Veripos has announced that the company will be co-hosting an Offshore Positioning Industry Workshop – The latest Position Monitoring Technology, Radisson Blu, Ålesund, Norway, May 22, 2014.
This industry event is aimed at Captains, owners, operators and DPOs and is a free one-day user workshop focusing exclusively on the latest advances in DP reference sensor technologies.
The workshop will be split into two sessions during the morning’s technical presentation, attendees will gain valuable insight into how Veripos constantly improves the accuracy and reliability of its GNSS satellite services; how Sonardyne uses aided inertial techniques to extend the performance of USBL and LUSBL acoustics; and why Guidance Marine’s laser and radar sensors are the preferred choice of major DP manufacturers.
Company experts will present real world examples of these technologies reducing vessel downtime, lowering operational costs and minimising risk.
Parallel workshop streams will form the afternoon session. In the very popular hands-on Usability stream, product engineers will answer questions about using current generation PME systems, while the Future Capability stream will provide the opportunity to influence the position reference equipment of the future.
All input provided will be fed directly back to each company’s research and development teams and will shape the future of vessel dynamic positioning.
