MT6015 Olympic Orion to install 'Walk-to-Work' system
Olympic Shipping has chosen Kongsberg Maritime's new K-Walk integrated vessel gangway solution for installation aboard the Multipurpose Offshore Vessel (MPSV), Olympic Orion. Designed to significantly increase efficiency and safety for Walk-to-Work duties, K-Walk will be integrated with the advanced Kongsberg Information Management System (K-IMS) and the existing K-Pos Dynamic Positioning system on board Olympic Orion, which will be upgraded as part of the installation in the latter half of 2017.Olympic Orion will utilise the innovative K-Walk solution following its launch as part of KONGSBERG's new Integration Strategy in Fall 2016. The system takes a new approach to increasing productivity and efficiency for Walk-to-Work vessels by improving operability of key systems on board. In addition to full integration with K-IMS to enable mission and route planning for increased service capability within a wind farm, the system interconnects with the DP and a planning station. The system extends vessel availability by increasing the operational weather window. Through integrated mission planning, automated vessel manoeuvring and gangway hook-up, K-Walk introduces a step-change for increasing efficiency and productivity of the Walk-to-Work operations that are integral to Wind Farm Construction and Maintenance projects. While providing a completely safe, motion compensated gangway for the fast transfer of personnel and materials, integration enables more efficient approach and settlement at wind turbines and more effective logistics. The system is activated prior to entering a wind turbine's safety zone, reducing vessel speed and launching the K-Walk hook up process during approach. Because of the integration with the DP, the gangway is able to move into position while the vessel is still moving, positioning it safely as the vessel arrives on station. MT6015 Olympic Orion The integration of K-Walk with K-IMS is a unique approach that enables in-depth mission planning, resulting in increased productivity and efficiency by finding the most preferred route for increased service capability within the wind farm. The system will be fully connected with Olympic Orion's DP system, offering increased operability with a new condition based operator environment, which requires less manpower and has minimal training requirements. The K-Walk solution for Olympic Orion will also improve time for mobility and safety with an integrated lift system for transfer of people and goods, including electric trolleys (under design) for movement of pallets across the gangway. Overall, K-Walk significantly enhances operational time efficiency, which improves productivity with the ability to serve more wind turbines within the same time frame. "We are very satisfied to select Kongsberg Maritime's new fully integrated Gangway solution for our MPSV Olympic Orion," says Bjørn Kvalsund, COO, Olympic Subsea. "We also see a potential to install this integrated Gangway solution on board several of our existing vessels in order to provide W2W services into an expanding and interesting market segment." "Olympic Orion embodies the future that we envisioned with the launch of our Integration Strategy last year and we are delighted to work with Olympic Shipping for our cutting-edge new K-Walk solution," said Stene Førsund, Executive Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, Kongsberg Maritime. "K-Walk provides Olympic Orion with total oversight of route planning and gangway hook-up operations. It enables better real-time and long-term management decisions, and empowers safer, more predictable, and efficient operations through reduced human interaction and automation based on the deep integration of critical systems on board."

Marin Teknikk to design new yacht for Graeme Hart and Kleven
When Marin Teknikk signed a Expedition Yacht contract in spring 2013, we were unsure if this was a "one of a kind" or if it could be the start of several ship design to this market. It is therefore with great pleasure that we can confirm this new contract between Graeme Hart and Kleven on another vessel of this class, type MT5006 MkII.The vessel has some common features with the one that is under construction at Kleven, but it is almost 10 meters longer, keeping a total length of over 116m. The accommodation will be of high standard.The vessel is also to be equipped with a helicopter deck and hangar for helicopter. There will be arranged space for and deployment procedures for five large boats that can be carried on for different excursions. In addition, there will be a hangar for several smaller boats and equipment for water sports. The latest technology on diesel electric propulsion systems and will be installed. There will also be a requirement for dynamic positioning when the vessel should lay long position in remote areas. The vessel will accommodate 66 people, and will include deliveries from a number of Norwegian suppliers like Rolls-Royce, Hareid Group, Jets and Sperre. The vessel will be built at Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, Norway, and is scheduled for delivery in July 2016. The first vessel is to be delivered in June 2015. Both Marin Teknikk and Kleven have learned a lot in the process we have been through and today we holds a knowledge base for this type of ship that is unique.

