The 2012 build Danish ferry Mjølner Fur was experiencing problems with the vessels original azimuth propulsion control system to the extend where the manufacturer of the system had given up trying to solve the problems. The main issue was that the ferry would momentarily loose the control of one of the vessels two azimuth thrusters during harbor maneuvers. Furthermore, the maintenance cost of the system was deemed unsustainable. Consequently, Lyngaa Marine was invited to inspect the problem and, subsequently, was invited to create a proposal for a new propulsion control system. Lyngaa Marine was awarded the contract for the new system at the end of May 2021 and the system was developed over the summer period. The brand new LMP2100 Azimuth system was installed, tested, and commissioned in a few days in September 2021.
The Operations Manager of the Fursund Færgeri, Anne-Marie Mortensen explains:
“We are very satisfied with the performance of our new propulsion control system. The crew and I are impressed with the simplicity and the functionality of the system. It is very intuitive, and we have experienced no problems with the transit to the new system. With up to 72 daily round trips the reliability is important to us, and we firmly believe that we have made the right choice”.
