Project Engineers, Dynamic Positioning Systems (KM 21-036)

Our Integrated Solutions Division is responsible for product and technology development, supply chain operations and project delivery for all Kongsberg's Automation, Bridge Systems and Electro products and solutions. Since the development of the first Dynamic Positioning system in the 1970's, Kongsberg Maritime has always been in the forefront of developing leading Automation and Bridge Systems, and the Integrated Solutions division is responsible for maintaining and further developing that substantial legacy.

Dynamic positioning (DP) is a system that automatically maintains a vessel's position and heading by using its own propellers and thrusters. This allows operations at sea where mooring and anchoring is not feasible. Dynamic positioning may either be absolute in that the position is locked relative to a fixed point over the seabed, or relative to a moving object such as another vessel or an underwater vehicle. Dynamic positioning is frequently used in the offshore industry worldwide.
