Dynamic positioning systems
The Rolls-Royce Marine DP1 and DP2 (dynamic positioning) systems are developed with the CDP platform. The DP systems are safety-critical systems as they allow a vessel to remain at a fixed point, independent of weather conditions. Vessels often operate in close proximity of offshore oil installations.
Rolls-Royce Marine AS also use CDP as an all-encompassing control system platform for control systems for navigation, propulsion, handling, maneuvering, tank leveling, anti-roll systems and more. CDP is currently used in more than 1500 control systems delivered by Rolls-Royce Marine. Many of these systems have been in operation for many years, running on rugged, but affordable hardware.
