Motion monitoring system launched by NSSLGlobal Group company

UK Electronic Solutions, part of the NSSLGlobal Group, has launched a new self-contained motion and impact monitoring system called Oceanic Dynamics, which aims to allow offshore vessels to monitor and report impact on structures, as well as advising on engine performance and reliability.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Oceanic Dynamics uses a Microelectromechanical System (MEMS) based orientation sensor to monitor the motion and impact of a vessel as it docks with an offshore structure, to assist vessel operators in complying with regulations or Service Level Agreements.

While impact monitoring was the starting point and primary function of the system, the company says that it is also able to monitor fuel efficiency, engine data and route information, as well as the vessel’s dynamic stability within the water.

Oceanic Dynamics also employs a HD CCTV bullet camera to record footage from the deck of the vessel at all times.

“We are currently trialling Oceanic Dynamics and have installed the system on our newest crew transfer vessel, Dalby Ouse,” said Steve Bartram, operations manager of Dalby Offshore.

“So far, we are extremely impressed with the results and have already seen real value in our investment, particularly as it helps us comply with the impact force and contractual regulations required by the client. The fact that the product is available on a contractual basis is also cost-effective and convenient.”

Oceanic Dynamics delivers a weekly comprehensive report of how the vessel, crew and environment are impacting on vessel performance. This report can be tailored in-line with specific content required by the vessel operator.

All information is stored locally within the unit until the vessel is within GSM or Wi-Fi range and can then be downloaded to shore. Should there be a requirement for data to be transferred to shore more immediately the unit is also capable of integrating with an onboard satcom system.{/mprestriction}
