Kongsberg Maritime has secured a contract with Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding for the vessel integrated control system to be used on Nautilus Minerals’ Production Support Vessel (PSV).
The integrated vessel control system (IVCS) package comprises dynamic positioning, marine automation, information management and navigation systems.
The IVCS will keep the vessel within specified position and heading limits while operations are performed.
Mike Johnston, Nautilus’ CEO, commented: “We are delighted to have the global technology leader in this field, well known for its extensive portfolio of high performance products and solutions supplying the dynamic positioning, navigation and control systems for our PSV. We look forward to reporting on the progress of the integration of this system into the vessel as we move closer to having our PSV ready for mining in Q1, 2018.”
