The Marine and Offshore division
of Alstom Drives & Controls has been awarded a contract by James Fisher & Sons to provide a replacement power management, alarm and monitoring system for installation on the C/S Nexus cable layer. This is the second such order for Alstom from James Fisher, who granted the company a contract in 1993 for the supply and installation of a DPS901 Simplex Dynamic Positioning System
onboard the same vessel. The new power management system utilizes the same hardware as the positioning system, complementing the Alstom equipment already in use of the C/S Nexus.
