    Vessel & ROV News // July 25, 2011

    Acta Marine has recently upgraded the its ultra-shallow water support vessel Coastal Enterprise with a dynamic positioning (DP) system. This allows Coastal Enterprise to automatically maintain its position and heading by using only its own propellers and thrusters.

    Coastal Enterprise is the second Acta Marine vessel equipped with DP. Last month, the vessel successfully completed a vibrocoring project in the North Sea, taking full advantage of the newly installed DP technology.

    The DP system will also enhance the vesselís ability to support dredging operations and offshore windfarm construction work.
