A GeoDredge system was installed on the crane vessel CAMA, owned and operated by CAMA VOF from The Netherlands.The installation consists of a full 3D Viking RTK system for the grab dredge, and a Viking navigation system for the vessel’s wheelhouse. Using an industrial, wireless high speed link, data is shared in realtime between the Viking systems in the crane and in the wheelhouse.
We showcased some new projects and products such as our GeoSonic – Portable multibeam system, our new rapid deployment TMS, and our very successful Offshore Rental System.
Next up the Europort Exhibition in Rotterdam, see you there!
A complete 19” rack mounted Viking Offshore system was installed on the Blue Aries for Hydrotechnik Lubeck. Hydrotechnik Lubeck uses Viking Offshore combined with our GeoGNSS, 19” rackmount GNSS receiver for their offshore bubble hose laying operations.
A short feature about our GeoDredge systems working on the dredging project in the Dutch river Vecht was recently published in the international Dredging Port and Construction Magazine.
On-site installation of our Viking Tug Management System on the cable laying vessel Stemat Spirit and two anchor handling tugs for the Gemini wind farm.
Using the advanced anchoring module in the Viking software the Stemat Spirit was able to create, use and adjust an anchor plan consisting of seven anchors. All carried out in realtime during the delicate cable laying operation.
At the same time, and using long range UHF, both anchor handling tugs received all planning information and any changes in the plan in realtime, along with clear visual representation of which anchor to place on which location on the seabed.
We had a very successful week at the Ocean Business 2015 in Southampton. A great opportunity to showcase our Viking software, along with our unique GeoDredge and GeoSonic all-in-one hardware products to a huge international visitor base. Great thanks to all who were able to visit us there!
