Nautronix Secures Order from Keppel FELS

Wednesday, May 03, 2006
According to reports, International Positioning and Undersea Systems Technology Company this week landed a second major order with a Far East rig builder. 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. The NMS6000 is the latest generation of vessel control systems from Nautronix, who have been a major supplier of this type of equipment for over twenty years. The Nautronix NASDrill RS925 is a deepwater acoustic positioning system that has been developed to meet the demands of the offshore industry and provides a dependable acoustic DP sensor for ultra deep water positioning. Nautronix has applied its unique Acoustic Digital Spread Spectrum (ADS2) signalling technology, which is the key to the impressive range, accuracy and update rate performance provided by the NASDrill RS925 System. The combined SBL / LBL methodology provides reliability, redundancy and robustness essential to ensure the vessel remains on task. source: Oil Online
