A test in the towing tank can tell you something about how your vessel or offshore structure will behave in waves and current regarding the propulsive power, seakeeping performance, manoeuvring capabilities or dynamic positioning.
The DP system allows the vessel to operate at sea without mooring or anchoring.
Performance of model tests at the early design stage to evaluate manoeuvring characteristics.
Onboard decision support system
A module-based solution for monitoring your vessel while under way.
Testing whether an underwater structure can be over-trawled may indicate potentially critical areas.
