Alu Design & Services has been contracted by STX Norway Electro for delivery of pilot chairs and deck rails to STX’s YN 725. Delivery is scheduled for March 2010. This is the company’s second order with Alu Design and a third order is already underway.
The chair on order is an adaptation of the Alutech 700 Offshore with the armrests modified for STX’s instruments, which include thruster, propulsion, rudder and DP joystick controls. Positioned on an electrically operated deck rail, its other features include powered height adjustments, an intercom mounted to the backrest and hidden wiring.
