Global Maritime is a global industry leader in the marine assurance of dynamically positioned vessels and the digitalization of these services.

Our focus is on Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), supporting trials and operations and the digitalization of these services. We collaborate with clients to reduce their costs by managing risk and minimizing the probability of incidents, downtime, and off-hire.

  • FMEAs, FMECAs and Trials

Global Maritime and Unisea have developed a DP Module which provides one cost effective solution for all DP Assurance needs. All DP documentation and verification activities will be handled in this DP Module, ensuring a streamlined collaboration between Vessel, Shipowner and Global Maritime.

The implementation of the DP Module will reduce overall cost for owners of their DP assurance by minimizing administration costs, improving planning and communications with all stakeholders and reducing time onboard for the trials.

The DP Module will ultimately improve the verification of test results, minimize risk through improved lessons learned and significantly improve both control and overview of all DP related documentation and activities.
