In the last year, MARIN has been involved in the model testing of several dynamically positioned vessels. In most cases the objective of these tests is to assess the DP capabilities for both intact and failure cases. For some projects it is also important to investigate the relative motions with respect to other floaters that may be in close proximity of the DP vessel. Two major projects for drilling vessels are presented here.
