Solstad Offshore Installs Autoload Onboard Stability

Thursday, August 02, 2007
Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) announced that their Norwegian Dealer, Coastdesign, Norway (CDN), has received 10 new orders from Solstad Offshore ASA for Autoload onboard stability software. Installations will be onboard vessels; Normand Jarl, Normand Drott, Normand Titan, Normand Trym, Normand Atlantic, Normand Borg, Normand Mjolne, Normand Draupne, Normand Skarven and Normand Seven. Autoload is currently installed onboard 23 Solstad vessels. Normand Seven, delivered to Solstad Offshore in July, is the largest offshore construction vessel (OCV) ever built by Ulstein Verft in Norway. It is a Vik-Sanvik VS 4220 OCV design and was voted Ship of the Year at the 2007 Norshipping Tradeshow in Norway. The vessel is 130m long and 28m wide with a bridge at a size of 400m2. It is equipped with ROV support on each side, a 250 tonne crane with heave compensation and has DP IMO Class III. The vessel is able to perform all types of installation work on the ocean floor. For the next 17 months, Normand Seven will install flexible riser and flow line pipes in Brazilian waters on the Petrobras’ project ‘Roncadore’. Autoload onboard stability software is an advanced loading program suitable for any vessel type. With over 400 installations and counting, Autoload has become the loading software of choice among clients such as BP, Swire Pacific, Rolls Royce, Statoil and Teekay Shipping. One look at the Autoload main screen provides the user with a fast and accurate display of the vessels current stability status, loads and important margins. The user can make important decisions, while leaving the mathematical complexity to the computer. Autoload uses a 3D model to simulate any current or anticipated loading condition andenables a user to quickly verify stability, trim, drafts, and structural strength status. Autoload is the system you should consider for your loading software requirements.
