Future DP systems will have to be able to keep station in higher sea states than ever, to a greater accuracy and unaffected by random events. Considering FPSO station Ð keeping in deep water,heavy lift installation work,harbour manoeuvring and cargo transfer operations led Kongsberg Simrad,Det norske Veritas, the Norwegian Technical University in Trondheim, the Technical University in Delft and MARIN to take the initiative and form a Joint Industry Project ÒDP ExcellenceÓ. This project will reconsider the technology base for the next generation Ultra Reliable DP systems.
