The Remote DP Annual Trials (*) are almost to be considered as an alternative to the conventional “attended” trials and they became a known practice among the offshore stakeholders. We have consolidated this practice with some protype project since 2015. Under the scenario of the unmanned ships, “remote” tools may play a certain role on the ground of marine connectivity and ship’s computerization.
Remote DP Trials have their plus and their minus for sure, but world is going through the direction of e-applications and remote control. Therefore we pursued this must: to research and develop a solution appropriate to the term “remote” based on our experience of DP Auditors. We finally launched BeReady, the web-application dedicated to schedule, document, validate the remote trials for the purpose of the DP Annual Audit Report.
ing. Gennaro Russolillo, GM di Medea commented.
By Remote DP Annual Trials + BeReady:
- the DP Auditor prepare the ship-specific annual prgramme (enrolled over 12 month) specifico per la nave,
- the vessel’s manager may schedule the DP trials in consideration of vessel’s idle periods,
- the vessel’s crew may carry out the test under the step-by-step guidance given by BeReady,
- the DP Auditor may assess and validated the test
- the fleet manager may monitor the process from the data entry till the final IMCA report.
The benefits of the Remote DP Trials are multiple: for example trials can be planned / rolled out in 12months time span; tests can be carried out during idle or waiting periods; no need for a DP auditor to attend (cost-effective). The benefits of BeReady are those one mutuated from the web-app technology of mobility, multi-level and multi-access content management.
BeReady is free of charge and included in the package of DP Annual Audit.
BeReady can be also implemented whitin Neptunus as module or kept independent on a dedicated platform.
