Cygnus making waves across seven shipyards

The Cygnus Wireless Alarm system has protected seven shipyards across the world, strengthening our presence in the shipbuilding industry further.

Working alongside major Norwegian distributor, Vestcom, we have supplied our alarm system during the construction of around 20 ships over the last year, including a 130-metre long krill vessel that will fish in the Antarctic, a number of luxury cruise ships and ferries.

The Cygnus radio system provides contractors with an efficient and versatile temporary alarm system to protect workers during the construction phase. It works on a mesh protocol which enables the system to overcome signal obstacles such as steel structures and other signal interferences, therefore offering advanced protection for both workers and ships.

Ferenç Szell, managing director at Vestcom, says: “We are delighted with the performance and connectivity range of the Cygnus alarm system. Every time the Cygnus alarm system has been activated on a ship, it has worked to the highest standard helping us to avoid any serious accidents.

“The fact that it has been installed across a variety of ships during the construction period is testament to how powerful and adaptable the system is. It’s the ideal solution for Vestcom as we are able to transport the whole system to the next project, thus saving us time and money.”
