Rolls-Royce: New OSV Command & Control Rolls-Royce announced that an offshore vessel currently under construction for Simon Møkster Shipping will be the Þ rst in the world to feature the new Rolls-Royce Uni Þ ed Bridge solution. The innovation from Rolls-Royce is designed to simplify and unify the range of control levers, console panels and displays for the various onboard systems. It is designed to provide the operators with enhanced ergonomics and simpli Þ ed operation enhancing operator and crew safety, while improving task efÞ ciency. The layout can be tailored to meet the complex needs of any vessel. The Uni Þ ed Bridge sets a new standard for the high-tech working environment in the command centre of these advanced ships.Rolls-Royce has delivered advanced bridge solutions since 1998, and at the same time invested in human-centered re-search on vessel operations. The futuristic looking but very real Uni Þ ed Bridge is based on the consolidated experiences of both crews and researchers. The Þ rst commercial installation of the Rolls-Royce Uni Þ ed Bridge solution will be on an off- shore platform supply vessel (PSV) for Norwegian ship-owner Simon Møkster Shipping. This advanced UT 776 WP wave piercing platform supply vessel (PSV) is currently being built in Spain by the yard Astilleros Gondan. The vessel design, main systems and equipment are provided by Rolls-Royce. On completion in 2014 she will go on charter with Statoil for operation in the North Sea and the High North.MR #3 (50-58).indd 57MR #3 (50-58).indd 572/28/2013 2:48:58 PM2/28/2013 2:48:58 PM
