We very much appreciate the efficient way in which Wartsila has responded to the need for upgraded sensor technology, which will be used with our own SeaStream DP system. This certainly advances the safety of SOV operations around wind farm structures, says Chris Bannigan, Global Market Leader for Offshore Support Vessels, GE Power Conversion.
A DP system, which will integrate morphology-based feature extraction and molecular technology, will serve physicians as they attempt to understand the tumor microenvironment activity to allow them to predict response, or resistance to, immune checkpoint inhibitors.
GE's latest SeaStream DP system is a mariner-focused solution, enhancing situational awareness and rebalancing attention from system management to true seamanship.
The DP system mainly consists of power system, thruster, control system, position reference system, etc.
DP system structure: ASK--Automatic Station Keeping; SPU--Signal Processing Unit; HART--Highway Addressable Remote Transducer Protocol
Enhancements, such as the SIMOPS feature, add an additional safety layer to operations, and the graphics display can be used with manual controls in the unlikely event of total failure of the DP system. The software requires minimal installation and operation training; a simulator device is available for crew training.
Dynamic Positioning (DP) of the vessels is, therefore, crucial to their successful operation, and it is critically important that the energy supply to the DP system is reliable and efficient.
“The nature of the work carried out by the vessel demands that our DP system is continuously fed with good quality position reference data.
The towing and anchoring equipment is supplied by Fukushima of Japan and the DP system is equipped and commissioned by Converteam of the UK.
Instead of the firing pin thrusting the locking flaps out at the front of the bolt body, the DP system cams the rear of the locking flaps out into the locking recesses on the receiver walls.
With a DP system all other coils will require a smaller pumping head whereas in a CP system balancing valves will make all branches have the same head requirement.
