Alewijnse Marine Wins Refit Contract

Systems integrator Alewijnse Marine Systems has been awarded the contract for the full electrical refit of the seismic vessel Polarcus Naila.

The ultra-modern, 12 streamer 3D/4D seismic vessel will arrive in February 2014 at the Damen-owned yard Shipdock Amsterdam for a refit scheduled to last 35 days.

The refit involves the replacement of the current thrusters. The ship repair and conversion yard Shipdock in Amsterdam has subcontracted the electrical repairs and modifications to Alewijnse Marine Systems, a leading systems integrator in the commercial, naval, offshore and superyacht sectors, covering all aspects of marine electrical engineering.

With just a five-week window in which to complete the project, Alewijnse will assemble a thirty-strong team of technicians to ensure that the work will be completed on time and to specification.

In its role in the refit, Alewijnse will work on a number of important systems on board Polarcus Naila. The main element will be the delivery, pulling, installation and connection of four kilometres of power cables for the new propulsion rooms.

Alewijnse has also been tasked with the supply and connection of new lighting, smoke alarms, telephones, breakers, davits and winches. There is also a series of modifications to be undertaken on a number of switch boards.

The company also announced next phase of the Asian strategy. During the Asia Pacific Maritime 2014 show (Singapore), Alewijnse Marine Systems will present the next phase in its strategy to supply its electro technical services to shipyards and operators in South-East Asia.
