A sophisticated package of propulsion, manoeuvring, and positioning systems from Brunvoll have been selected to be supplied to a new aquaculture service vessel to be delivered to Nordlaks in 2025.
The design work on the 24-metre service vessel is from NSK Ship Design and construction is taking place at Havyard Leirvik. The new compact service vessel for aquaculture will become part of the Nordlaks Maritime fleet.
A particular requirement for the designer and owner was to minimise the noise and vibration from the tunnel thruster in the bow of the vessel. Here the Brunvoll proven Low-Noise thruster was selected to meet this requirement.
In addition to suitable thrusters and propulsion system, a BruCon DP0 system is supplied. The DP0 system includes a follow ROV-mode to support the service vessels subsea operations. The station-keeping abilities that is a core functionality in dynamic positioning will be valuable for a busy vessel in a varying and demanding workday. The vessel will need to work at multiple locations, often without other suitable options for laying still.
The order for Brunvoll also includes the BruCon Propulsion and Thruster Control (PTC) Workstations, ensuring a seamless integration, look and feel on the vessel operating stations.
