New framework contract result of previous success

MJR Power and Automation has been appointed to deliver its leading marine services to support CalMac Ferries, the UK's largest ferry operator, with a series of upgrade projects planned over the next few years.

The three-year framework contract for the provision of electrical installations services. comes as a result of  MJR successfully delivering a series of contracts carrying out major electrical power and control upgrades and installations over the past 18 months during planned scheduled maintenance at shipyards across Scotland and the North of England.

Major upgrades include the propulsion and pitch control system with over 12000 metres of cable supplied, installed and tested as part of the delivery of electrical, control and data infrastructure upgrade completed on four ferries including one of CalMac’s flagship vessels, the MV Clansman Isle of Lewis.

The company also installed over 5000 metres of marine Cat6 cable for the new state of the art marine approved CCTV system which included the design, specification, installation and commissioning covering three ferries consisting of the largest vessels in the fleet, the Caledonian Isles.

Forming part of the CalMac resilience program, the new contract will see the ferry operator undertake major upgrades to modernise 33 of its ferries - currently operating 29 routes across the west coast of Scotland – including upgrading of main power, electrical and automation system infrastructure across the fleet.
