Roxtec unveils fire stop for cable bundles

 In order to meet the huge and unsatisfied demand for efficient firestops for entire cable bundles, cable and pipe transit specialist Roxtec introduces the GK Multi-cable fire collar.

“This fire collar is designed for use in entries with high cable density in decks and bulkheads in fire rated divisions above the waterline,” says Roger Johansson, Executive Vice President and Business Area Manager Marine & Offshore at Roxtec. “It is certified to A-60 marine fire rating and easy to use when you want to ensure protection onboard ships and vessels.”

The GK Multi-cable fire collar is tested according to type approval test guidelines as well as to SOLAS/IMO regulations, and it is both RoHs and REACH compliant. It is quick, easy and safe to use with multiple cables, entire cable bundles and busbars.

“It is cost-efficient thanks to its great fill ratio and since you do not have to separate any bundled cables,” says Roger Johansson.


Valmet to upgrade control and monitoring systems on Finnish research vessel

Valmet will upgrade the control and machinery monitoring system of Aranda, a Finnish marine research vessel, to meet current needs as part of a renovation project for the vessel. Valmet's delivery includes the upgrade of the Valmet DNA control and machinery monitoring system, training and commissioning. The system is used to control and monitor the vessel's machinery and monitor alarms

The order was placed by Telesilta Oy, a Finnish company responsible for integrating electrification and the machinery monitoring system with other systems on the vessel. Prior to this order, Telesilta and Valmet have closely cooperated on many ship projects. Automated vessels include the harbor icebreaker Ahto, connection ferry Otava and oil pollution control vessel Hylje. Currently, the two companies are carrying out a comprehensive project on Molslinjen's RoPax vessel that is under construction by Rauma Marine Constructions Oy at its Rauma shipyard.

"As renovation projects are often technically very challenging, we wanted to have a product that we know well for our system. Successful cooperation with Valmet and its earlier experience with the original system on the vessel were two main reasons in favor of choosing Valmet DNA," says Kari Laulajainen, Managing Director, Telesilta.

"Upgrading the control and machinery monitoring system increases the reliability of this advanced vessel. One of Valmet DNA system advantages is its easy upgradability to the latest technology," says Heikki Tanner, Sales Manager, Automation, Valmet.
