Diving Support Vessel

Maximise performance for all diving support operations

Kongsberg Maritime Integrated Solutions for Diving Support Vessels represent the most efficient and cost-effective solution of their kind on the market. We aim to reduce cost both for CAPEX and OPEX while also reducing the environmental footprint. Additionally we will improve operational safety by enabling better positioning of the vessel towards the subsea crane and diving bell.


Key figures

Decrease in cables and installation work at yard compared with traditional systems.

Energy savings with up to 20% based on integrated hybrid energy system.

Increase your operational window by better control of position related to the subsea crane, ROV or diving bell.

Modern Diving Support vessels are increasingly complex, performing high complexity work under more demanding conditions.  Their overall performance is therefore crucial for progress and sustainability. Kongsberg addresses these challenges through smarter future proof integration between all systems onboard, robust system design and efficiencies that both reduce cost and enhance performance.

KONGSBERG's solution for Diving Support operations is designed to improve its performance, increasing efficiency, lowering costs, improving safety and reducing the environmental footprint. Better integration of solutions can enable reduced time for installation, commissioning and testing.

Integration of our state of the art Propulsion units, Engines, Deck Machinery and Control and Safety Systems will reduce a number of cost elements for a diving support vessel.

  • Shipyard will save engineering hours, interface meetings, cabling and installation work, and over all reduce the risk in the project
  • Ship designers will be able to tailor their solutions for specific designs and customer requirements together with KONGSBERG. An integrated solution will free up space and reduce weight. This is valid for winches, LARS systems electrical systems and control systems at bridge
  • Owner and operators will reduce OPEX regards to efficient diving support operations. A proven life cycle management system for the delivered solution will in the long run save cost and increase visibility for the uptime of your asset.

The world´s most advanced technology systems are now available in the diving support industry.

  • Operability

    User friendly and intuitive human machine interface across the different systems makes it easier for the operators to learn to operate the systems. Onshore collaboration is made possible through the Information Management System. Online planning and training facilities result in faster and safer operation.

  • Productivity

    Controlling the ferry from quay to quay, with automatic control of route and speed, ensures that the timetable is followed, every time.

  • Efficiency

    Integrated maneuvering system and energy management, using the energy needed to be there on time, but nothing more.

  • Safety

    Automated maneuvering drastically reduces the risk of touching the quay or driving ramp.

  • Environment

    By choosing the right route, and keeping the speed and accelerations as low as possible, minimal energy consumption and environmental impact is sought.

  • Performance

    Azipull is the preferred propulsor. The right combination of maneuverability and efficiency in transit.

Connecting with the future today.

Multiple systems, one platform, limitless potential.

By uniting operations, energy,  and handling solutions, KONGSBERG creates integrated vessel concepts that unlock powerful benefits.

The result is greater efficiency, reduced costs, intelligent asset management and a continual cycle of learning and improvement. Data is shared, understanding is enhanced and better realtime and long-term decisions are made possible, both at sea and on land.

 Marine operations is integrated, the future is KONGSBERG!
