GE’s drive technology for Hornbeck Offshore’s MPSVs

Hornbeck Offshore Services, a U.S.-based provider of offshore service vessels, has picked GE’s drive technology for its Jones Act-qualified MPSVs, constructed by Eastern Shipbuilding.

Two U.S. flagged vessels will be equipped with GE’s MKII MV3000 active front end (AFE) drive.

In addition to the drives, GE has also provided its latest generation dynamic positioning (DP) system. GE said that, with the help of HOS’ input, the SeaStream DP system has been completely redesigned to improve user control interface.

Commenting on the project, Ken Munroe, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Eastern Shipbuilding Group said, “GE has already provided equipment on more than 20 vessels built by us, which is a testimony of our trust in their solutions.”

GE said it would provide its solutions for two of HOS’ MPSVs, both of which were delivered by the yard in January and April of this year, respectively. The company will also provide training to enable operators to use the new technology.
