Operational efficiency-enhancing presentation options based on DPM®
Based on winch wire paid-out length measurements and model-based processing, the Anchor Position Estimator (APE) supports the operator by presenting the positions of the swing winch anchors. Features include the following:
- anchor positions related to dredger and bottom profile
- advice on anchoring area in view of effective holding force for optimal production
- alarm on improper anchor dragging.
The DPM can also be applied as an input device in combination with the Automatic Cutter Controller (IHC ACC®) for fully automatic CSD control.
