Opinion after software upgrade of DP Control System:

“Actually, this updated software is perfect!

There are new Min Power Heading and Hold Area modes when vessel is on standby outside of installation’s 500m zone. When these modes are ON, diesel generator power consumption is minimum in compare to previous Dynamic Positioning  software version, 1 x Bow thrusters (BT) is stopped and ready for auto start on demand by DP system. No more noise from thrusters high RPMs. Vessel is like weathervaning and following environmental forces within predefined by DP operator sector.

Full DP Mode: Bow thruster Group Bias – Excellent function. Bow thruster are working in opposite direction to avoid frequent clutching in and thus saving bow thrusters contactors. Same, one Bow thruster is running and in case the system demands more than 25% of thruster force, then 2nd bow thruster is being started and working in required direction.


Main benefits
The simplest system on the market
Less noise
More comfort for your passengers
Less fuel consumption

Position keeping

Our system keeps the ship position automatically in areas where it is not allowed to use an anchor.
Operator can start with minimal thruster configuration required for the current sea state and increase that when necessary, system for sure shall let him know on lack of power.
That helps to reduce noise and vibration and optimise fuel saving.


System requires almost no time at all to start operation.


Thanks to HIL-test of every single system we made, we deliver perfectly polished system to minimise required time for commissioning and sea-trails.
During one of our latest deliveries we completed sea trials in 4 hours. We know how expensive it is both for the operator and the yard to keep vessel running at this stage.
