Nautronix Wins Contract from Gulfmark Offshore

Nautronix has been awarded a contract to provide their advanced NMS6000 Integrated Vessel Control system on six of Gulfmark Offshore's newbuild vessels.

Having installed NMS6000 Integrated Systems onboard GulfMark's AHTS's, Coloso and Titan, they have returned to Nautronix for the latest, more advanced package - NMS6000 Integrated Class 2 dynamic positioning and Alarm and Monitoring.

The NMS6000 Integrated System combines dynamic positioning with a complete vessel monitoring package. Based on the success of the Coloso and Titan, Gulfmark opted to upgrade from a joystick system to a full Class 2 dynamic positioning system combined with alarm and monitoring to meet ABS DPS-2 and ACCU certifications. The system will offer multiple operating stations located throughout the vessel including the bridge, engine control room and Chief Engineer's quarters with the latest touchscreen interface for simple and intuitive operation. Nautronix' sixth generation system uses "Commercial-Off-The-Shelf" (COTS) hardware to provide a reliable and supportable platform. The latest NMS6000 software offers advanced filtering for improved performance including reductions in fuel consumption and machinery wear as well as advanced diagnostics for efficient troubleshooting.

As suppliers of vessel controls for over twenty years Nautronix recognized the increasing demands on AHTS operators for safer and more efficient operations. By combining vessel controls with alarm and monitoring, vital information is more accessible for the entire vessel resulting in the enhanced operating conditions the market demands.
