Dynamic Positioning


Dynamic positioning, commonly known as DP allows a personto maintain the heading and position of a vessel with the use of its thrustersand propellers. It is a computer controlled system that uses inputs of gyrocompasses, motion sensors and wind sensors combined with position referencesystems. Dynamic positioning counters the environmental forces acting on thevessel by the means of active thrust. Dynamic Positioning Course educates andhelps a DP Operator deliver the following benefits:

·        Unprecedentedflexibility for effective maritime operations.

·        Anenergy-efficient nautical system to reduce operational costs and emissions.

·        A fullyintegrated system configured for optimum power & propulsion performance.
