STP Palma shifts to digital radio

ADVERTISEMENT

STP Shipyard Palma has begun using a digital radio system, which it claims makes it the first shipyard to do so.

New legislation requires shipyards and yachts to migrate to DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) which provides full coverage. With a personalized, specially coded software, it has a system that has a visual interface and is installed on different devices. The software allows to assign tasks to any worker, who can also answer and mark these tasks as done via the supplied device.

This system allows users to track forklifts and cranes, as well as improve safety through emergency channels and panic buttons.

This change has been prompted by the recent enlargement of the shipyard area, where full coverage was not reached and where interference was high in bad weather.

“The new digital radio system offers numerous advantages, the most important is clarity in communication and the possibility that each sector has its own channel,” said shipyard manager Joan Rosselló. “In addition, users can receive calls or text messages. Each radio has an emergency button that if necessary it is possible to transmit all the channels at once by general emergency channel.”
