INTEGRATED BRIDGE & DYNAMIC POSITIONING SYSTEM & AUTOMATION
MT was established in 2002 with a goal to develop a better dynamic positioning (DP) system. Within sixteen months, the first vessel equipped by MT was awarded a DP-2 classification by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). Today, MT has become a one-stop resource for shipping and offshore industries, offering numerous vessel control systems and related services. MT produces and delivers type-approved DP systems of all IMO classes, as well as less complex DP and joystick solutions. But, if it’s sophistication that’s needed, MT’s Bridge Mate™ Integrated Bridge System (IBS) holds the DNV GL type approval of NAUT-AW – the most comprehensive bridge class notation in the industry today.

The Bridge Mate Integrated Bridge System (IBS) concept is based on segregated architecture comprising a dual redundant network, flexible console and monitor solutions, and extremely durable marine-approved computers without fans or hard disks. The Bridge Mate IBS is designed to optimize the human-machine interface, taking into account that different information is required depending on the type of operation at hand.
All applications, such as ARPA radar, ECDIS, conning, ICAS, cameras, sensor control and monitoring, etc., are readily available on any Multi-Function Workstation (MFW), giving the operator unique redundancy and flexibility. As an option, Marine Technologies (MT) offers secure satellite communication solutions for remote diagnostic and monitoring of IBS functions, enhancing operations and enabling more cost efficient system maintenance.
MT has targeted the offshore market, but the Bridge Mate IBS is adaptable to the requirements of all sea-going ship types. It is designed to meet all International Maritime Organization (IMO) and classification societies‘ requirements, all the way up to one-man bridge operation.
The initial objective of MT was to develop a DP system that complied with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) guidelines for a DP 2 class system. Only sixteen months after the foundation of the company in 2002, the first vessel with a DP system from MT received its DP-2 notation from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). The vessel, M/V AMBER, is a 280′ OSV owned by the Edison Chouest Offshore companies on charter to BHP Billiton. Since that time, MT has delivered more than 590 systems worldwide, the majority being DP class 2.
