Maximum workability for your mission

We optimise the workability of your cable lay vessel by applying an unparalleled holistic analysis. The vessel design and mission equipment such as the dynamic positioning system and cable laying system are integrated in the design of the vessel.  We combine vessel motions, DP system behavior, cable lay operations (such as speed and heading) and weather conditions in our proprietary analysis tools during the design phase, in order to guarantee that the vessel’s workability will meet your mission requirements.
