From Non-Propelled to DP2 Self-Propelled

The JB117 and JB118 are suitable to be equipped with a Portable Dynamic Positioning System (DP 2) that turns our jack-ups from non-propelled to self-propelled . 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.
