Source: 5/2/2024, Location: Europe

NB912, also known as KV Hope, represents the latest addition to the Jan Mayen class of Norwegian Coast Guard vessels for the The Norwegian Defense Materiel Agency (NDMA). This vessel, along with its counterparts KV Jan Mayen and KV Bjørnøya (NB910 and NB911), is delivered with SEAONICS equipment and is now set to replace the existing Nordkapp-class vessels.

The ships play a crucial role in addressing tasks within Norwegian territorial waters, including Arctic regions with challenging conditions. They are designed to mee thigh demands for vessel strength, stability, and communication and control capabilities. Importantly, they can collaborate with both civilian units and military departments.

This acquisition of coast guard vessels stands as one of the most significant defense procurements in Norway’s maritime sector.

SEAONICS was tasked to deliver essential equipment for these three coastguard vessels. The contract, signed with VARD in July 2019, includes identical equipment for each vessel:

- Telescopic Boom Crane with pedestal, 4T@24m / 15T@10m, EX zone 2
- Towing winch 70T SWL, EX zone
- Towing pins
- Anchor Winches (2 off)
- Mooring winches (4 off)
- HPU’s (2 off)
- Electrical cabinets and control system

The towing winch is critical for supporting vessels during emergency and rescue operations. Meanwhile, the telescopic boom crane facilitates lifting and handling of equipment both onboard and from quaysides. The mooring winches ensure safe docking for vessels of this size.

? “The projects have been technically challenging due to the development and testing of prototypes (crane and towing winch). Additionally, the impact of COVID-19 in February 2020 presented further challenges. However, thanks to the excellent cooperation between SEAONICS and VARD Langsten personnel, as well as our ability to collaborate and overcome obstacles, we have successfully achieved to deliver high quality equipment, fit for purpose,” says Vice President Project, Pål Hellevik.

? Saturday 09.03.24 the final SeaTrail for the Coastguard vessel NB912, was conducted and approved. The SeaTrail consisted of a towing test, for tuning and approval oft he towing winch.

“It has been three exciting projects, spanning nearly five years. In which we’ve gained valuable experience that we carry forward into our new projects,” finishes Pål Hellevik.
