DBB Jack-Up Services' new wind turbine service jack-up vessel has just been launched, with a full complement of Kongsberg Maritime control and automation technology on board.
Wind Server’s ‘Full Picture’ technology solution covers navigation, automation and manoeuvring systems, specifically designed to support safety and efficiency during complex offshore maintenance operations.
“The Kongsberg Maritime technology delivered for Wind Server matches the advanced vessel design and other hardware on board, which come together to meet the current requirements of the offshore wind market,” said Sebastian Jobs, manager sales & projects, Kongsberg Maritime Hamburg.
He added that the integration of Kongsberg Maritime’s unique network radar solution with the K-Master aft bridge, K-Chief Alarm Monitoring & Control System, K-Bridge Integrated Navigation System and K-Pos DP-22 Dynamic Positioning and K-Thrust thruster control, makes Wind Server one of the most advanced jack-up service vessels in the world.
All key systems are accessible through Kongsberg Maritime’s K-Master system, a dual redundant, seated aft and forward bridge solution, which will act as the control centre for vessel navigation, manoeuvre and jack-up operations.
The K-Bridge ‘Composite Picture’ Radar CP360 is a key part of the delivery, demonstrating a unique digital, networked approach that enables the combining of radar images from multiple radar transceivers to provide a more complete 360 degree picture.
Built at Nordic Yards in Wismar, Germany, Wind Server, will maintain offshore wind turbines throughout Northern Europe.
