A view from the
Marine Technologies (MT) has earned an impressive reputation as an industry leader in the development and production of integrated control systems for offshore vessels since the company was established during 2002. Last featured in European Oil and Gas Magazine in February 2010, the company has continued to supply a host of positioning and control systems while expanding its portfolio with new products to navigate the vessels of the future. MT is headquartered in Mandeville, Louisiana, and operates offices in Norway, Singapore and Brazil to better serve its global client base. The company was originally founded with the objective of developing an improved dynamic positioning (DP) system. Within 16 months of the companyâ€™s inception, the first vessel equipped with MT technology was awarded DP-2 classification by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). Following on the heels of this success, the company continued to grow and has become a one-stop solution to the shipping and offshore industries. Its wide range of products includes a number of cutting-edge vessel control systems and related services that are packaged and delivered as type-approved solutions to meet a full range of IMO classes. MTâ€™s extensive product list includes
complete DP and joystick solutions provided by its Bridge Mate brand, as well as sophisticated bridge systems such as the MT Bridge Mate integrated bridge system (IBS), which carries DNV NAUT-AW class notation for enhanced nautical safety incorporating a built-in ground avoidance system (GAS). The NAUT-AW class represents the most comprehensive bridge class notation in the industry today, confirming MTâ€™s reputation as a world-class provider of state-of-the-art vessel positioning and control solutions. Marine Technologies has far surpassed its original goal to develop a superior DP system in compliance with IMO guidelines for DP-2 class. Its commitment to support market demand with cost-effective DP systems has led MT to deliver more than three hundred systems worldwide, the majority of which are DP-2 class design. Bridge Mate DP systems have penetrated the maritime marketplace, earning the company a trusted reputation for bringing added safety through functional design and software, reduced installation and servicing costs, less commissioning time and improved spare parts availability, as well as superior fleet management though the ability to offer remote operation and service assistance.
