Your maritime automation partner
2. Your maritime automation partner
With several years of experience in delivering auto-
mation solutions for the global maritime industry,
Logimatic is the obvious choice when you must
select an automation partner.
Our professional staff has through several projects
obtained unique know-how within maritime automa-
tion solutions as well as maritime design of larger
We have carried out projects for various types of
ships such as:
• Gas tankers
• Chemical tankers
• Bulk carriers
• Container vessels
• Naval ships
We have vast experience with significant automa-
tion projects and we are system integrator in all
phases of a project:
• Project management
- Completion and finance
• Design and specification
- Specification of solution
- Hardware and software design
- Engineering, operator stations, PLC
- Administration tools, censors gauges,
• Installation and implementation
• Quality control
Who are our customers?
We have delivered numerous automation solutions
to different segments within the maritime industry.
However, our customers are typically identified as:
• Naval shipyards
• Commercial shipyards
• Shipping companies/ship owners
We have e.g. developed an IPMS system (Integrated
Platform Management System) for naval ships that is
used by the Danish Navy. The system is used at the
Navy’s Flexible Support Vessels and will beinstalled at
the new Frigates.
Based on our IPMS solution, we have also developed a
CMAS system (Control Monitoring Alarm System) with
commercial ships as target group.
IPMS is a common computer based platform integrating
the following applications:
• Power management
• Propulsion control
• Ship systems automation
• Ship systems remote monitoring and control
• Alarm system including Extension Alarm Panels
• Damage management
• Conning displays
• Loading and Stability Computer
• CCTV camera system
The type approved Integrated Platform Management
System (IPMS) to navy ships is based on Commercial,
off-the-shelf (COTS) products. The system can be sup-
The system is configured with COTS products and
consists of a number of PLCs and input/output that are
placed in outstations on various positions onboard the
ship close to the physical censors and actuators.
All outstations are connected through a redundant fiber
network that enables communication even though a
network error should occur.
The operating interface is realized through marine
approved PCs that are placed in the control room, at
3. Product development
In recent years, our product development has
enabled our customers to give input to our
development plans. We regard the input from
customers as an indispensable vehicle in our
drive to make a better solution.
We use technologies that are scalable and
future proof. The bullets below are just some
of the technologies that we use:
- Allen Bradley
- Siemens S7
- Factory Link / Monitor
- Vijeo Citect
- Microsoft SQL
- Microsoft Access
Why work with us?
We wish to be regarded as a profes-
sional and loyal partner. The custom-
ers’ needs are our starting point,
and with this philosophy combined
with our staff’s know-how of our
• Constructive dialogue and pro-
fessional project management
• A high quality, scalable solu-
• Professional support and a
high level of service
Hence, many of our custom-
ers consider us as their
ideal automation partner
and return to us with new
projects. This leads us to
believe that we bring
value to our customers
and strengthen their
At one of our gas tankers,
Gerda Kosan we had prob-
lems repairing the cargo
alarm system. This because it
was phased out and no spare
parts were available.
We contacted Logimatic to
assist us solving the problem,
and they inspected the alarm
system onboard the vessel.
After a week, Logimatic
came with a suggestion how
their CMAS system could
replace the old alarm system,
and this without changing
the existing aux equipment.
A quotation was delivered
together with the suggestion.
After Logimatic had done
their preparations, one
automation engineer joined
the vessel and installed the new
alarm system on a short voyage
between 2 European ports.
Since the day Logimatic installed
the new alarm system, we have
not experienced any problems
with the alarm system.
We are satisfied with the work
carried out by Logimatic, and
especially when keeping in mind,
that often retrofit installations
are more difficult to handle
than new installations
Logimatic was carrying out
the job in a professional way
from beginning to the end.

the bridge as well as other strategic sites onboard the
ship. The operating stations are also connected through
a redundant fiber network, on which it is the aim to
keep the plant running for as long as possible in case of
damage on the plant.
Based on the know-how used in the IPMS solution
we also offer an automation solution called Control
Monitoring Alarm System (CMAS).
CMAS is developed for commercial ships, and we have
worked on various projects for both:
Our solutions are based on standard products (COTS)
with type approvals for maritime use and we use stand-
ard functionality whenever possible, which shorten
both implementation and go-live.
Through the years we have delivered various CMAS
solutions. Hence, we have experience in participating
in a partly or complete replacement of an automation
solution regarding retrofit.
By retrofit projects our experienced staff will start with
the current installation and make a project proposal
that is both technical and financial attractive for the
The CMAS solution for commercial ships is very flexible.
It can be designed and expanded as needed.
A common CMAS project will be based on the follow-
• One or several terminals with touch display
• Decentralized alarm panels that are placed onboard
the ship (e.g. bridge/ECR)
• Historical alarm log
• Remote connection through satellite/GSM
Service and support
Onboard your ship, the demand for timely, professional
help-desk services is always high. To address these vary-
ing needs now and in the future, we have our Service
Support team, specifically designed to help you maximize
the efficiency of your automation solution. This service
combines the latest technology with a staff that has deep
application knowledge and technical experience - a win-
ning formula when it comes to reducing system errors.
