German Naval Yards deploys hospital unit on EGV “Berlin”

German Naval Yards has installed the second integrated Marine Operational Rescue Center (iMERZ) on a German Navy task force provider.

After the task force provider (EGV) “Frankfurt am Main” was already equipped with an iMERZ at the Kiel shipyard in 2022, the next integrated Marine Operational Rescue Centre (iMERZ) has now been successfully installed on the task force provider “Berlin”. [ds_preview]

This means that the second of a total of three ships in the Bundeswehr’s Berlin class now also has a fully comprehensive medical facility on board. With a length of 174 m and a displacement of 20,200 tons, the three supply ships of the 702 class (“Berlin class”) are the largest seagoing units of the German Navy.

Around a year ago, German Naval Yards was awarded the contract for the design and construction of the integrated Marine Emergency Rescue Centre for the German Navy’s task force supply ship.

Like the iMERZ I, the iMERZ II was integrated as a permanent deckhouse on the task force provider. The original approach was based on a container solution. The permanently integrated solution should lead to an optimisation of medical care processes and an improved connection to the ship. The rescue centres offer the navy two fully-fledged hospitals at sea, each with an infirmary, two operating theatres, an X-ray room, a dental technology department, various laboratories and state-of-the-art medical technology. According to the information provided, the i-MERZ enables comprehensive trauma surgery and intensive medical care for soldiers.
