DSME Orders Kongsberg Equipment for Transocean Drillships

Norway’s KONGSBERG has been awarded a significant offshore automation contract with South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME). The contract covers deliveries to four Transocean owned new-build drillships, with an option for KONGSBERG to deliver products and services for six more drill ships.  

“We call this a ‘Full Picture’ solution, as it includes dynamic positioning, position reference systems, thruster control, integrated automation systems, riser management and environmental monitoring within the same project. This approach provides procurement and installation efficiencies, whilst streamlining service and maintenance as we act as a single point of contact for a wide range of systems on board,” says Morten Stanger, Regional Manager Offshore, Kongsberg Maritime.

Kongsberg Maritime will commence deliveries early in 2014. All key deliveries from KONGSBERG are scheduled for completion by June 2014 for the first vessel and by October 2015 for the fourth vessel.

“KONGSBERG has already supplied systems to Transocean for two on-going drill ship projects at DSME, contracted in 2011. We are satisfied that DSME and Transocean have selected KONGSBERG as one of their key suppliers for these vessels based on our capabilities and competitiveness, in addition to our  delivery performance to date,” adds Tor Erik Sørensen, Executive Vice President, Kongsberg Maritime.
