CBG Systems, an Australian based specialist in the marine insulation and lightweight passive fire protection, announced that in addition to its ongoing contracts for the JHSV platform it has now secured a contract for the insulation of the flight deck of the next 7 JHSV vessels (Hulls 633 to 639) with the US Navy.
The scope of works includes the supply and installation of its Lightweight Stainless (LWS) System for passive fire protection. The LWS provides weight savings when compared with conventional insulation systems, low glare for safe helicopter landing, excellent finish and easy maintenance which translates into significantly lower maintenance and operating costs to the ship owner and operator while maintaining the highest standards of fire protection integrity.
The system is an iteration of CBG’s newly developed Rapid Access Navy–30 (RAN-30) which was specifically developed for application on navy ships and tested to withstand hydrocarbon fires and shock in accordance with US Navy standards.
