DP Reference Sensor Contract - 25/04/2007


Dynamic Positioning Services has been awarded a contract by Shell U.K. to supply and support a Guidance Navigation DP Reference sensor called RadaScan. The contract involves the installation of up to eleven RadaScan systems on board Shell’s contracted fleet of platform supply vessels, and the supply of ninety passive positioning transponders which will be installed on all Shell North Sea installations and mobile drilling unit supported from Aberdeen (UK).

RadaScan is an advanced radar based positioning sensor for DP vessels, which was released to the market in 2006 following four years of development by Guidance Navigation, a Leicester-based company.

The contract award coincides with Dynamic Positioning Services moving

to a new purpose-built facility in Bridge of Don. It will lead to the creation of four new permanent positions to service the contract including a project manager post.
