            A visit on board a fairly modern MPSV (Multi-purpose Support Vessel)
            M/V Havila Harmony:

            MT 6010 design, built as a PSV in 2005 and converted to MPSV in 2007. Now working off Sabah, East Malaysia.

            Starting from the top. The Helideck:


            The mast is no longer a single "stick" but a kind of gantry construction:


            The Funnel is also different from the old days, it is non-existent.
            Exhaust pipes sticking up from the superstructure:

            Same on the other side.

            Fan Beam, used for positioning by Laser:

            A reflector is placed on the platform, rig or FPSO as a target. Laser beam is aimed at the target, which give the DP system a reference point. This keeps the vessel in position relative to even a moving target, without any human interference.

              View of the working deck from top of the bridge:


              The main "tool" of this vessel, a 150 t. SWL Active heave compensated (AHC) Offshore Crane:

              Able to set sub-sea equipment on the seabed in up to 2500 m. water depth.

                One of two ROVs permanently carried on board:

                Used to assist in setting things on the seabed, among other things.

                    A section of the Side Wall aft of the Crane has been removed to facilitate handling heavy equipment over side:


                    Taut Wire Positioning device:

                    This can be used in relatively shallow water (<300 m.) to give position reference. A weight is lowered down to seabed and the wire kept at constant tension (hence the name)
                    A sensor detect any movement out of vertical and the DP System corrects it, using the thrusters. (The early reference system for DP Operation was taut wire, or acoustic transponders on the seabed)

                    A little look inside one of the Life Boats:

                    Not very comfortable for 90 persons.
