Tallink to roll out IoT-based operational awareness system

Estonia-based Tallink Grupp has agreed a deal with Fleetrange of Finland to roll out a real-time IoT-powered operational awareness system across its fleet of ships, to share operational information in between vessels and with shore-based organisations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Fleetrange IoT (Internet of Things) system to be provided to Tallink will offer information on real-time ship motion, ship weather data, as well as a live on-demand video feed from Tallink’s  13 cruise ships, fast ferries and RoRo vessels sailing under the Tallink and Silja Line brands.

“We have been looking for a fleet-wide operational awareness solution for a few years and the solution offered by Fleetrange meets all our key needs, such as ship tracking, combined with real-time motions, video, wind sensor data and accurate weather forecasts as well as other powerful tools for our captains,” said Captain Tarvi-Carlos Tuulik, head of ship management at Tallink.

“We equipped three of our ships – Silja Symphony, Silja Serenade and Star – with Fleetrange sensor units, (and) after a successful two-month trial period we are ready to roll this out to our entire fleet.”

“We believe that Fleetrange will enable us to further increase our very high service quality and safety levels and we look forward to maximising the potential of this mobile-enabled solution in our daily operations.”

Fleetrange notes that it has also now begun official trials of its automatic Bridge Operational Quality Assurance (BOQA) system with Tallink, developed using methodologies adapted from the aviation industry to provide systematic tracking and trending of Operational Quality events, such as heavy weather along the route, heavy motion, crash stops, close encounters with other ships, and ECA/PSSA and restricted area entries.{/mprestriction}
