Mechanical and electrical services for turnkey installations
Alandia Engineering delivers turnkey installation, including all mechanical and electrical work.
The company was awarded two turnkey contracts for vessels Allure of the Seas and sister ship Oasis of the Seas, which was at the time the largest and most innovative cruise ships in the world.

For this project, Alandia supplied mechanical and electrical design, manufacturing of prefabrications, installation of all equipment, piping, HVAC, insulation and all electrical works, including high-voltage connection. This work took approximately 80,000 man hours.
Both contracts were successfully delivered on time, without any issues and in excellent condition.

Large-scale retrofit services for ships
A collaboration between Kongsberg Maritime and Alandia Engineering saw the complete installation and commissioning of an integrated bridge and automation solution during a large-scale retrofit of the Saipem 7000, took place in Stavanger and Rotterdam between October 2012 and March 2013.
Kongsberg Maritime installed a significant package consisting of the latest generation of its offshore product line, including K-Pos, K-Bridge, K-Thrust, and K-Chief 700.
The automation segment of the retrofit included the upgrade of 60 field cabinets and more than 30 new consoles for the engine control room and bridge area, which introduced Saipem 7000 to the latest monitoring, control and power management possibilities of Kongsberg Maritime’s established offshore automation solution, K-Chief 700.
In addition, the existing network was upgraded to include fibre-optics, with 35,000m of new cables installed in total. The integrated control system consists of approximately 10,000 I/O signals, which enables the operator to monitor and control Saipem 7000’s 12 engines and 12 thrusters, including auxiliary systems.
