ABB launches C-CAMs automation solution

ABB launches C-CAMs automation solution

(Posted on 28/10/21)

ABB’s newly launched C-CAMs automation solution applies to vessel systems, power management, cargo control and tank gauging, improving efficiency and safety by enabling faster troubleshooting and maintenance as well as enhanced situational awareness. It is the first marine automation solution to feature a mobile application overview of system data, with the ABB Ability™ Edgenius Operations Data Manager providing access to the alarm and monitoring data regardless of the user’s location onboard.

“C-CAMs integrates easily with relevant vessel systems and can be accessed and serviced remotely to facilitate maintenance and repair,” said Stian Torkildsen, Global Product Line Manager, Automation & Control Solutions, ABB Marine & Ports. “In addition, modern connectivity options and interfaces allow crew to access automation-system data throughout the ship via mobile devices, so the solution benefits onboard personnel as well as the vessel owner.”

The intuitive solution has been developed based on ABB’s extensive expertise in automation. True to ABB standards, the solution is cyber secure by design and built on reliable and robust hardware that enables a long service life for all components. High uptime is further supported by system redundancy, while safety margins are higher than for comparable systems in the market.

Thanks to the I/O system design with spring terminals, C-CAMs is easy to retrofit, and installation costs are approximately 50 percent lower than for conventional marine automation systems.

“We are proud to build on ABB’s long history in power and automation technologies and expand our automation offering to the oceangoing vessels in the marine commercial fleet,” said Rune Braastad, Business Line Manager Marine Systems, ABB Marine & Ports. “The C-CAMs automation system offers major benefits for shipyards and shipowners, enabling faster engineering, installation and commissioning compared to traditional automation systems, ultimately resulting in a lower total cost of ownership.”

As part of ABB’s ongoing efforts to drive marine digitalization through leading-edge technology and unparalleled service, the C-CAMs scope of supply comprises operator stations, I/O cards and CPUs with cabinets, network equipment and an alarm and extension system. Spares and technical support are accessible worldwide. Shipowners can also specify the inclusion of ABB’s Power Energy Management System (PEMS™), which ensures the optimal use of a vessel’s total power resources to promote safe, efficient and environmentally friendly operations.

ABB is a leading global technology company that energizes the transformation of society and industry to achieve a more productive, sustainable future. By connecting software to its electrification, robotics, automation and motion portfolio, ABB pushes the boundaries of technology to drive performance to new levels. With a history of excellence stretching back more than 130 years, ABB’s success is driven by about 105,000 talented employees in over 100 countries.
