GL to Provide DP Services to Hornbeck Offshore

USA’s Hornbeck Offshore Services (HOS) has selected GL Noble Denton to undertake dynamic positioning (DP) assurance services across the company’s technologically advanced fleet of vessels.

GL Noble Denton’s team of DP engineers will support HOS to further develop internal dynamic positioning operating standards across 55 DP-capable offshore service vessels and a fleet of new-build platform services vessels that HOS has announced will be delivered in the second quarter 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 state-of-the-art technology and the application of the procedures necessary to support safe DP operations.

In addition to developing a robust set of DP operating standards in conjunction with HOS, GL Noble Denton’s Houston-based marine warranty engineers and assurance team will deliver a major package of failure mode and effects analyses (FMEA), proving trials, annual DP trials, and capability analyses to the Hornbeck fleet.

Carl Annessa, Hornbeck Offshore Services’ Chief Operating Officer, said: “Hornbeck Offshore Services has a clear vision to remain at the forefront of the dynamic positioning quality assurance sector. GL Noble Denton is widely regarded as a thought leader in this sector, and we are pleased to partner with them to maintain our position as the premier operator of DP-equipped offshore petroleum support and service vessels.”

Craig Reid, GL Noble Denton’s Dynamic Positioning Services Manager for the Americas, added: “Hornbeck Offshore Services has taken a proactive approach to ensuring its fleet sets the benchmark for operational best practice in dynamic positioning. We are delighted that GL Noble Denton has been selected to help them achieve this.

“By sharing our expertise in this rapidly-developing sector, we will help to ensure that the DP systems onboard the company’s fleet of vessels adhere to industry-leading standards in safety, integrity and performance.”
