Dynamic Positioning montage

DP Services

With a multidisciplinary team of technical and operational resources, MAC provides dynamic positioning (DP) related services to help our clients to select, integrate, operate and verify according to their specific vessel application. Whether identifying the safest operational mode or verifying the worst case failure mode through FME(C)A or proving an installation through FMEA or annual DP trials, MAC aims to provide clients with effective recommendations to enhance safe operability at all times. Through our experience with our DP FMECA work and extensive systems knowledge, we also provide analysis and solutions for our clients to allow them to operate their vessels in the most cost effective/commercially viable way. This can include analysis on potential upgrade or conversion work and mission equipment system interface/integration analysis.
