BV approves DP digital survey procedure
Bureau Veritas has given approval in principle to Kongsberg Maritime’s Dynamic Positioning Digital Survey application.
Since successful pilot trials last year with BOURBON Offshore, BV and Kongsberg Maritime have been assessing the results.
Now BV has decided to permit vessel owners and operators to perform DP Annual trials using the DPDS application.
According to Kongsberg Maritime, the application digitizes all data drawn from the DP Annual tests (in accordance with IMO MSC Circ 1580 guidelines and IMCA M 190), to verify the performance and redundancy of the vessel’s DP system.
