Kongsberg to supply advanced systems for multi-task subsea installation vessel

Kongsberg Maritime has signed a letter of intent with Brodosplit Shipyard and Croatian engineering firm, DIV Group, to provide a wide range of components for the first of up to four field development vessels. They are under construction for Scotland’s Triumph Subsea Services.

The Norwegian technology company will supply engines, thrusters, deck machinery, electrical and control systems, and a Safety Management Control System for the first ST-269 multi-purpose vessel. The Scottish company holds options for up to three more identical ships which are designed to undertake almost all subsea construction tasks relating to offshore energy, subsea telecoms and decommissioning projects.

Triumph Subsea Services plans to install its own bridge system incorporating digital technology, fuel-optimised systems, and a well-proved thruster configuration. The integration of this and the Kongsberg supply package will ensure that the vessels are truly ready for the future, the companies said.
