Emerson to provide VRC system for offshore crane

Heerema Marine Contractors has chosen Emerson Automation Solutions, which has offices throughout North America, to provide a valve remote control (VRC) system for the world’s largest semi-submersible offshore crane vessel, SSCV Sleipnir, currently under construction at Sembcorp Marine’s shipyard in Singapore.

The 220 meter-long vessel is designed for the installation and removal of large offshore structures, such as oil and gas platforms, subsea production facilities, foundations, moorings and deep water floating structures.

Emerson’s experts worked with the stakeholders to design a custom, fully-redundant DamcosTM VRC solution for the ship’s fluid management and ballast systems that includes a total of 847 valves, actuators, local power units (LPUs) and eight interface cabinets connected by a P-NET communication bus.
