Anchoring Module in use on the North Sea

This module provides Viking with a multi point anchoring and tug management Solution that’s easy to operate from a central vessel Anchor plans can be designed beforehand and printed out for approval and after the anchors have been dropped to keep a record. Through wireless communication the anchor plans can be shared with multiple tugs and the system will record where they drop the anchors.

Distance Warning/Windmill Module

This modules provides Viking with an on-screen display of distances from the vessel to points around it. Warnings can be displayed when the vessel goes too far away or too near to these points. Points around the ship can also be updated real-time through an external source like a sonar device to provide distances to moving objects.

Backup Support

This specialized Offshore feature provides Viking with the capability to synchronize everything with a secondary Viking backup system. This will mean you can instantly switch to the backup system in case there’s a failure in the primary system. You’ll always have a backup of your Viking files just by keeping both systems running.
