FEBRUARY 7, 2017— GE’s Marine Solutions (NYSE: GE) newly launched SeaLyte vessel control and dynamic positioning (DP) system provides a structured and standardized package for customers with smaller vessels in the offshore support and merchant markets.
Reduced hardware embedded in the system brings reduced complexity, leading to a lower cost.
The SeaLyte solution comprises two standalone products: the SeaLyte Vessel Control System (VCS) and SeaLyte DP. Both can be fully integrated into one package or used independently with third-party technologies, providing flexibility to accommodate and integrate with existing or pre-selected sub-systems on board vessels.
SeaLyte has an intuitive touch screen with high-resolution graphics that is suitable for use with third-party sub-systems.
SeaLyte VCS sits at the heart of a vessel’s automation process. Its integrated functions include machinery alarm and monitoring, machinery and auxiliary systems control, optional power management and mission-specific systems such as cargo handling.
SeaLyte DP System is an automatic position and heading control system with manual and automatic position control, heading control, joystick maneuvering and a user-friendly interface to ships’ systems and reference equipment.
SeaLyte DP is Class 1 and Class 2 compliant. There are a number of options for the operator station available with different levels of sophistication and corresponding levels of functionality to cost-effectively meet the needs of each ship owner, shipbuilder and DP operator.