Offshore Mining - nytt markedssegment for Marin Teknikk AS
Skal levere design til nytt skip for gruvevirksomhet på havbunnen. I en del år har vi studert utvinning av ressurser / mineraler på havbunnen her på Marin Teknikk. Dette på grunn av den kjensgjerning at det finnes  store resurser som venter på å bli utvunnet. Berre en liten del er utforsket og på dette området er det allerede gjort mange interessante funn. Utfordringen er å kunne utvinne dette på en bærekraftig måte, både med tanke på økonomi og miljø.For over 1 år siden ble vi kontaktet av De Beers i Cape Town, Sør Afrika, der de spurte om vi kunne utvikle et skipsprosjekt som skal drive med diamantutvinning i havet utenfor kysten av Namibia. De arbeider på et stort område offshore der elven Orange River har lagt igjen sedimenter i 3 millioner år. I dette området har elven lagt igjen både diamanter og andre verdifulle mineraler. Etter kartlegging av krav og behov som De Beers stiller til ett slikt skipsprosjekt, kom vi frem med et design som reder fant så interessant at det ble besluttet å ta dette videre. Designet vi har brukt som basis er det velprøvde MT6022 designet som det allerede er blitt bygget  12 skip av i forskjellige varianter. Prosjektet til De Beers har eksterne likhetstrekk med tidligere skip , men arrangementet inne i skipet er noe helt annet og er utviklet for å kunne operere utstyr for denne typen aktivitet. Under dekk og på hele akterdekket vil det bli installert utstyr tilpasset aktiviteten.   Vi var i denne perioden i konkurranse med 2 andre skipsdesignere, en norsk og en utenlandsk, der vårt prosjekt ble priset både i Norge og på andre Europeiske verft samt verft i Asia. Det var med stor glede vi registrerte at Kleven i Ulsteinvik kom godt ut i denne konkurransen og meget gledelig er det for oss at kontrakten til slutt ble signert mellom Kleven og De Beers Marine Namibia. Kleven’s gode kvalitet på alle fronter og leveringsdyktighet, spilte i denne sammenhengen en viktig rolle.  Skipet har en lengde på 113m og bredde på 22m og skal operere på havdyp ned til 150m. Den siste teknologien på diesel elektrisk systemer og fremdrift vil bli installert, og det blir stilt høge krav til dynamisk posisjonering da fartøyet skal ligge i posisjon i 3 år mellom hver gang den returnerer til havn. Innredningen er for 80 personer med høg standard og de fleste lugarene er beregnet for 1 person. Mindre skip vil forsyne skipet med nødvendige leveranser og helikopter besørge transport av  mannskapet samt å ta den verdifulle lasten til land. Det blir store leveranser av utstyr fra Norske utstyrsprodusenter i forbindelse med denne skipsbyggingskontrakten. Det er svært gledelig for oss å kunne signere denne kontrakten.  Det har blitt arbeidet intenst med prosjektet i lang tid og det bekrefter på nytt vår posisjon som verdens ledende designere av avanserte skip til avanserte operasjoner ute i havet. I øyeblikket er det 14 skip under bygging av MT Design, -fra Dalian, Kina i øst til New Orleans, USA i vest. 4 av disse skipa er under bygging på Kleven. Den nye kontrakten vil være et solid tilskudd for å sikre arbeid for de ansatte langt inn i 2016.  Marin Teknikk har sitt hoved kontor i Dragsund, Herøy Kommune med ca 65 ansatte. I tillegg har vi kontor i Szczecin og Gdansk i Polen med tilsammen nesten 40 ingeniører.
