Why DP Assurance?

Why DP Assurance?

The DP industry faces constant challenges as the offshore industry continues to evolve.  Numerous DP incidents occur each year which result in damage, delay or additional cost to projects. Many of these incidents occur due to simple errors, faults or misjudgements that may have been avoidable, or their impact lessened, had proactive steps been taken to specifically identify and manage those aspects of the DP operation. 

Position Inc provides DP Assurance services to assist projects achieve efficient, incident free operation.

Why conduct DP Assurance?

  • There has been a large increase in DP vessels of all types, used in a growing number of applications.
  • Reliance on traditional vessel quality assurance measures and certifications may not identify all critical DP risks.
  • There has been a large increase in the number of DP operators, coupled with the loss of experienced operators due to retirement or transition to other roles.
  • Several challenges exist with standards for DP certification and training. 
  • There is growing acknowledgement from all stakeholders, that DP related factors have significant impacts on project outcomes.
  • It is increasingly apparent that the development and implementation of new standards is gaining pace. Operators are becoming more committed to ensure new guidelines and standards are followed.
