from concept to operation

Dynamic positioning is a state-of-the-art approach for the installation of foundations and transition pieces. To overcome vessel motions, compensation and control systems are integrated on board. Examples are motion compensated cranes, lifting equipment and pile grippers.
We carry out numerical assessments, model tests and develop interactive training simulators to demonstrate the feasibility of these innovative systems, and to optimise operations and the performance of the crew.
