Sea Launch Commander, Govan
The world's only ship capable of launching satellites from a mobile platform.
Approximate construction value: $975 million
Lateral Technologies & Solutions Ltd were appointed by Novenco Norway to provide engineers to carry out work on the innovative and challenging Sea Launch Project. The project was delivered by Kvaener Govan of Scotland and their parent yard in Norway.
Lateral Technologies & Solutions Ltd provided design engineers for all of the HVAC and controls systems, project managers for installation and cost control, and commissioning mangers for the complete construction and commissioning period. Each area of the ship had its own individual commissioning requirements but shared a common strategy for life support systems.
The commissioning of the systems took place at Govan in Scotland and St Petersburg in Russia where our engineers remained until successful sea trials had been undertaken on behalf of the operator. The commissioning was completed successfully on time and met all the critical and stringent requirements demanded by the client. The approximate value of the project was US $975 million.
