In the traditional azimuth propulsion system the motor is inside the ship's hull and the propeller is driven through shafts and gearboxes. In the Azipod system the electric motor is inside the pod, and the propeller is connected directly to the motor shaft. By not using a traditional propeller shaft, the propeller can be farther below the stern of the ship in a clear flow of water providing greater hydrodynamic and mechanical efficiency. Electric power for the Azipod motor is conducted through slip rings that allow the Azipod to rotate through 360 degrees. Because fixed pitch propellers are used in Azipods, power for an Azipod system is always fed through a variable-frequency drive or cycloconverter that allows speed and direction control of the propulsion motors.

what is dynamic positioning.mp4
Dynamic Positioning (DP) and Dynamic Tracking (DT) are methodologies to keep a vessel at a certain position (DP) or track (DT) using thrusters instead of mooring lines. By measuring its position (and heading) and comparing it to the required position, the DP system on board can determine its position error. The control system reacts on that by determining what thruster action is needed to bring the vessel as close as possible to the required position. DP systems can nowadays be found on many types of vessels: drilling vessels, installation vessels, heavy lift vessels, cable and pipelaying vessels and FPSOs..

Two offshore vessels collided in Aberdeen.flv
Footage has been captured of an offshore vessel being involved a three-ship collision at Aberdeen Harbour. SBS Typhoon (IMO 9355965) collided with VOS Scout (IMO 8104125) head-on and forced her into the Ocean Searcher (IMO 7401306). SBS Typhoon's owners, SBS Marine, said the accident was caused by a software fault. SBS Marine managing director Nigel Taylor said the accident happened as a result of a glitch in fitting new, high-tech equipment. He said: "We were in the process of installing a new dynamic positioning system. We were doing checks on the system and had to have the engine running. There was a fault in the software. The controls were fully manned at the time, as were the other two vessels. No one was hurt. There was some damage caused to our ship and to VOS Scout and minor damage to Ocean Searcher. "Damage was caused to the bow of our vessel but all three vessels remained water tight." He added that the YouTube footage appeared to be speeded up (Bart: Doesn't look like it to me!). All involved ships & crew are ok ...

The adjustable bolted propeller allows the most efficient blade matching for optimum efficiency, while simplifying the installation process. The Kamewa range of ABP is based on a hollow hub with blades bolted to it from the inside. A unique feature is the method of bolting the blades to the hub using simple hand tools. In comparison to conventional monobloc fixed pitch propellers the ABP has higher quality blade machining and educed overall weight, which give easier shipment, handling and mounting. The slotted holes on the hub allow the blade pitch angle to be conveniently adjusted at commissioning, or in service to compensate for long-term variations in hull resistance. Individual blades can be replaced without dry docking, and only spare blades have to be stocked rather than a complete monobloc propeller. Key features: • Spare propeller not needed, thus short pay-off compared to FPP • Slotted holes on the hub allow stepless blade pitch angle adjustment • Stainless steel or NiAl-bronze blades • 4, 5 or 6 blades available • Simpler, less costly installation at the shipyard. Match marking not needed • Smaller, lighter components mean lower costs for shipment, storage and handling • Individual blades can be replaced if damaged • Easy underwater installation and replacement of blades • Hollow hub reduces total weight and extends bearing life • Higher accuracy than a monobloc propeller since individual parts are machined more efficiently • No limitation in size or weight

How to Convert a Ship into DP.mp4
We have heard of ships constructed for dedicated purposes. For e.g. oil tanker is constructed of transporting oil, whereas a drill ship is constructed for taking out oil from the ocean floors. But here is a technology that helps in converting any ship into a dynamic positioning (D.P) vessel. The Hi-load technology or the Hi-load attachment technology as it is better known, helps in converting a vessel into a dynamic positioning (DP) vessel. The Hi-load technology consists of an external attachment which is fitted to the ship. The ship along with the Hi-load technology is called as a Hi-load unit. Some of the applications of Hi-load unit includes offshore loading of crude oil, detachable turret mooring systems for FSOs and FPSOs, and add on propulsion for semis, barges, and ship shape hulls.

The Triple-E_ Efficient propulsion_ breaking conventions
Triple-E class vessels mark a major break from convention in hull and engine design. 
 Moving the engines further to the back of the vessel allows space for additional containers, improving the economies of the vessel further.
 These changes, along with super long-stroke engines, lead to greatly enhanced fuel efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions by some 50 per cent compared to industry average on the Asia-Europe trade lane.
 The propulsion comes from two engines and two propellers. Accordingly a twin island hull design is applied.

Dynamic Positioning System by Volvo.mp4
Dynamic Positioning System Press a button and the Dynamic Positioning System holds your boat´s heading and keeps it within a very limited area, even in a current or in windy conditions. A perfect feature for waiting at the fuel dock or for a bridge or lock to open. When docking, the Dynamic Positioning System gives you time to "freeze the moment" so that your crew can prepare fenders and lines totally stress free. Hold the position! When activated, the Dynamic Positioning System automatically holds your boat´s heading and keeps it within a very limited area. The system uses twin GPS receivers in the special antenna to determine the boat's position and heading. Sophisticated and specially developed software in the EVC system transforms this data into steering angles, gear shifts and throttle positions to keep the boat still. Engines, pods and propellers are therefore active and your boat should be regarded as under way with the driver responsible. No one should, of course, be in the water close to the boat.
