ECO Fleet to be Outfitted with Autoload

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

Autoship Systems Corporation announced that Edison Chouset Offshore LLC (ECO) of Galliano, LA, USA has chosen to have their offshore fleet of vessels outfitted with the Autoload onboard stability program.

“The delivery of the Autoload software will be a staged roll-out for the ECO fleet. The initial install is set for 68 of the latest-delivered and soon-to-be delivered vessels. Staging after this group will be the remainder of the ECO deepwater fleet, inclusive of PSVs, AHTSVs and Deep Water Support Vessels. When the effort is completed, over 150 ECO vessels will be fitted with the Autoload software.” stated Gary Rook, Technical Director for ECO.

Autoload has over 500 installations world-wide, including Bourbon Offshore, SWIRE Offshore, Solstad Offshore and all vessels built by Rolls-Royce. All ECO AHTS vessels will be delivered with specific anchor handling functions plus several will be fitted with a unique Crane Module to suit a heavy lift offshore crane. All their installations will be fitted with a Tank Sensor program that interfaces directly with Autoload thus providing immediate tank loadings for an accurate and up-to-the-minute analysis of the vessel’s stability.

ECO owns and operates a growing fleet of new generation offshore service vessels supporting a vast majority of the U.S. Gulf deepwater market, as well as a large independently owned fleet of research vessels. ECO's high-tech, high-capacity offshore vessels range from 87 ft to 348 ft.

The builder of the Edision Chouset Offshore fleet is its sister company, North American Shipbuilders (NAS). The shipyard has a long relationship with Autoship Systems dating back to 1992 when ASC supplied the industry’s first PC hull design, plate expansion and hydrostatic programs to NAS’ Engineering Department. Many of the vessels in the ECO’s fleet have been modeled in Autohydro (hydrostatic & stability program) allowing for a fast completion schedule of the Autoload installations.
