Citadel UPS: The AMP Power Protection solution helping protect vessels from Pirates
Citadel UPS – Secure DC Power for Anti-Piracy Emergency Communication
The AMP Power Protection Citadel UPS is helping protect vessels and their crew from the threat of modern piracy.
A ship’s Citadel is a safe room where the crew of the ship can hide in case there is a pirate attack on the ship or when the pirates are aboard the ship. In recent times, the usage and incorporation of the citadel method in ships to protect the ship’s crew against maritime piracy has increased. The citadel anti-piracy method is strongly recommended to be installed in ships as per the regulations of the International Maritime Security Centre.
Blue Sky Network (BSN) came to AMP Power Protection looking for a marine UPS solution to support their Citadel Safe-Room Iridium/GPS Communications system to protect vessels against the threat of modern piracy.
The AMP solution is a 24VDC UPS in a rugged IP45 enclosure and built to exceed NATO 72 hour requirements. Over 200 of these units have been sold and installed within ‘safe rooms’ built into armoured areas on ships now cruising the world’s oceans.
Crews on board any ship with a Citadel UPS solution can be reassured that should they be met with pirates, a fast and successful rescue is only a few hours away, alleviating any drawn out hostage situation.
