Dynamic Positioning (DP) Surveys & Inspections

LOC is specialised in the surveys and inspections of all kinds of Dynamic Positioning (DP) vessels with DP notations DP-1, DP-2 and DP-3. We have a track record of conducting work in accordance to IMO (International Maritime Organisation), Class Rules, IMCA (International Marine Contractors Association) and MTS (Marine Technology Society) requirements and guidance.

DP Assessments To The Highest Industry Standard

With an active DP steering group led by the Group Technical Authority, Sen Abhayasinghe, we set the internal standard, assessment, training and qualification requirements across the Group. The steering committee establishes up to date templates that comply with the latest classification society rules and industry guidance. Our DP service line is integrated with a monitoring and control process to ensure that quality of our products is always maintained to the highest industry standard.

Which vessels require DP inspections?

The use of dynamic positioned (DP) vessels has increased significantly over recent years. These specialised vessels are often required for many different environments and operational conditions. These include medium to deep water drilling, accommodation, construction and removal operations, wind farm installations, subsea activities (divers and ROV operations), pipe and cable-lay operations, shuttle tankers, automated thruster assisted moorings and weathervane operations.
