Pan Ocean orders OCTOPUS-Onboard for two heavy lift vessels

Amarcon announced today that Pan Ocean has ordered its ship monitoring system OCTOPUS-Onboard for two semi-submersible heavy lift vessels.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, the ABB subsidiary is a specialist in vessel motion prediction. Korean-based shipping company Pan Ocean has ordered a system that will support route planning, optimisation of speed, heading and fuel consumption, but also motion monitoring and forecasting.

Amarcon says that the system will increase workability and safety during heavy lift transportation projects. A motion monitor system (TMS-3) based on three accelerometers will also be installed on the two heavy freight cargo vessels, the Sun Rise and the Sun Shine. Amarcon says that it allows for multiple critical locations of the vessel, for instance the cargo, to be measured and displayed on the bridge of the vessel.

By using OCTOPUS-Online, the vessel owner can download and display measured motions and accelerations that are collected from the vessel. Authorised users have access to this web portal. The data is downloadable for further evaluation in the office. Amarcon says that heavy freight cargo shipping companies also often provide separate log-ins to the cargo owner so they can follow the status and location of their cargo.

The company also notes that, with this latest order from Pan Ocean, it has equipped more than 80 per cent of semi-submersible heavy lift vessels sailing across the globe with its OCTOPUS suite of products.

“Semi-submersible heavy lift vessels operate in highly demanding conditions where ship monitoring and advisory data is key to safe and efficient operations,” said Leon Adegeest, general manager at Amarcon.

“We designed the OCTOPUS-Onboard system to meet the requirements of these special vessels.”

    Klaveness Ship Management has expanded its contract with DNV GL after a successful pilot of the DNV GL Veracity platform.

    The contract expansion will see another eight Klaveness vessels use Veracity. According to the companies, the pilot project, which began in 2019, indicated that a reduction in fuel consumption was possible by combining and visualising operational, positioning and engine data.

  • ABB and DNV GL make history with first vessel cybersecurity verification

    In a milestone for the marine industry, ABB’s solutions onboard a large passenger ship have been awarded cybersecurity verification from classification society DNV GL. 

    As a result, this vessel became the industry’s first to achieve system compliance under DNV GL’s framework for integrated cybersecurity.

    The state-of-the-art cybersecurity resilience for the vessel was enabled by close collaboration of ABB, the shipowner and DNV GL during the construction phase at a shipyard in Europe. Cybersecurity management processes will continue during the ship’s operations, with the system’s resilience maintained throughout the lifetime of the vessel.

    “It is vital that the maritime industry focuses on cybersecurity as an essential part of both design and operation,” said Johann Melsted, area manager Benelux & France for DNV GL. “Which is why we are so pleased to be working with forward looking partners, who are prepared to engage with this emerging risk and demonstrate their commitment to tackling cyber threats.”

    In order to achieve sustainable shipping, vessels are increasingly fitted with integrated automation systems and digital solutions. As part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the vessel’s systems are more connected than ever before, presenting threat vectors previously unheard of in shipping. This is driving the need for closer and earlier collaboration on cybersecurity between all key stakeholders in the newbuilding process. DNV GL’s Integrated Cyber Security Dependent Systems verification establishes a framework to address cybersecurity levels for the main functions of a vessel – both during construction and in operation.

    While the framework is applicable to any vessel, greater sophistication and deeper integration of operational technology systems in complex vessels such as cruise ships mean that appropriate cybersecurity management is paramount. While digitalisation offers opportunities to measure and manage efficiencies across the entire fleet, securing these data streams is critical to the safety of the vessels’ passengers and crew.

    “ABB recognises the importance of cybersecurity in the marine industry and is working closely with shipowners, yards and classification societies to enhance cyber resilience of ships,” said Juha Koskela, managing director, ABB Marine & Ports. “As vessels become more electric, digital and connected than ever before, it is of vital importance that we equip and empower seafarers with reliable solutions that are cyber secure.”

    The vessel is powered by ABB Azipod electric propulsion system.
