Rob Powell Industry Leave a Comment

ATLANTIC ENTERPRISE recently arrived at Tilbury docks for an upgrade.

Formerly known as GECO TRITON, the ship is the Atlantic Marine's new offshore mothership. According to 4coffshore.com, she is having the DP2 system installed, which is a dynamic positioning system to allow a vessel to maintain a static position using propellors and thrusters.

The 6414t vessel was built in 1970 and is 100 metres long.

Once her dynamic positioning system has been installed, she will be heading to a wind farm project in the German sector of the North Sea.
