Finland-based vessel motion control systems manufacturer Navis Engineering has commissioned a DP2 system for the 70m ROV and diving support vessel Resolution.

The vessel has departed for Indonesia on a three-year charter to conduct seascape surveys after successful trials at the Keppel Bay Marina in Singapore.

Navis entered into the charter agreement for Resolution modifications including a 6m lengthening during construction at the MEO Batam shipyard.

The enhancements for the vessel included a mezzanine deck extension and installation of a crane, two ROV generators, a moon pool, air compressor and A-frame, as well as additional PRS, such as taut wire and HPR.

Sinagpore-based offshore specialist Miclyn Express Offshore (MEO) has also been involved in the project.

Navis also supplied the DP2 system for MEO Ranger, a 65m platform supply vessel currently operating in the Persian Gulf.

Navis said that the latest project reflects the strategic investment made by the company in establishing operations in Singapore two years ago.

With current projects including work in Vietnam, the Singapore office has also taken responsibility for overseeing relations with shipbuilders throughout South East Asia.

Navis produces dynamic positioning and vessel motion control systems, and also has a research and development centre in St Petersburg, Russia.
