Canada Chips In

August 17, 2012

The Canadian government, through the Atlantic Innovation Fund, kicked in C$3.2 million to help fund an $8.5 million oil & gas industry research project to improve DP operations in ice. Led by the Centre for Marine Simulation (CMS), the five-year project will be conducted through the National Research Council of Canada’s ocean, coastal and river engineering facilities in St John’s, Newfoundland. Kongsberg Maritime, commercialization partner in the program, will provide DP equipment, engineering services and some funding. Pictured are Kongsberg area sales manager Clayton Burry with CMS applied research and industrial projects manager Maria Halfyard and director Capt Christopher Hearn.
