Dynamic Positioning System Technologies for Ice-rich Environments

Lay Summary 

This project aims to develop dynamic positioning system technologies specifically for ice-rich environments. The dynamic positioning system will enable vessels engaged in the exploration and production phases of the offshore petroleum industry to operate safely and efficiently in ice. A training simulator will be developed for prototype testing and for the preliminary training of appropriate personnel. This will lead to the development of a commercial dynamic positioning in ice product for real-time operations.
