HMA receives the order of a total integrated IAS-PMS-ESD-F&G system for the Island Offshore new building 301 at Ulstein.
We feel this as a huge recognition of the quality and performance we have shown on our earlier deliveries to this leading offshore ship owner.
As this vessel also will be equipped with well head operation, a SIL ESD/F&G system is to be included in delivery.
This new system will be similar to the systems delivered to Island Wellserver, and Island Constructor, but for this delivery it will be a part of the IAS.
This specification also call for a sophisticated redundancy configuration of the overall system, as it will be designed according to the so called "Operation +" philosophy. The basic idea is that "no single failure" shall disable this vessel from operating in DP2. For the PMS, this require a high degree of separation, and communication redundancy. HMA have earlier made similar configurations to drilling vessels with four separate switchboards.
By this order, HMA increases its position as a high quality supplier for complete automation packages to advanced offshore vessels.
Necessary communication between PMS and DP, what is needed?
Due to a widespread misunderstanding in this field among yards, and owners, HMA have issued a document which explains why there should be no (essential) communication between the PMA and the DP system.
This information have been requested by yards, which need to understand this important issue.

HMA acquires the Romanian company PATEC
The constant increase of requests for our solutions and our services, have resulted in a demand for more work power.
This will increase our capacity, and we are now better prepared for new challenges in the future.
HMA receives order for Rieber Shipping newbuilding 300 at Ulstein
This vessel is ordered with a ultra high high reduncancy specification called "operation +", and will require a very sophisticated PMS and IACS for controlling totally six generators connected to four switchboards.
The PMS will include the HMA Demand Based Load Control System (DBLCS), which have become very popular among demanding offshore ship ovners over the last decade.
HMA developed this system during the demanding work with the Sea Launch Platform in 1998, whitch requiered a totally new way of controlling variable loads.
Since then more than 100 vessels have got this function to administrate the loads on board the vessel.
We feel this order is a confirmation from Rieber, that we have done a good job on the latest vessels delivered to this owner over the past years.
HMA Energy Management System
