DP Trials Report Now Available - 16/11/2011

As befits the 50th anniversary of the advent of dynamic positioning (DP), the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA, UK) has turned the spotlight on this technology. Earlier this year, ‘Guidance for developing and conducting annual DP trials programmes for DP vessels' (IMCA M 190) was published. Now a complementary publication ‘Example of an Annual DP Trials Report' (IMCA M 212) is available for free download from the IMCA website.


IMCA M 190 describes the development, conduct and management of annual DP trials programmes for all types of vessels equipped with DP systems meeting the requirements of International Maritime Organization (IMO) equipment classes 1, 2 or 3. The new slim volume, IMCA M 212, assists in the completion of these reports with worked examples, reflecting the guidance in IMCA M 190. Printed copies are available at GBP2.50 for members and GBP5.00 for non-members (plus 20% for delivery outside Europe).
