Inc. of Mobile Ala., awarded Alstom the contract to design, install and commission the fully integrated AC electrical propulsion and control systems for the 210-ft. support vessels which will be based in the Gulf of Mexico.

Alstom will also provide support and training at its technical training facility in Houston, Texas. The equipment includes Class II DP systems from Alstom's 'A' Series and vessel control systems, as well as switchboards, transformers and AC variable speed drive trains. The switchboards will be built in the US, allowing flexibility during the design phases of the project.

Steve Raynor, Sales Director for Alstom's Marine and Offshore Activity, said: "We secured this significant contract based on our proven record with Bender Shipbuilding, having completed a number of orders for them in the past. We were also the only company which could serve as a single source supplier for all the DP, vessel management system and propulsion equipment and provide full support through our training facility in Texas." The first vessel is due to be delivered in March 2004.
