Dynamic Positioning is an automated computer system which keeps an offshore vessel in its specified position or heading in deeper waters where anchoring or mooring is not feasible.DP Systems are vital for safety operations such as deep water drilling (Drillships, Mobile Offshore Drilling Units), anchor handling (Anchor handling tug supply vessel operation for anchoring of non-DP MODU), supply for oil rigs and platforms (entry to the 500m safety zone of offshore installation), subsea construction, ROV Support etc. This is a safe, fast and reliable tool to perform daily offshore operations.

Vessels frequently need to conduct operations of a safety-critical nature, close to platforms or other fixed structure. During such operations, it is essential that the vessel is able to perform maximum efficiency, and this includes the competence of Watch keeping Officers, and DP Operators, who must be properly trained.
