ship dynamic positioning system (DPS)
The (redundant) AlphaDynaPos DP Dynamic Positioning System automatically controls a vessel's heading and position by activating thrusters based upon data as received from position reference systems, gyrocompasses, wind sensors and motion reference units. The Auto Track mode allows the ship to move along a pre-defined track at low speed as defined by the operator.
The AlphaDynaPos Joystick Control System (JC) is a basic version of the AlphaDynaPos DP system and allows the operator to automatically control the heading and manually position the vessel based upon data as received from gyrocompasses and wind sensors. The Alphadynapos DP and JC systems are suited for e.g. supply vessels, tug boats, dredgers, cable and pipe laying vessels, FPSO’s, heavy lift vessels and mega-yachts in full accordance with classification and IMO rules. The AlphaDynaPos is type approved according to Class 1, 2 and 3 in full accordance with classification and IMO rules.
