SolstadFarstad contracts Global Maritime and UniSea for DP assurance software solutions

New Norwegian offshore marine giant SolstadFarstad is showing a preference for fleet-wide deals signing up Global Maritime and UniSea for five years to provide dynamic positioning (DP) assurance software solutions for its vessels.

The biggest DP assurance contract ever for Global Maritime is designed to make the implementation and documentation of DP testing easier and will be integrated with SolstadFarstad's current on-board software.

“We are delighted to be signing the biggest contract in Global Maritime’s history for the implementation and documentation of dynamic positioning assurance on client vessels”, said Egil Kvannli, ceo of Global Maritime.

“Offshore businesses must change to become more digital and Global Maritime and UniSea are leading the way in delivering innovative and cost-effective digital solutions across the industry. We hope that other companies will follow suit.”

It is the second digital deal that SolstadFarstad has done for its fleet in two weeks and last week contracted Global Navigation Systems (GNS) for its digital and paper navigation requirements.
