Dynamic Positioning

Story Highlights:

  • The officer of the watch can manoeuvre the vessel at the touch of a joystick using RSV Nuyina’s dynamic positioning.

  • Six tunnel thrusters help the ship spin on a dime and hold a set position (dynamic positioning) with ±20m accuracy. Three thrusters at the bow and three at the stern each require 1300kW of electrical power for maximum thrust.

The thrusters will hold the ship in place during deployment of scientific equipment in a range of sea states, as well as during small boat deployment and cargo operations.
