KONGSBERG has been awarded a significant offshore automation contract with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME). The contract covers deliveries to two semi-submersible drilling rigs (Cat-D), with an option for KONGSBERG to deliver products and services for two more semi-submersible drilling rigs.

"This is what we call a 'Full Picture' solution from Kongsberg Maritime, as it includes systems for dynamic positioning, thruster control, bridge navigation, vessel automation, safety, riser management and environmental monitoring. Our strategy is to take on more responsibility in the value chain by offering a full range of Integrated Automated Marine Systems. This contract was won as a direct result of this approach. Close collaboration with the customer and a commitment to understanding the extreme contexts in which our technology is applied are important driving forces behind this award", says Geir Haoy, President Kongsberg Maritime.

Kongsberg Maritime will commence deliveries early next year, including engineering services at the yard in Korea. All key deliveries from KONGSBERG are scheduled for completion by December 2012. Startup, commissioning and trials are scheduled to be completed in Q1 and Q3 2014.

"The competition is strong and we are very pleased to have secured this contract. It is a clear demonstration of our capabilities in this field. I am also very pleased with the hard work performed by our international offshore team", concludes Tor Erik Sorensen, Executive Vice President Kongsberg Maritime.
