Malaysian fast crew boats have Kentec onboard
NGV Tech of Malaysia is a world-class builder of sea craft and vessels with a long established track record for products adhering to the highest standards of marine safety. NGV’s shipbuilding expertise includes coastguard vessels, government patrol craft, hydrographic survey vessels, and oil rig crew boats.
With vessel certification for their Fire Alarm & Detection systems the most crucial commissioning criteria, NGV has chosen Kentec’s Syncro ASM single loop, analogue addressable, fire control panel at the heart of their latest project – a 34m aluminium Fast Offshore Crew Boat, with a 50 passenger capacity, built for a Malaysian oilrig company. The system is supported by Hochiki open protocol fire data communications, and integrated to up to 50 Hochiki devices for each vessel, installed in the wheelhouse, main deck, below decks and the engine room, as required by relevant compliances.
The Fast Crew Boats are built under BV Classification and the fire and safety equipment installed in accordance with IMO and HSC code standards. The Syncro ASM is certified as compliant to the Maritime Equipment Directorate (MED) and approved by ABS, CSS, Det Norske Veritas, Germanischer Lloyd, Lloyds Register and Korean register. The choice of Syncro ASM by NGV was determined by the ease with which the fire control panels can be networked to provide scalable fire alarm systems, suitable for many classes of vessel.
