Dynamic Positioning (DP) use computerised systems to control the vessels position using thrusters. Because of the role toward efficiency and safety, DP systems are critical during offshore operations and require frequent inspections to ensure their high performance.
Our Dynamic Positioning (DP) assurance and FMECA services are used on all types of offshore support vessels, from large drillships to smaller high-speed offshore crew boats. Our clients include oil companies, offshore contractors, ship owners, shipyards and trade organisations.
Our global DP specialists have a strategic presence in all major offshore oil and gas locations. We provide vessel owners, customers and charterers with the skills and expertise to ensure the safety of DP vessels.
We work to international, national, class, International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) and Marine Technology Society (MTS) standards and guidance, as well as equipment-specific regulations–such as those for diving or crane equipment–and our own technical guidance notes.
