Chesapeake Commissions PSM to Install Tank Gauging System on America

Chesapeake Shipbuilding contacted us because they needed a complete tank gauging system on their newest build for American Cruise Lines, the ‘America’.

The ‘America’ is American Cruise Lines’ latest paddlewheeler, designed with traditional Victorian-style accents, it elegantly blends a traditional appearance with modern features and amenities. While the new ship is adorned with gleaming woodwork, brass fixtures, and histoic decor, it is constructed with the latest in cruise ship technology.


We were able to install the VPM4300 central monitor which was partnered with sensors in a total of twenty tanks for fuel, potable water and sewage. This was an unusual installation for us as the VPM display is not usually intended for so many tanks. However, mounted in the Pilot House where space was at a premium, the VPM provided a compact but comprehensive display of the status of all the tanks, complete with visual and audible annunciation of any high or low level alarm conditions.


Little onboarding commissioning was required because Chesapeake provided us with tank sounding data, meaning the system could be despatched pre-configured to their requirements.


The ‘America’ set sale on her maiden voyage in May 2016 and we were delighted to have played a role in its build.
