Kongsberg said on Thursday it would deliver and install a hybrid power solution including K-Pos dynamic positioning, an integrated automation system, and an advanced generator supervisor upgrades designed to improve energy efficiency, optimize power management and enhance vessel positioning maneuvers.

According to the company, the hybrid solution will substantially cut operational costs by helping to reduce the vessel’s fuel consumption.

The upgrade will be accompanied with the installation of a Kongsberg Information Management System, which will give Tidewater Marine and its sub-suppliers continuous data access, both onboard and onshore.

The company added that the work on the Bailey Tide’s upgrade had already started, and was expected to be completed before May 2020.

Deepak Thomas, Kongsberg Maritime Singapore sales manager, said: “We are hugely looking forward to collaborating with Tidewater on this project continuing to deliver the best energy solutions in the maritime sector while simultaneously respecting all environmental requirements.”

Jeff Gorski, COO of Tidewater Marine, added: “Kongsberg’s comprehensive hybrid upgrade positions us as a pioneer in the OSV sector in helping our clients to meet strict environmental regulations, due to be introduced in 2020, for decreasing CO2, NOx, and SOx emissions.”
