To Provide Hornbeck Vessels DP

Hornbeck Offshore will employ GE Power Conversion’s latest generation DP technology for its four new multipurpose supply vessels (MPSVs). In their role as MPSVs, they can operate as either a subsea construction vessel capable of performing complex subsea construction operations or as a resupply and support vessel to ultra deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, or anywhere else in the world as required by their charterers. “The DP solution and its user interface is the heart of a ship’s positioning system. When we can continue to work with a company that knows us, has supplied us with systems in the past and, with our input, can supply us with a next generation system we can rely on, it remarkably enhances our mission to provide value-added business solutions for our own customers,” said Carl G. Annessa, EVP and COO at Hornbeck Offshore. “By using GE’s solution, we gain efficiency and flexibility thanks to a commonality of systems, as well as access to a global team of experts.”GE will power, propel and position the new ships by delivering the integrated diesel-electric system including generators, propulsion and thruster drives, motors, switchboards, LV distribution, transformers, Class 2 DP, power management, alarm and monitoring, vessel control and an integrated bridge system comprising a comprehensive navigation and communications suite including radars, ECDIS, GMDSS and a full suite of internal and external communications systems. GE is also equipping Hornbeck’s series of 10 PSVs.
