GE's Marine Solutions has appointed KDU Worldwide (KDU) as its value-added reseller for the product range of SeaStream and Sealyte dynamic positioning (DP) systems.

Through this appointment, KDU will have reselling rights of these GE products in the United Arab Emirates and Middle East, which includes Saudi Arabia. Through KDU's strong customer base in all key markets, GE's DP systems will be able to reach more customers and help local mariners achieve more efficient marine operations.

GE's latest SeaStream DP system is a mariner-focused solution, enhancing situational awareness and rebalancing attention from system management to true seamanship. The system incorporates an energy-efficient mode, which allows operators to optimize fuel consumption, helping to reduce operational costs and emissions. The system uses predictive software to anticipate position variation and uses advanced algorithms to optimize vessel heading to further reduce power consumption.


The SeaLyte solution streamlines tried, tested and trusted SeaStream technology, offering a range of configurable options within a standardized package to help customers achieve their performance goals more cost-effectively.
