Converteam has been selected to supply its C-Series dynamic position (DP) control systems for two platform supply vessels (PSVs) destined for operation in the oil and gas fields of Russia’s northern seas.
The award for Converteam’s automatic position and heading control systems comes from Transas Russian Fleet Limited, which is acting as supplier of integrated solutions for all major navigation and communication systems to the Amurskiy Shipbuilding Factory (member of United Shipbuilding Corporation, Russia) in Komsomolosk, Russia. The two vessels slated to get the DP control systems are being built for Gazflot Ltd., the exploration and support subsidiary of Gazprom.
Converteam’s Paul English, vice president of Business said, “This latest contract follows earlier prestigious projects with Gazflot including the supply of complete electrical systems and positioning equipment for their two new build semi-submersible drilling rigs now working on the Sakhalin project in Russia’s Far East.”
The two PSVs are expected to be operational during 2012.
