Delivery of WECDIS Console (certified under the latest ECDIS requirements of the IMO) on the board of Frigate “Navarra” (F-85)
On June 9 Harbor Acceptance Tests of CONAM NAV/ C1 WECDIS Console of the frigate “Navarra” were performed. The tests were accomplished with satisfactory results under the supervision of ISEMER, Sainsel´s Qualified Engineers and a Quality Assurance Representative.
This completes the entire process of modernization and installation of WECDIS Navigation System on the frigate, which started in March of 2014. This process has required a great technological effort to adapt the older system to the latest requirements of ECDIS certification of the IMO.
The frigate “Navarra” (F-85), which is the fifth of the series of six frigates of “Santa María” class (Spanish version of the “Oliver Hazard Perry” class from U.S.), will highlight from 9 of June as the only one of all is provided with the modern version of Navigation System. This advanced technological solution will facilitate and increase the safety of navigation at the moment of confrontation of its imminent departure due to the ATALANTA operation.
