This publication covers the design, installation, operation and maintenance of DP systems for all types of ships. It examines DP functions and applications on offshore ships and includes the latest variants of position reference systems for dual frequency DGPS and relative GPS, including the CyScan laser and the latest Hi PAP technology from Simrad.

This book explains the principles of dynamic positioning and outlines the features of DP systems. It discusses use of DP for position referencing and manoeuvring, with a particular focus on offshore operations. It also looks at the role of the crew in watchkeeping and operational planning.

The Oilfield Seamanship series describes and explains standard techniques used in marine operations in offshore oilfields. The series concentrates on towing, anchor handling, barge mooring and moving, the operation of jack-up vessels afloat, the practice of stability control on semi-submersibles and ballast control techniques.
