Navy Sandnessjøen delivers maritime electronics and also carry out service on electronic equipment to commercial customers who carry passengers and cargo along the Norwegian coast. The vessels shown below are some of the ones we serve.
Sandnessjøen harbour is located in the center of the region Helgeland, and this region is one of the most productive ones within Fish Farming in Norway.
Navy Sandnessjøen has a long tradition within sales and installation of electronic fishfinding equipment and we installed our first echosounder in the early fifties.
There are several oilfields offshore of the coast of Helgeland and Sandnessjøen.
Navy Sandnessjøen is located in the town Sandnessjøen along with the Offshore Supply Base. This Offshore Base serves the two Production Vessels «Skarv FPSO» and «Norne FPSO» in addition to several rigs that carries out surveys on the oilfields offshore the coast of Helgeland.
Aquaculture is a rapidly developing industry, which is reflected in the need for new, efficient specialist vessels. It requires companies that can supply subsea services, as well as companies that can install moorings, carry out ROV surveys, clean seines, clean and inspect aquaculture net pens, and provide cargo and towing services.
Dynamic positioning (DP) is a method that automatically holds vessels in the same position above the seabed with the aid of the vessel's thrusters and propellers. A DP system makes use of satellites and the vessel’s electronic data collection systems, thrusters, rudder, main propeller and transponders.
AIS is an abbriviation for «Automatic Identification System». This type of equipment is imposed on commercial vessels and fishing vessels above a certain size. AIS is developed as an anti-collision-device that makes it possible to detect other vessels that can’t be detected by radar (e.g. if the vessel is behind a mountain) within a limited range similar to VHF). AIS targets can be viewed on the internet using the free link www.marinetraffic.com, but beware that this website doen’t have 100% full coverage along the coast.
The Norwegian Coast Authorities also have a chain of AIS receivers giving full coverage of the Norwegian coast, but you have to subscribe to use this service.
Smaller vessels can also use the AIS system, by having AIS-receivers or AIS-tranceivers (the latter also transmits the vessels AIS data) which can be connected to the vessels chartplotter for vewing purposes. AIS used by commercial vessels are classified as Class A. and have an output power of 12W with a high output-rate. Smaller vessels use Class B with 2W or 5W with a lower outputrate.
Navy Sandnessjøen install both AIS class A and B on commersial, fishing and other vessels. We have also our own AIS receiver which relay received AIS-data to www.marinetraffic.com.
