Pipelaying vessel

Maximise performance for all pipelay operations

Kongsberg Maritime Integrated Solutions for Pipelaying Operations represent the most efficient and cost-effective solution for this purpose on the market today. We aim to reduce cost both for CAPEX and OPEX while simultaneously reducing the environmental footprint. In adition, we will improve safety and effectivity during pipelaying operations with a uniqe integration between the KONGSBERG and pipelay systems.

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 and production capacity by integration of Pipelay operation into overall vessel management through KONGSBERG control and information systems.

Modern pipelay units are defined both by their increasing complexity and a need to perform with optimal efficiency and sustainability, often in extreme environmental conditions. Kongsberg will address these challenges through smarter future proof integration between all systems onboard, robust system design and efficiencies that both reduce cost and enhance performance.

Kongsberg solutions for pipelay operations is designed to improve the performance of a pipelay unit, increasing efficiency, lowering costs, improving safety and reducing the environmental footprint. Higher level of integration and innovative solutions enables yards to reduce time and risks for installation, commissioning and testing, furthermore maintenance and future upgrades are simplified and cost effective.

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 pipelay unit.

  • 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, electrical systems and control systems at bridge
  • Owner and operators will reduce OPEX regards to efficient pipelay 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.
  • Shipyard, designers, owners and operators will benefit from the unique knowledge and experience Kongsberg possess after more than 20 years within Pipelay operations, enabled by Kongsberg contribution throughout the entire process from concept to operation.

The world´s most advanced technology systems are now available in the pipelay 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.

  • Efficiency

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

  • Environment

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

  • 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.

  • Safety

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

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 efficienct, 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!
