Kongsberg Maritime has secured contracts with Ulstein Verft to supply integrated equipment package to four new CSOVs


Kongsberg Maritime will supply an extensive equipment package for four windfarm Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOV), two for Bernhard Schulte Offshore and two for J.P. Morgan Asset Management.

The 90 metre vessels are being built at Ulstein Verft AS, to the ULSTEIN SX222 design. Kongsberg Maritime will supply the same range of equipment to all four vessels.

The Kongsberg Maritime package tightly integrates US 205 azimuth thrusters with the K-Power DC Hybrid solution, the K-Chief EMS/IAS and the rest of the K-Line control systems for a new level of smart energy management.

It will be controlled from a modern and efficient fully integrated K-Master Bridge solution, covering K-Bridge Navigation, K-Thrust and an advanced K-Pos W2W DP system.

Sondre Næslund Larsson, Sales Director – Offshore, Kongsberg Maritime, said: “We are delighted to have been trusted by Ulstein Verft and the owners to supply an extensive range of equipment to their high-quality vessels. The demand for offshore wind vessels is increasing and so is the requirement for them to be energy efficient and ready for future regulations.”

“Kongsberg Maritime brings a wealth of experience through efficient electrical, propulsion and control systems. The flow of information between the systems enables new functionality for enhanced efficiency and improved safety. We look forward to working with Ulstein Verft and the owners as this exciting project develops.”
