New Seacor ships to install Kongsberg DP systems

Seacor Marine is to install Dynamic Positioning systems from Kongsberg Maritime on two new 190-foot CrewZer Class Crew boats (also known as fast supply vessels).

The Seacor Lynx and Seacor Leopard are under construction at Gulfcraft Shipyard, located in Louisiana, US, and are scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2013. The ships will be the first Crew boats to operate using an ABS Class DP3 system.

A triple redundant Kongsberg K-Pos DP3 system will be installed, integrated with position reference and environmental sensor systems.

"Dynamic Positioning offers significant station keeping improvements compared to manual control," explains Joe McCall, project manager, Seacor Marine.

"In order for a DP system to be effective, it has to be completely reliable in even the most extreme weather conditions, so we are enthusiastic about the installation of Kongsberg DP3 aboard our new CrewZer class vessels."

"The system is designed to offer the highest redundancy and reliability which allows for safer transfers of cargo and personnel."
