KONGSBERG's New Integrated Position Reference Solution Wins OSJ Dynamic Positioning Award
- New DPS i2 & i4 GNSS positioning solutions come out on top after online vote
“As ever, competition was incredibly tough, with technical innovations that benefit the safety and effectiveness of DP operations from several key players under consideration for the 2018 award,” said OSJ conference chairman and Riviera Maritime Media's head of content, Edwin Lampert. “We put the shortlisted companies in each category to a public online vote and the result in this category tells us that the potential operational advantages enabled by the tight technology integration, scalability and flexibility of KONGSBERG's DPS i2 & i4 solution resonated with the industry, making it a worthy winner of this year's award.”
“It's an honour to have our work recognised by the Offshore Support Journal Dynamic Positioning Award,” said Vidar Bjørkedal, VP Sales & Customer support Kongsberg Seatex. “We are proud that the latest addition to our position reference system portfolio has been recognised as a positive development by the very people that will be using it in the years to come.”
The Offshore Support Journal Dynamic Positioning award is awarded to the developer of an innovative DP product or system, or contractor responsible for an especially innovative application of DP on a project. Accordingly, DPS i2 and DPS i4's unique combination of motion gyro compass (MGCTM) and motion reference unit (MRUTM) technology, in addition to integration of multi GNSS and inertial sensors brings a new approach that among others, means that no additional augmentation service is required for precision positioning data during DP operations.
