World Marine Offshore (WMO) has implemented BareFLEET, Reygar’s remote monitoring system, on their crew transfer vessel (CTV) World Mistral.
This installation is the first in WMO’s rollout of BareFLEET, which will soon deliver health and performance monitoring across the firm’s fleet of CTVs.
A lack of interoperability between disparate remote monitoring systems continues to present a significant challenge for vessel operators, Reygar said, adding that it is becoming increasingly clear that this data must be pulled into one place and interfaced smoothly to generate a clear picture of vessel performance and health from which to inform operational and commercial decisions.
As well as BareFLEET’s standard package of advanced engine, navigation and motion monitoring, World Mistral’s version of BareFLEET interfaces with several 3rd party systems already installed to the vessel. This includes the soft bow hydraulic system, fin stabilizer ride control system, active ballast system, and genset, bow thruster, and shore power systems. By consolidating the data from these existing systems, BareFLEET will act as a black box tool that provides a single platform for complete insight into WMO’s CTV vessel performance data.
Chris Huxley-Reynard, Engineering Director of Reygar, said: “As part of WMO’s commitment to finding cost efficient and effective solutions to their client’s operational challenges, they have requested a highly comprehensive system of vessel monitoring. By plugging in BareFLEET, the operations team will be able to optimize the vessel’s performance and schedule maintenance before faults become critical – therefore maintaining a high level of safety and availability for their clients.”
Via the digital DPR, WMO will be able to supply reports to their clients on a daily basis, showing crew onboard, technician pax and equipment transfers, fuel bunkering, weather observations, and safety checks and drills.
“It’s WMO’s ambition to be the most innovative fleet in the industry, and Reygar’s ability to adapt BareFLEET to our specific combination of vessel systems means that we have complete awareness of the health and performance of the vessel,” Jesper Mortensen, Head of Technical at WMO, said.
“Our high-performance CTVs include SWATH, high-speed, and hybrid vessels, and encompass a range of unique designs and onboard systems intended to provide our clients with the right vessel to suit their needs – and the versatility of the BareFLEET platform will ensure that we have the most comprehensive understanding of a fleet of any CTV operator in the industry.”
