Research Vessel Polarstern

Alfred Wegener Institute / Germany

The RV Polarstern, operated by the Alfred Wegener  Institute,  has completed nearly 300 important scientific expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic since 1982. 

SMK-Elektrotechnik with its 50 years of experience in ship internal communication equipment was responsible for upgrading and installing the internal communications system onboard the RV Polarstern. The retrofit was completed at the Lloyd Werft in Bremerhaven Germany and was supervised by a Zenitel service engineer for the installation of the new Exigo PAGA System which re-uses existing cabling through Zenitel’s Flowire technology.

FSRU BW Tatiana

El Salvador

In November 2021, BW Tatiana was officially named and dedicated, becoming the first floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) to be deployed in Central America’s smallest country. El Salvador currently relies heavily on imported fuel oil to generate power.

Zenitel recently completed a full retrofit on the internal communication systems onboard BW Tatiana. BW Tatiana has become a part of Energía del Pacífico’s Acajutla FSRU project.
