System features manual control of engines and thrusters with single joystick as well as automatic position keeping.
Despite having same functionality and operation philosophy, JP4000 is not a full scale dynamic positioning system. It is designed to be operated by navigator offering much more simple control comparing to DP.
Typical applications where this system proves to be very useful:
- Survey boats
- Fire fighting boats
- Coast guard boats
- Wind farm crew transfer vessels
- Fish farm service vessels
- Work boats
The minimal propulsion configuration is 2 propellers with 2 rudders and a bow thruster. Same time it is necessary to mention that system is not a magic stick and performance depends heavily on boat and propulsion design.
