USE OF THRUSTERS FOR POSITIONING ON FPSO'S

A vast number of Floating Production Storage and Offloading Systems (FPSOs) operating around the world are being positioned by means of a mooring system without the use of thrusters. By introducing thrusters with an automatic control system, several advantages are offered to the field operator. Experience from vessels equipped with thrusters and associated control systems, and by simulating the performance of thruster configurations on various vessels, reinforces this view.
