Offshore Oil and Gas Specialised Ships

Over many years MES has gained specialist expertise in the supply of Navigation and Communication packages on vessels designed to operated in the Oil and Gas sectors.  Such vessels include standby/safety vessels, platform supply vessels, pipelayers and dive support vessels.  The common theme on many of these vessels is adapting the bridge layout to suit operation from the aft end of the bridge with often a requirement to integrate into a DP system.  MES can assist with console design, bridge layouts, rules compliance to meet special class notations such as Naut OSV and providing suitable systems to help meet the CAP 437 requirements for offshore helidecks.
Other common features on this type of vessel are the requirement for integrated internal and external communications systems that meet the demands of charterers (e.g. VSAT).  Crew entertainment is an increasingly important consideration on these types of vessel and MES can advise and provide SAT TV systems and TV on demand on both newbuilds and retrofit installations.

Popular equipment we use in this sector is Furuno, Kelvin Hughes and Sperry (Radars, Nav aids and GMDSS comms), Vingtor or Phontech (internal comms).
The ever increasing video surveillance and CCTV domain has brought advances which can bring benefits to offshore operations.  This is an increasingly large side of our business.

MES has carried out so many of these installations that we can usually turn around an enquiry for a full package in a couple of days so please send us your specification.
