All SOLAS/Class rated vessels are required to be fitted with Main and Backup Steering facilities and components, which have been Approved and Certificated commensurate with relevant flag and Classification Society performance and reliability standards. Accordingly, all Main Steering System components designed & manufactured by Navitron Systems Ltd. have been fully Approved by Classification Societis (DNV GL, ABS, RMRS, RRR etc.), and may be configured for complete Main Steering console configurations and/or stand alone component use as appropriate. Whilst a typical Main Steering console might comprise Full Follow Up, Non Follow Up and Override Steering Controls etc. the final content can be chosen to suit the Steering System(s) involved (single or dual rudder, SOLAS or Non SOLAS etc.) thus a modular and cost effective range of Steering Control Panel variants are available.
