Equipment & Technology - May 10, 2012

| More

Seacor Marine in Houma, Louisiana has chosen Kongsberg Maritime to supply dynamic positioning systems for two new 190ft CrewZer class crewboats (also known as Fast supply vessels).

Seacor Lynx and Seacor Leopard are under construction at Gulfcraft Shipyard in Franklin, Louisiana and are scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2013.

They will be the first crewboats to operate using an ABS Class DP3 system.

ABS Class DP3 allows for significant operational safety including full protection of the system in case of fire and flooding.

Kongsberg Maritime in Houston, Texas will install the DP technology aboard the new vessels, in the form of a triple redundant K-Pos DP3 system integrated with proprietary position reference and environmental sensor systems.
