Description: Dynamic positioning is a complex subject with a wide range of systems and applications. This book comprehensively explains DP principles and procedures for all users, reinforcing the theory throughout with full-colour illustrations and photographs.
The publication is divided into the following sections:
This section describes the components and controls of a DP system and illustrates different system layouts and configurations. It looks in detail at position measurement, position keeping, system tests, Class requirements and the functions available to the DP operator. It also describes planning of a DP operation, including risk assessment, operational considerations, safety features and contingency plans.
This section details the use, limitations and system checks for a wide range of DP components and equipment, including differential GNSS, FANBEAM and CyScan systems, Artemis, taut wire, RADius and RadaScan systems, HPR and HAIN systems, gyrocompass, motion reference unit/vertical reference unit, wind sensors and thrusters.
This section looks at the trials and checks that are required to ensure compliance with standards and guidelines. It describes processes for identifying critical single point failures, so that they can be eliminated or minimised at an early stage. It also describes common failures and emergencies, using case studies to illustrate how they may be avoided.
This section explains the principles and procedures of dynamic positioning in a number of applications, including diving, offshore drilling, ROV support, pipe and cable lay, anchor handling, heavy lifts, FPSOs, shuttle tankers, dredging and rock dumping. It identifies critical stages in these operations together with the applicable DP functions.
