Dynamic positioning and mooring analysis


We show you the capabilities of your vessel or rig and provide documented system performance to comply with class notations.

A robust and efficient DP and/or mooring system is essential for a competitive station-keeping solution. Analysis of system performance is required to optimise design and ensure sufficient appropriate operability

DNV GL is ready to support you with your dynamic positioning (DP) mooring and layup analysis needs.

We offer an entire range of relevant analyses in collaboration with DNV GL Oil & Gas, including DP capability, ERN evaluation, heading analysis and layup, among others.

These analysis services can be booked together – enabling you to enjoy streamlined, accurate processes at a potentially lower cost. They can also be booked separately for validation purposes. Either way, thanks to our close relations to the approval bodies, we deliver precisely what you need.

Our holistic approach guarantees you have the information you need, with an expert interpretation for effective dynamic positioning. We also specialise in DP-assisted mooring analysis, which is particularly relevant for station-keeping or Floating Production Storage and Offloading Units (FPSO).

Benefit from our one-stop shop for all your station keeping needs:

  • The confidence of knowing you have a pragmatic solution tailored to your needs
  • Show you are in compliance with the latest requirements from the approval bodies
  • Streamlined processes from a single source with a dedicated contact person
