Servowatch’s IPMS selected for RNZN MSC

8th May 2017 - 14:14 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Servowatch will supply its Integrated Platform Management System (IPMS) to the Royal New Zealand Navy's (RNZN's) Maritime Sustainment Capability (MSC) vessel being built by Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in South Korea, the company announced on 4 May.

The MSC tanker, which is set to replace the 30-year-old tanker HMNZS Endeavour, can refuel two ships at a time. The new MSC tanker will have a displacement of 24,000t and length of over 160m. It will become the largest naval vessel in the RNZN fleet.

Servowatch Systems will supply an IPMS control and monitoring package for the vessels' propulsion plant, electric power plant, auxiliary/ancillary system, expertise battle damage control system and onboard training system.

Wayne Ross, CEO, Servowatch, said: 'With vessels increasing in complexity while simultaneously reducing crew sizes, systems integration is key to ensuring the functionality of critical equipment.

'Servowatch has introduced its most powerful IPMS solution allowing more commercial off-the-shelf product integration. It reduces platform cost, integration time and commissioning, while retaining the survivability and power of the original Servowatch product.'
