March 4, 2020 – This is the first of two such vessels being constructed for the Royal Canadian Navy, the delivery of the first is scheduled for 2023.
With a length of 173.7 metres and a breadth of 24 metres, this multi-purpose Naval Vessel will be the largest ever constructed in Canada, and has a significant instrumentation requirement with more than 140 level & pressure transmitters, more than 30 flood detection switches, and associated termination modules. We are also expecting a future order for all tank level alarm switches.
The level transmitters we have supplied are our latest generation APT1000 configurable transmitters, which we have already equipped on a number of other Naval Vessel projects to great success. The APT1000 is manufactured from a choice of corrosion resistant materials, is capable of withstanding the toughest operating conditions, and is certified according to ATEX and IECEx regulations for installation in hazardous areas, making it the idea choice for this type of vessel.
