Both vessels, owned by Siem Offshore and chartered by Helix Energy Solutions Group, will provide well-intervention services offshore Brazil for Petrobras, for an initial period of four years with options to extend.

Kongsberg will supply navigation, positioning and automation technology, including K-Master (forward and aft bridge), K-Pos DP-32 with K-Pos DP-12 as backup, K-Thrust thruster control, K-Chief 700 monitoring system, K-Safe fire & gas and emergency shutdown system, K-Bridge navigation bridge and EA 400 hydrographic echo sounder.

“The package is a typical one, using high-end DP technology integrated with navigation and automation technology through our K-Master aft- and forward bridge workstation, which puts all key systems in easy reach of the operator,” said Sebastian Jobs, manager Offshore Division Hamburg, Kongsberg Maritime. “This approach supports the safety and efficiency of specialist vessels, such as these WIVs, when undertaking critical offshore operations.”
