DP for Viking Grace

Navis Engineering reports that it has delivered its dynamic positioning system to the cruise ferry Viking Grace.

The 214-m long Viking Grace, delivered to Viking Lines by the STX Europe shipyard in Turku on January 10, 2013, aims to run as an ‘environmentally-friendly’ ship, being the first large scale passenger ferry to be powered by liquefied natural gas.

The DP system delivered by Navis Engineering is a non-redundant DP0 (joystick control system) solution comprising two control stations located in the wheelhouse wings.

It will be used mostly for docking the cruise ferry at points on the Turku – Mariehamn – Stockholm route.
