Nautronix secured a multi million-dollar order from Keppel FELS Ltd for the supply of systems for an ultra-deepwater semisubmersible drilling rig. The vessel is under construction for ENSCO International Incorporated and it will be the second to bear Nautronix equipment - the company secured a contract for the ENSCO 8500 at the end of 2005. The latest order is for the ENSCO 8501, which is scheduled for completion by the second quarter of 2009 for mobilization to the Gulf of Mexico. The scope of supply includes Nautronix NMS6000 multi-station Class 2 Dynamic Positioning (DP) System, thruster controls, a vessel management system and associated environmental and position reference sensors. Nautronix will also supply their Dual NASDrill RS925 multi- hydrophone LBL / SBL Acoustic Positioning System. All equipment for the first rig will be delivered at the end of 2006 and the second nine months later. (Source: Oil Online)
