Nordic Yards in Wismar, Germany, has awarded Kongsberg Maritime a contract to deliver an Integrated Vessel Control System for a newbuild 80m Wind Turbine Service Jack-Up Vessel, owned by Danish offshore services specialist, DBB Jack-Up. The integrated 'Full Picture' solution covers navigation, automation and manoeuvring systems, and will be one of the first to feature Kongsberg Maritime's recently launched LAN-based Radar system. The new radar concept, K-Bridge 'Composite Picture' Radar CP360, is an integral part of the K-Bridge navigation system to be installed. With new, user-friendly control of radar video and tracking, CP360 distributes digital radar signals on a local area network (LAN). This makes possible innovative features such as combining radar images from multiple radar transceivers and displaying them as a single composite picture, eliminating blind sectors and providing a single 360 degree view, covering different ranges, around the vessel. The complete delivery to DBB Jack-Up's new vessel includes K-Chief Alarm Monitoring & Control System, K-Thrust Thruster Control System, K-Bridge Integrated Navigation System and K-Pos DP-22 Dynamic Positioning based on DNV DYNPOS AUTRO (DP II). All key systems are accessible through Kongsberg Maritime's K-Master system, a dual redundant, seated aft and forward bridge solution, which will act as the control centre for vessel navigation, manoeuvring and jack-up operations.
