Offshore Brazil: Raytheon Anschütz Wins OSV Equipment Contracts
Raytheon Anschütz do Brasil reports a number of contract awards for the supply of gyro compass and autopilot systems to new offshore platform supply vessels built at Brazilian shipyards.
The largest contract covers four shipsets, each with a fully equipped triple Standard 22 gyro compass system, repeater compasses and Anschütz PilotStar D autopilot system, for four newbuilt Platform Supply Vessels, followed by various contracts for DP2-classed gyro systems, dual gyro systems and various autopilot systems.
Additional contracts cover the supply of Standard 22 gyro compasses to local retrofit projects, making use of the tailored retrofit packages for Standard 22 that feature specialized universal course transducers to allow customers to maintain existing heading receivers and peripherals on board.
Paul Robbe, Managing Director of Raytheon Anschütz do Brasil, states: “Within a short period of time, we’ve built up a strong support network for the local Brazilian shipping and shipbuilding industry. Over the past seven months, we have sold more than 60 gyro compasses through our new Brazilian distribution structure, boosting out market share in the region. Our customers value the availability of local, competent and fast customer support, as well as having access to high quality, proven navigation systems.”
