Jumbo Maritime, part of the JSI Alliance with SAL Heavy Lift and Intermarine, has turned to Alewijnse for the upgrade of the alarm, monitoring, and control systems (AMCS) on its heavy lift vessels. Ship managers need to monitor vessel systems around the clock to optimize efficiency and sustainability. Alewijnse has developed monitoring systems that enable quick intervention when necessary.

Jumbo’s heavy lift vessel, Jumbo Jubilee is receiving upgrades to its alarm, monitoring, and control systems (AMCS). Fairplayer is receiving a new AMCS that is fully adapted to the new IP code and SPS notation. With Jumbo Javelin, Alewijnse is modifying the existing AMCS to conform to the essential SPS notation. This regulation requires that Special Purpose Ships (SPS) with a deadweight of over 500 tonnes and with more than twelve passengers for industrial or IP project purposes must adhere to a special high safety standard.

“Alewijnse’s improvements will help Jumbo Maritime advance their digitalization goals by making better decisions based on data and taking action using information collected from ship and critical onboard systems. These will further optimize the maintenance, performance and energy efficiency of the ships,” Mark Snijders, Manager Purchasing and Contracting at Jumbo Maritime, said.

“Safety is a top priority for both Jumbo and Alewijnse,” explains Alewijnse COO Tom Milder. ” Many customers in the offshore and other maritime markets place a strong emphasis on it and it is essential that they have confidence in the safety of both our systems and our working practices. At Alewijnse, safety is number one, which goes hand in hand with good results. This puts us at the forefront of the maritime market.”

The projects for Jumbo are already underway. At Alewijnse’s headquarters in Nijmegen, a team of specialists is working on the adjustments for the SPS notation and the engineering department is updating the alarm and monitoring systems. Following a factory acceptance test (FAT), Alewijnse will install and commission the systems on board, the company said in its statement.

Once delivered, Jumbo will deploy the ships for heavy transport and installation work in the offshore wind industry and world-wide deep-water installation operations.
