Dynamic position thrusters

Complex systems with complex challenges

As drill ships and semi-submersible rigs move into deeper waters, dynamic positioning thrusters are keeping them where they need to be.

Compared to jack-up barges and conventional anchoring methods, these computer-controlled propulsion units offer several advantages, including quick set-up, easy manoeuvrability and no need for anchor handling tugs. Of course, dynamic position thrusters are complex systems that have their own set of challenges, from high installation and fuel costs to diver safety hazards and demanding maintenance requirements.
