New DP System for Inland Vessels

The Rhodium DPT4500 Dynamic Positioning and Tracking System is being commissioned onboard.Recently RH Marine successfully commissioned the Rhodium 4500 Dynamic Positioning (DP) and Tracking System on the ‘Noordzee’, the new flagship of Hakkers.

Hakkers is a specialist in the development, production and realisation of excavation, dredging, construction, foundation, coastal and shoreline works. This inland multipurpose vessel can be used for lifting, dredging or pile driving. The vessel required a system that could automatically hold position and maintain track with high accuracy on low speed, which is helpful to optimise operations. DP for inland multipurpose vessels is complex since these ships have to take a variety of movements, loading conditions and currents into account. RH Marine integrated the Rhodium DPT4500 system on board to help Hakkers maximise the operational capabilities together with sister company Radio Holland who supplied and installed the navigational sensors.
