Palladium Technologies, Inc. has been awarded contracts for the new 42m Trimaran Motor Yacht Adastra. This unique superyacht Adastra was designed by John Shuttleworth Yacht Design, Ltd. and is being built by McConaghy Boats in Zhu Hai, China. Plans are to launch yacht Adastra in early 2011 with her cruising grounds expected to be in the beautiful waters of Indonesia.
“As a testament to our commitment to being a ‘Total Solutions’ technology company, Palladium has been awarded many extensive projects, especially overseas,” said Mike Blake, president, Palladium Technologies.
Palladium’s continued expansion into the electrical arena means they will be providing the electrical designs for such items as: AC/DC load analysis, AC/DC power distribution, motor control circuits, and emergency and yacht lighting circuits. The electrical systems will be comprised of Titan switchboards, Titan AC/DC distribution panels, shorepower conversion, lighting systems, A/V entertainment, bridge electronics and a navigation light control panel. All the aforementioned items interface to the SiMON monitoring, alarm and control system.
SiMON will also be monitoring 269 points with two main monitoring and alarm stations. One is located at the bridge and crew area along with a secondary alarm notification in the engine room. A Consilium fire detection system will be designed to notify the crew and guests of a potential fire.
SiMON-C, Palladium’s camera security system, will contain a DVR server located on the bridge supporting up to eight cameras. Digital motion detection, camera recording and playback are some of the features of this system.
The Power 41 metre Trimaran superyacht Adastra is being built in China for Anto Marden. As the trimaran yacht design approaches final development, the rendering you see have been produced photrealistic of the Yacht Adastra.
The owner of “Mazinga”, the 45 Ft sailing trimaran, had been talking to John Shuttleworth yacht designed for a fewf years about a new open ocean cruising power trimaran superyacht Adastra. This led to the development of a the 40 metre Power Trimaran.
Based on the original concept developed by Nigel Irens in Ilan Voyager and Cable and wireless, this new boat is a departure from previous yachts of this type in that we have achieved comfortable accommodation for 10 guests and 4 permanent crew.
The boat will be powered by a single 1000 HP inboard diesel giving a top speed of 24 knots. Range will be 3000+ miles for long distance ocean voyaging, and around the world capability. Due for launch in 2010 the basic cruising area will likely include Singapore, The Philippines. Hong Kong, and Indonesia.
