Ship modelling software company Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) reports that it has received an order from Norwegian shipping company Solstad Offshore ASA to install its Autoload onboard stability software on board 10 of its vessels.

Installations will take place onboard the Normand Jarl, Normand Drott, Normand Titan, Normand Trym, Normand Atlantic, Normand Borg, Normand Mjolne, Normand Draupne, Normand Skarven and Normand Seven.

This will complete a total of 33 Autoload vessel installations for Solstad Offshore, form its total fleet of 43 construction service vessels, platform supply vessels and anchor handling tug supply vessels. The company also has 10 vessels currently under construction in Singapore and Norway.

Normand Seven, delivered to Solstad Offshore in July, is the largest offshore construction vessel (OCV) ever built by Ulstein Verft in Norway.

The vessel is 130m long and 28m wide with a bridge at a size of 400m2. It is equipped with ROV support on each side, a 250 tonne crane with heave compensation and has DP IMO Class III.

For the next 17 months, Normand Seven will install flexible riser and flow line pipes in Brazilian waters on the Petrobras? project "Roncadore?.

Autoship now claims to completed over 400 installations of its system for a number of shipping companies, including BP, Swire Pacific, Rolls Royce, Statoil and Teekay Shipping. The software uses a 3D model to simulate current or anticipated loading conditions and enables a user to verify stability, trim, drafts, and structural strength status.
