On April 3 and 4, two members of the Cameroon Navy visited Sainsel facilities in Madrid. The main purpose of this visit was to assess the operational functionality of the Integrated Navigation System NAVIS -12, designed and developed by Sainsel.
In March 2014 the first Canberra class landing helicopter dock (LHD) vessel victoriously accomplished the Sea Acceptance Test (SAT) in New South Wales and Victoria.
The ship supplied with Integrated Bridge System Console, a console which has been developed and manufactured by Sainsel, returned to Williamstown (Victoria) when prosperously finalized the Navigation and Propulsion System Test.
• Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) of the third unit
• Remittance of the second unit to Australia
On 3 of March, Sainsel successfully completed the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) of the third Integrated Bridge System Console (IBSC) for the destroyers of the Royal Australian Navy AWD program.
On September 23rd, Sainsel has successfully completed the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) for the Integrated Bridge Console of the second AWD at its facilities located in San Fernando de Henares (Madrid).
The console design has been based on the previously performed for the Spanish Navy F100 class frigates, carrying out the necessary changes to suit the Australian warships’ specific requirements. Another console designed for the first destroyer was already delivered on November 2012 and is currently in the process of installation onboard.
The WECDIS/PC equipment is a milestone for the Spanish Navy regarding the process of training and development for the navigation simulated practice. This equipment that has been delivered to Telvent for its integration into the Navigation Simulator located at ESENGRA Specialist School, shall allow Spanish Navy crew ground training in the operation and exploitation of the certified ECDIS/WECDIS navigation systems with which more than thirty surface and submarine military vessels are equipped.
On May 31st, Sainsel has delivered the Integrated Bridge System Console (IBSC) of the LHD01 – HMAS Canberra to BAE Systems at Williamstown shipyard in Australia. The console has been developed and manufactured by Sainsel under a contract with BAE Systems Australia, the prime contractor of the vessel.
Sainsel, as a Spanish company leader in Nautical Digital Cartography and Navigation Systems based on the ECDIS and WECDIS standards, will participate in the XVIII International Hydrographic Conference that will take place on 23-27 April 2012 at Monaco, collaborating with the Hydrographic Institute of the Spanish Navy by means of the installation of a modern Navigation System (based in the Sainsel product MiniWECDIS MNR-02W) aboard of the Hidrographic Ship “Tofiño”. This system includes functionality that fulfils the latest ECDIS requisites of the IMO and the latest WECDIS requisites of the NATO.
The splendid BAM “Meteoro”, the most modern vessel of the Spanish Navy built by Navantia, deserved the most brilliant solution for its commander’s support: the MiniWECDIS* MNR-02 developed by Sainsel.
