SELEX Elsag to supply BNWAS to Boston Putford Offshore
Basildon, 2 October 2012 – SELEX Elsag Marine,
a Finmeccanica company, has received an order from Boston Putford
Offshore Safety to equip 24 vessels with Bridge Navigation Watch
Alarm Systems (BNWAS).
BNWAS meet the requirements for ships to
possess a monitoring system that provides a back-up to the role of
Officer of the Watch by automatically alerting the Master or other
qualified personnel if the Officer of the Watch is rendered
incapable of performing regular and consistent watch duties.
The system also provides an Emergency Call
facility, enabling the Officer of the Watch, or other personnel, to
call for immediate assistance if required.
The first-stage alarms will be fitted in the
bridge wheelhouse; with secondary-stage alarms for the officers’
cabins; and a final third-stage alarm for the crew reception
Boston Putford Safety Standby vessels provide
a valuable service in a safety role in support of workers on oil
and gas platforms in the North Sea; and are ready to provide
immediate assistance in the event of incidents.
