  • IMCA’s Technical Adviser and Workgroup Chairman to speak at 8th DP Asia Conference & Exhibition

The International Marine Contractors Association’s (IMCA) Captain Andy Goldsmith, Technical Adviser – Marine, and Captain Mike Meade of M3 Marine and Chairman of the IMCA Reactivation of DP Vessels Workgroup, will be speaking on important aspects of dynamic positioning (DP) at the 8th DP Asia Conference & Exhibition being held in Singapore 27-29 June 2018.

At the conference on 27 June 2018, Andy Goldsmith and Mike Meade will talk about the work of IMCA members in the Marine Division, with emphasis on current and future DP related activities. This will include the activities of two workgroups. One has developed a scheme for providing accreditation for DP practitioners, and the other has produced a valuable and concise aide memoire for members preparing to reactivate DP vessels following a period of lay-up.

They will also talk about guidance documents IMCA is currently working on and give an overview of the IMCA DP station keeping event reporting scheme.

IMCA has been at the forefront of DP since it was first introduced to the offshore industry. Guidance and station keeping event reports provided by IMCA members are widely used throughout the industry.

Captain Andy Goldsmith said: “Working with IMCA members on the Marine DP Committee, our efforts are concentrated on ensuring greater safety and operational efficiency within the DP fleet. This is reflected in our guidance documents, which are vital for the industry.”
