Technical Lecture of the IMarEST South East England & London Home Counties Branch, presented by Sen Abhayasinghe, CEng CMarEng FIMarEST Group Technical Authority DP Services, London Offshore Consultants Limited Abstract The purpose of Dynamic Positioning systems (DP) is to enable a vessel or a rig at sea to maintain a predetermined geographical position and heading over the seabed using its propulsion and/or thruster systems to generate thrusts that nullify the effects of environmental forces predominantly wind, current and wave actions. DP System enables position and orientation of a DP asset, whether fixed or moving, to be safely and accurately controlled. For certain offshore operations, it is required to maintain position of a DP asset continuously for certain period even after a fault in any DP associated system to mitigate the risk of damage to lives and assets.

Ability to maintain position continuously and accurately after a fault in a system is dependent upon the availability of thrust power and control systems, and the state of environmental forces under which the vessel is being operated. The presentation will address the concept of Dynamic Position, its application and modes of system failures and their effects.
