ply of Integrated Bridge Systems to the commercial maritime market. Based on

Furuno IBS products in Rolls-Royce ship systems and the use of Rolls-Royce

Automation and Control products, the companies will develop jointly elements of the IBS to improve information flow and to provide operator benefits with improved man-machine interfacing.

According to Rick Kane, president,

Rolls-Royce Marine Electrical Systems, the effort will start in the offshore busi- ness and evolve globally. Saab

Transponder Tech strengthened its dis- tribution network when it signed an agreement with Radio Holland Group for worldwide distribution and service for the SOLAS class A transponders.

Saab also announced the start of cooper- ation with Seagull A/S from Horten,

Norway to develop a CBT module for

AIS that will be provided with each delivery of our R4 AIS Transponder.

Simrad launched an Automatic

Identification System (AIS) package — the type-approved Simrad AI70. Star

Information Systems launched a new

B2B solution — a fleet and ship man- agement package — at NorShipping, a solution developed in concert with

ShipServ and MTS, and includes major vendors such as Unitor and MAN

B&W. STN Atlas Marine Electronics'

European Wheelmark-accredited Debeg 3400 UAIS has also now been type- approved for GPS operation by the

German Maritime & Hydrographic

Agency (BSH), enabling it to be con- nected to all standard navigation equip- ment for provision of 12-channel

Differential GPS data — at no addition- al cost. Transas has received a DNV type-approval certificate for its second- generation electronic chart display information system, Navi-Sailor 3000

ECDIS. Extended functionality of the unit includes integrated weather fore- casting, multiple chart display and user- selectable screen layout.

It was announced by Unitor that Hull 588/1, a 39,500-dwt chemical tanker being built in Poland for Odfjell ASA, is equipped with the largest nitrogen gen- erator that Unitor has ever delivered.

Based on IGS membrane technology, the system can deliver up to 3,750-cu. m. of nitrogen/hr. Germany's Voith has developed an optimized Voith-

Schneider-Propeller (VSP) for Platform

Supply Vessels (PSV). The company has designed and tested at the model basin

Marintek a new unit with improved blades for optimum free running effi- ciency. Vacon Pic of Finland introduced a series of completely modular AC drives for marine applications. Used for stepless speed control of asynchronous motors, the new Vacon NX series includes both air and liquid cooled units within the power range of 0.2 kW to 3

MW. The new Vacon NX frequency converters are based on a completely modular design with separate control and power sections and easily cus- tomized software. Benefits y are the high cooling efficiency of up to 95 per- cent, and a space savings of up to 80 percent. Wynn Marine unveiled its

Series 5010 Window Wash System — for both newbuild and retrofit projects.

It was designed to compliment Wynn's existing range, and is designed as a compact off-the-shelf module. [JRC I -''"it
