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.

Once the upgrades are completed, the 420-foot vessel will operate in Asia Pacific waters conducting deepwater and subsea installations where DP operations provide differentiating installation solutions.

“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.
