Alewijnse wins helicopter contract

Netherlands-based Alewijnse Marine has won a contract from DEME’s offshore engineering division, GeoSea, for the electrical integration of a helicopter deck on board the Apollo, a DP2 heavy-lift jack-up unit delivered in August.

The work is to be undertaken during the first quarter of the year and follows Alewijnse’s earlier involvement in electrical system integration prior to the jack-up’s delivery.
Alewijnse will provide an upgrade of existing helicopter deck installations and a new monitoring system. The company will also supply a bridge-controlled fire-fighting system. Prior to the unit’s delivery, Alewijnse designed and engineered a vessel management system including a draft and loading set-up, a tank sounding system, a power management arrangement and a riser and cooling water system.
