Cegelec Wins Dynamic Positioning System Order From Cable & Wireless

The Marine Systems Division of Rugby-based Cegelec Projects has been awarded a contract by Cable & Wireless (Marine) Ltd. to supply and install a DPS 901 dynamic positioning system in its cable lay/support vessel, MSV Seaspread (formerly Stena Seaspread). MSV Seaspread operates out of Victoria, Canada, where the DPS 901 will be installed. Vessel downtime will be reduced to a minimum with careful scheduling and innovative installation techniques. The contract follows another order from Cable & Wireless for similar equipment to be installed on a newbuild cable ship currently under construction.

The contract forms part of a program of refurbishments and enhancements to the vessel taking place near the end of 1994. As well as replacing the existing rival DP system, Cegelec will also be providing a major enhancement to the vessel's hydroacoustic position reference system. The DPS901 is the Simplex variant of a family of DP control systems developed by Cegelec Projects — the DPS 900 Series.

Launched in 1993, it reportedly enjoys a reputation for quality and reliability, together with an innovative and user-friendly operator interface. The range comprises: DPS 900 (joystick maneuvering system); DPS 901 (Simplex DP); DPS 902 (Duplex DP); and DPS 903 (Triple Voting DP). The DPS 900 systems form part of a family of marine and offshore control and monitoring systems which include thruster-assisted mooring systems (TAMS), power management systems, machinery control and alarm/monitoring systems. Cegelec Projects has the capability to integrate all or some of these to provide complete integrated vessel automation systems.
