with redundancy management, and optical fiber (Modbus RS485 with relevant bridge to Modbus TCP/IP when required)
Local acquisition is implemented by distributed I/O modules (Advantys STB), control part by main PLC Modicon Quantum, Premium or M580 in hot standby, and power management by dedicated PLC Modicon M340.
Thanks to a secured architecture, full supervision and control of main systems at several locations in the ship, this solution maximizes ship reliability and crew efficiency.
For higher availability and fast response time, the dedicated compact and hardened PLC achieves an efficient and optimized Power Management System (PMS) for generators that allows 20% energy saving.
Redundant SCADA servers and PLCs for 100% availability at first fault.
