More autonomous vessel tests

18 March, 2019

Components for autonomous vessel-testing in the model test laboratory is being continuously improved. Since the launch of the service in June 2018, new tests have been performed.

“The propulsion units have been upgraded and a joint project regarding dynamic positioning in ice is currently on-going,” says Development Engineer Jukka-Pekka Sallinen.

“Navis NavDP system and ABB AbilityTM Marine Pilot Control systems have been successfully integrated and tested in Aker Arctic’s model test facilities. DIVECTM has proved to be a powerful tool for interfacing different DP provider’s systems with Aker Arctic’s model test system.” 

The DIVECTM software architecture allows adding third-party software components, according to the purpose of the testing situation. A demonstration where a model avoids changing obstacles on its way from departure to destination and back can be found on Aker Arctic’s Youtube channel.
