Kongsberg has been appointed as the supplier and integrator of all electrical, telecom and integrated control systems for the new Petrofac JSD 6000 deepwater derrick lay vessel, to be built at the Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. (ZPMC) yard in China for Petrofac UK. The contract worth more than NOK 230 Million was awarded by ZPMC to Kongsberg Maritime Engineering (KME), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime.

The full contract includes supply and integration of the electrical, telecom and integrated control systems, project management, interface management and engineering services at all stages. In addition, a significant technology scope of supply includes generators, switchboards, automation, navigation & DP systems, radio and satellite communications, networking and on board entertainment, safety technology and monitoring systems such as the advanced helideck monitoring system.

Petrofac JSD 6000 is based on a unique and innovative design by Ulstein Sea of Solutions, which integrates the J-Lay, S-Lay and derrick functions and will provide Petrofac with access to high-end turnkey opportunities in the high growth deepwater and SURF markets, and expand access to shallow water EPCI projects. It will be available for construction and installation activities in early 2017.

“This is a milestone contract for Kongsberg Maritime Engineering, and one of the most extensive ‘Full Picture’ contracts that Kongsberg Maritime has secured to date,” said Geir Håøy, President, Kongsberg Maritime. “Our approach of acting as a single supplier for all aspects of maritime vessel technology combined with being close to the customer in all major shipbuilding regions positions us as a natural partner for large integrated projects and we are proud to have been chosen to play such an important part in the development of Petrofac UK’s new unit.”
