Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO)

Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) is responsible for the safe station keeping of the vessel. He/she is the primary watch keeper at the Dynamic Positioning (DP) control desk. He/she operates and monitors the D.P. system when the vessel is in D.P. Mode and monitors logistical operations associated with the vessel. (i.e. movement of supply vessels and helicopters)

Dynamic Positioning System is a computerized ship control system, using forward and stern thrusters ( propellers ) in combination with ship’s main engine and rudder to remain in a constant position, regardless of wind and/or current. Mostly used during offshore operations when necessary for ship to stay within a few metres of an installation without touching it. The system can be controlled through an “joystick”.
