MILWAUKEE -- Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has awarded a $6.7 million-plus order to Rockwell Automation. Rockwell will deliver fully integrated safety solutions for Transocean, an important DSME customer. Rockwell will employ its large-project delivery management expertise to provide its PlantPAx Integrated Control Power and Safety Solution with the AADvance process safety system.
The contract covers deliveries to four new Transocean drillships, with options for six more ships. It follows a $6 million-plus order from DSME to Rockwell Automation for four new offshore drillships in 2011.
According to DSME, Rockwell offers a complete portfolio of offshore solutions and a proven, robust system for DSME to improve its system availability and enhance the safety systems for offshore applications, including drillships and rigs.
