Hornbeck Offshore uses GL Noble Denton Dynamic Positioning

Friday, August 24, 2012

Houston offshore supply vessel operator Hornbeck Offshore Services has signed a contract with consultancy GL Noble Denton to provide dynamic positioning assurance services for all of its vessels.

GL Noble Denton will help Hornbeck to develop dynamic positioning standards for 55 "DP capable" offshore service vessels and a fleet of new build platform services vessels to be delivered in Q2 of 2013.

Dynamic Positioning (DP) is a computer-controlled system that automatically maintains a vessel's position and heading. GL Noble Denton offers DP testing and assurance services to operators across the global offshore industry ensuring the safety, upkeep and proper function of this technology and the application of the procedures necessary to support safe DP operations.

GL Noble Denton's Houston-based marine warranty engineers and assurance team will deliver a package of failure mode and effects analyses (FMEA), proving trials, annual DP trials, and capability analyses to the Hornbeck fleet.
