The Wärtsilä BNWAS Platinum Bridge Navigational Watch Alarm System is both an advanced alarm system and monitoring system of “Navigator Fitness”.
By monitoring bridge activity by means of user interaction and physical movement in the bridge area (motion sensor), the system can detect operator disability and alert backup Navigators to the Bridge area, thus participating in the safe operation of the vessel to help avoiding accidents.
Backup Navigators can be alerted in a configurable way (following rules and regulations), i.e. captain’s cabin can be alerted in parallel to the bridge and different officers cabins can be selected to be on duty for 1.st stage back-up call alarms. All control and handling of alarm system, backup call functions and timer settings are performed at the Bridge Alarm Panel located centrally in the bridge console.
