PGZ SW hires OSI to supply INTS for Polish Kormoran MCMVs
OSI Maritime Systems (OSI) has been awarded a contract by PGZ Stocznia Wojenna (PGZ SW) Shipyard to provide ntegrated navigation and tactical systems (INTS) to the Polish Navy’s Kormoran minehunters (vessels four to six).
Under the terms of the contract, OSI will continue on from the previous agreement and design, build, deliver, and install another three INTSs for the Polish Navy Kormoran-class mine countermeasures vessel program.
The program is part of the Polish naval modernisation plan and will operate in the waters of the Polish exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and participate in NATO’s countermeasure group in the Baltic and the North Sea. In June this year, Poland ordered three additional Kormoran II-class minehunters.
INTS is a fully scalable, IMO and NATO STANAG 4564 WECDIS-compliant integrated bridge system. OSI added that “INTS has Marine Equipment Directive (MED) Type Approval certification from DNV GL as an Integrated Navigation System. Among key industry standards that are met by INTS are MSC.252 (83) and IEC 61924-2 for INS and MSC.302(87) for Bridge Alert Management”.
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to continue to support the Polish Navy and equally proud of the working relationship with PGZ SW,” said Ken Kirkpatrick, President and CEO. “Kormoran has been a very rewarding project.“
“Over 25 NATO and Allied fleets operate using OSI integrated navigation and tactical solutions, which translates to navigation commonality and standard to a level that is on par with many of the world’s leading navies,” stated Jim Davison, Vice President of Business Development.
