DP Annual trials

In accordance with IMCA, the purpose of the DP trial is to prove the DP systems fully functional and well maintained – “to prove the redundancy concept is intact”.

Annual DP Trials should be performed once a year within 3 months of the anniversary of the vessels FMEA proving trials.

A test of all-important systems and components should be carried out to document the ability of the DP-vessel to keep position after single failures associated with the assigned equipment class.

IMO MSC requires:

Annual survey should be carried out within three months before or after the anniversary date of the initial survey. The annual surveys should ensure that the DP-system has been maintained in accordance with applicable parts of the guidelines and is in good working order.
