Portable DP2 System

The JB 117 and JB 118 are suitable to be equipped with a Portable Dynamic Positioning System (DP 2) that enables the units to operate between offshore work sites.

An Azimuth thruster will be place on each corner of the jack-up barge together with a power supply container. An additional 30’ container will be placed on the jack-up barge and will be used as a control room. Each thruster is fully retractable.

If required, the thrusters, together with the power supply containers and control room can be removed from the jack-up barge for world wide shipment. The units can also be installed on units and pontoons.
