USA: Thrustmaster of Texas to Upgrade McDermotts's Derrick Barge

McDermott has awarded a major contract to Thrustmaster of Texas to upgrade its Derrick Barge DB30 with dynamic positioning capabilities (DP-2).

Thrustmaster of Texas will provide McDermott with a turnkey DP solution for its heavy-lift and pipelay vessel which will include eight 2,000hp retractable hydraulic thrusters combined with a comprehensive suite of Kongsberg Dynamic Positioning DP-2 electronic control systems.

“Winning this important contract illustrates Thrustmaster of Texas’ world leadership in providing large-scale, turnkey dynamic positioning solutions to major international marine operators,” said Joe Bekker, President of Thrustmaster of Texas.
