Vissim Secures Marine Radar System Contract for Johan Sverdrup Facility

Vissim announced Friday that it has secured a contract to supply, install and commission a marine radar system for the Statoil operated Johan Sverdrup facility.

The vessel traffic management system (VTMS) project is expected to commence in the second half of 2015 and will include the installation of radar, VHF (radio) and an Automatic Identification System (AIS), which will all be integrated via Vissim’s software into a traffic display for monitoring from the Johan Sverdrup facility. The VTMS will also be integrated into the Statoil Marine Operations System, which remotely monitors all Statoil offshore assets and operations in the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) from an onshore hub in Sandsli, Norway.

Vissim CEO Per Arne Henæs commented in a company statement:

“With Vissim winning the Johan Sverdrup contract, we have proven that Vissim can continue to deliver a first class VTMS system in an increasingly competitive market. We have both the expertise and experience that our customers expect, and we are proud to be working with Statoil on one of the most significant North Sea development projects ever. This contract is a validation of the work Vissim has been conducting with Statoil since 1996 in order to use real time data to save significant costs in offshore operations. With this contract, Vissim continues to expand one the world’s largest private remote real time radar, voice communication, and emergency response systems on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.”
