Book "Principles of Dynamic Positioning"
Dynamic Positioning is a separate philosophy. Vessels with DP system can hold a position or follow a predefined track with high accuracy. In order to control such a system, a separate competence is required, which implies attending of specific training courses. This explains the high payroll of experienced DP operators.
But a DP system is reliable when all its components are reliable. Being a part of the DP system, the DP operator must know the system arrangement and monitor its correct functioning. Having extensive experience with the DP system and being an instructor of DP courses in the training center, I wrote the book "DP Concept”, which gives the concept of this comprehensive and very interesting topic.
It took over three years to complete the writing of the book, DP Concept. I tried to focus on the basic concepts and principles and talk about complex things in simple words. This book will be useful to everyone who is at the stage of training and obtaining DP competency (DP Induction and DP Simulator courses). And also, who want to refresh their knowledge of the theory of Dynamic Positioning.
The book is available in digital copy (pdf). Buy the book now and become better than others.
