Kongsberg Maritime will deliver Integrated Vessel Control Systems for two new Siem Offshore owned, Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc. chartered Well Intervention Vessels (WIV) being built at German shipyard Flensburger-Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG). Both vessels are due for delivery in 2016, and will provide well-intervention services offshore Brazil for Petrobras, for an initial period of 4 years with options to extend.

Based on the Salt 307WIV design, the new WIVs (FSG 765 and 766) will have a length of 158 metres, a beam of 31 metres and max. service speed of 17 knots. The vessels are compliant to MODU code and well-Intervention 2 notation, and will provide accommodation for 150 persons.

The Kongsberg Maritime scope of supply for these two advanced new buildings covers all key navigation, positioning and automation technology, chosen to ensure safe and efficient vessel operation: K-Master (forward and aft bridge), K-Pos DP-32 with K-Pos DP-12 as back-up DP, cJoy DP joystick system, Dual HiPAP 501 with HAIN reference, HMS 100 helideck monitoring system, K-Thrust thruster control, K-Chief 700 incl. Power Management System, K-Safe Fire & Gas and Emergency Shut Down system, K-Bridge navigation bridge and EA 400 hydrographic echo sounder.

"This is a typical ‘Full Picture’ solution, where all key vessel control technology is developed, manufactured and delivered by Kongsberg Maritime," comments Sebastian Jobs, Manager Offshore Division Hamburg, Kongsberg Maritime GmbH. "The package is a typical one, using high-end DP technology integrated with navigation and automation technology through our K-Master aft- and forward bridge workstation, which puts all key systems in easy reach of the operator. This approach supports the safety and efficiency of specialist vessels, such as these WIVs, when undertaking critical offshore operations."
