Within the OCTOPUS system, the Operational Forecast gives offshore vessels a complete and total safe time window including a motion and DP Capability forecast for their weather-sensitive operations.
For vessels equipped with a Dynamic Positioning system, the Operational forecast includes a prediction if the vessel is capable to maintain her DP position during an operation. This leads to maximized workability, less fuel consumption and more productive hours during operations where the DP system is used. The thruster properties are used as input. The DP forecast indicates which headings the vessel is able to keep or not, based on the available and required thruster power. There is no direct link with the DP-system itself. The roll motion and DP Forecast can also be plotted in the 2-D Operational Window. The window gives the crew a clear view on how the expected forces have a different impact on the ship at a change of heading. This way the crew gets a clear forecast if the operation can be executed in the hours and days ahead, and under which heading this can safely be done.
