At the end of the course, the aim is that the participant should have acquired knowledge of the principles of Dynamic Positioning.
• Set up a dynamic positioning system and have an understanding of the practical operation of associated equipment including position referencing systems
• Recognise and respond to the various alarms, warning and information messages
• Relate the DP installation to the ship’s system e.g. power supply, manoeuvring facility, available position referencing systems and nature of work
• Relate DP Operations to the existing environmental conditions of wind, sea state, current and vessel movement
• Definition of DP, elements of the DP system, DP systems redundancy, and Class Requirements
• Functions of the DP system, and DP principles
• Different types of DP vessels and DP operations, sensors and use of sensor inputs
• Introduction to position reference systems and the DP system’s use of position measurements
• Vessel capability, DP consequence analysis and DP capability analysis
• Thrusters and manoeuvring systems
• Power systems and Blackout Prevention
• Operational procedures for DP operation, and procedures for operating the DP system
• Study of DP incidents
• Principal use of the DP system
The training will be a combination of theoretical lessons and practical exercises. During the course each participant will have his own operator station with generic DP software.
