Control System for Ferry Vessels

Buquebus, based in Argentina, operates ferry services from Buenos Aires to Montevideo and Colonia moving around 2 million passengers per year. They operate the fastest ferry vessels in the world and bring a modern experience to the tourists of the region.

Buquebus had a history of control systems becoming obsolete and requiring service at peak times of the year for tourists. They needed a solution that was able to provide local support, local inventory, and complete system integration.

The change to ComAp controls became critical when seven years ago, a vessel went out of service due to an obsolete part no longer produced for the ferry monitoring service. It was a couple of weeks before the start of the tourist season, and the need for change was evident.

With ComAp controllers, they were able to design, build, install, and commission a new system with more features than original equipment in just a couple of weeks! This allowed  Buquebus to get the vessel back into service just-in-time for the tourist season.

Thanks to the daily reliability and security of its products, ComAp have continued together with its distributor Servintel International to win with shipbuilders. These vessels are sometimes chartered to other countries, so anywhere around the world, they could receive local support and get spare parts.
