Pasha Hawaii's pure car/truck carrier (PCTC) Jean Anne has received an electronics upgrade, including the replacement of her navigation system.

The update was performed by Mackay Marine in Vancouver, B.C., in just under three weeks, including time for sea trial and crew training. Project Manager Ben Staggs, and installers Hamid Nayebi and Don Kamachi, handled the entire retrofit without complications, removing the older electronics and replacing them with all-new Furuno equipment.

Dual X-Band FAR2228 and S-Band FAR2238S Radar ensure that the 579-foot, 37,548-gross-ton Jean Anne's crew will have detection at every range and in all weather conditions, Furuno said.. Two 23" FMD3300 ECDIS stations with FAP3000 Track Control Systems, along with a 24" widescreen FMD3100 ECDIS, provide chart handling, route-planning and navigation. The chart engine allows Jean Anne's crew to seamless pan and zoom the chart. Multiple sensor adapters are interfaced via Ethernet connection, creating an integrated shipboard network that connects the Radar and ECDIS systems to redundant GP170 GPS receivers, a precision DS80 Doppler Speed Log, FE800 IMO Navigation Echo Sounder, and a complete VR7000 Voyage Data Recorder. The new electronics were installed and integrated with existing Furuno GMDSS safety radio suite and other Furuno equipment.

Launched in 2005, the Jean Anne is a fully enclosed roll-on/roll-off (Ro/Ro) carrier that serves Hawaii from the U.S. mainland. She is capable of transporting 2,500 automobiles on her ventilated decks. Decks 4, 6, and 8 are reinforced for oversize cargo, such as construction, agricultural or military equipment, and can accommodate 125,000 square feet of such.
