The position keeping capability of a DP vessel is determined with a DP capability analysis. The results of the analyses are visualized in a polar plot, better known as a DP capability plot. DP capability analyses should be prepared for all DP vessels, regardless of DP equipment class.
The capability analysis can be used for benchmarking of different propulsion systems and thruster allocations.
We can prepare DP capability plots for your vessel or newbuild project. Our analyses are performed according to IMCA or DNV GL methods.
