BMO Offshore Presents CTV Engine Monitoring

BMO Offshore has introduced engine monitoring for Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs), which brings vessel motion, behavior and fuel figures together.

Additionally, the data can be used for fleet management and maintenance planning, the company said.

CTV motion monitoring systems enable recording of information on sea state and motion of the vessel to monitor seasickness, vessel impacts on turbines and performance of vessel whilst on the turbine. This enables high level quality control and direct feedback to the vessel crew, according to BMO.

Increased detailed monitoring of the engine performance has now also become a major factor in the effort to increase safety and comfort while also leading to a reduction in operational costs, the company pointed out. This practice has long been common onshore with fleet operators of buses and trucks onshore using hardware that is compatible and easily fitted to truck engines that are very similar to the Scania, MAN, Volvo and MTU offshore CTV power units.

Since CTVs mostly have comparable engines, BMO uses hardware from the trucking industry. The results and solutions are not only related to reducing fuel costs and reducing maintenance, but also increasing safety and awareness as well as event data recording, the company explained.
