    This guide covers the principles and procedures of dynamic positioning (DP). It focuses on topics such as:

    • Planning and operations (including risk assessment, operation and contingency planning)
    • equipment
    • missionspecific DP operations (including offshore support, pipe lay operations and heavy lift/crane operations).

    The second edition has been fully revised and updated and includes a new chapter on DP incident investigation, as well as new sections on mission specific project planning.
