Following a trial of the UK Electronic Solutions’ Oceanic Dynamics system, Dalby Offshore has decided to install the motion and impact monitoring system on three more crew transfer vessels (CTVs).
The system was trialed on board Dalby’s largest CTV, the Dalby Ouse.
According to UK Electronic Solutions, with its motion, impact, docking and telemetry auditing, the Oceanic Dynamics has allowed Dalby Offshore to justify deployment of this large vessel alongside highly impact-sensitive wind farm equipment. The ability to carry a wider range of equipment and cargo means that the vessel can be used more flexibly and rapidly in more occasions, the company said.
Steve Bartram, Operations Manager at Dalby Offshore, said: “Rollout of this system to our other Crew Transfer Vessels is a no-brainer for us. Oceanic Dynamics has not only allowed us to use our largest CTV alongside sensitive equipment, but with its ability to provide a comprehensive audit trail, it has been instrumental in opening up new business opportunities for us.”
Oceanic Dynamics is set to allow vessel owners to monitor and report on impact, fuel efficiency, engine data, route information, and the dynamic stability of the vessel within the water. It also allows monitoring and recording of crew transfers at all times via an HD CCTV system.
The system can also be installed on smaller vessels, including tugs, pilot vessels and lifeboats, in order to provide an audit trail for incidents, maintenance and performance. All information is stored locally, and can be tranferred via GSM or Wi-Fi when the vessel is within range of the shore, or transferred live via a satellite connection.
