SAM Electronics in Hamburg has been awarded a contract for supply and installation of a comprehensive IT network and associated equipment aboard Pieter Schelte, the €1.3 billion dynamically-positioned platform installation-decommissioning and pipelay vessel being built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in South Korea on behalf of Allseas.

With a length of 382m and breadth of 117m, Pieter Schelte will be the world’s largest vessel of its type. It will have a topside lift capacity of 48,000 tonnes, a jack lift capability of 25,000 tonnes and a pipelay tension proficiency of 2,000 tonnes.

The new vessel is being equipped by SAM Electronics with a specially-designed  multifunction IT network.

Based on a 10GB LAN network and two high-performance core switches with high data throughput, the complete assembly includes a high-precision IP-based master clock facility for worldwide use, comprehensive IP TV and video-on-demand equipment, powerful satellite antennas for internet access, and a novel VoIP telephone system featuring a GSM solution enabling vessel personnel to make telephone calls via their own cell phones. 

Supplementary equipment includes approximately 250 internal, external and underwater cameras in addition to 30 strategically-sited viewing stations for monitoring pipelaying and lifting operations. 

SAM will also provide GMDSS safety equipment as well as a helicopter communication and homing system together with a public address and general alarm facility in addition to communication components designed by its associate company Funa Nachrichtechnik. 

Navigation and special offshore lighting are also to be supplied in addition to a fog warning system.
