Lilaas to supply LO1 thruster control lever units to US-based Marine Technologies for a new PSV's BridgeMate control system.

The system is for a Platform Support Vessel (PSV) ordered by Global Offshore at Havyard in Norway. The newbuilding, a Havyard 832 design, is due for delivery in June 2013.


The installation will be distinguished by the control system’s mounting in the armrest of the captain’s bridge chair, which will mean both azimuth and thruster control are possible while the Master is in a seated position. LO1 is a multifunctional control lever for azimuth, thruster or propulsion controls. The lever’s functionality and high software content is complimented by its ergonomic design.



The new lever, which is compact and rugged, is designed to combine multifunctional controls in a simple and safe manner. It features components pre-installed in its structure and only requires a very shallow cut-out beneath. The LO1 can be supplied with a built-in TFT LCD display, which shows the position of the lever and feeds back information from the ship’s systems. However, Marine Technologies has requested a customised model without a display, mounted in a 96mm x 96mm panel, as the company already shows thruster forces on its own panel indicators.
