An equipment package from Kongsberg Maritime has been ordered for a next generation Field Development Vessel (FDV), to be built by Brodosplit Shipyard and DIV Group in Croatia for Scottish company Triumph Subsea Services.

The ST-269 vessel is designed to be a truly multi-purpose turnkey solution for nearly all the subsea construction tasks encountered within the offshore oil and gas, subsea telecoms, decommissioning and renewables markets. The contract includes an option for three further FDVs.

Kongsberg will deliver a fully integrated solution including engines, thrusters, deck machinery, electrical and control systems. Triumph will install an in-house designed bridge with an ergonomic interface, fuel optimisation solutions, digital technology and a proven thruster configuration. These systems have been developed through Kongsberg Maritime’s and Triumph Subsea Services’ experience in the subsea construction market.

These vessels are the first offshore construction vessels to incorporate Kongsberg’s Safety Management Control System (SMCS), greatly enhancing crew safety.

Triumph Subsea Services founder and COO Gray Johnstone said: “We are very excited to have been working with Kongsberg from the initial conceptual stages and to have incorporated the Kongsberg suite of equipment and systems. This has enabled us to achieve a game-changing vessel with the smallest possible environmental footprint, whilst ensuring maximum operability and safety for our people and the environment.”

“It’s an honour to be a key supplier for these new Field Development Vessels for Triumph Subsea Services,” said Tommy Andree Hove, Regional Sales Director Americas, Kongsberg Maritime. “To be part of a game-changing project in the subsea construction market whilst also contributing to a more environmental-friendly solution mirrors Kongsberg’s ambitions to deliver new, green technologies and solutions for sustainable oceans.”
