Reliable wireless communications onboard, inside ship compartments, would be extremely useful for shipping companies. It can be used for safety purposes, keeping track of where people are and what they are doing, and also for data purposes, making it possible to install new sensors without cabling.
Conventional wireless protocols, like 3G and wifi, can often be unreliable onboard ship because of problems penetrating steel. But there are other possible wireless protocols available.
In this webinar, we'll hear about how offshore operator Rem Offshore works together with technology for Scanreach for communicating data inside the ship.
Rem Offshore is Norwegian platform supply, offshore construction, renewables, and seismic vessels operator. It operates a fleet of eleven vessels that are only seven years old on average. In addition, REM have REM Energy under construction for the wind marked. One of its construction subsea/renewables “Rem Inspector” has signed up to Scanreach safety solutions after a pilot.
With Scanreach wireless solution Rem Offshore emergency team can locate their missing crew members on the ship in real time, thanks to a small tracking sensor similar to a watch that crew members wear on a wrist. It helps them to react faster and send assistance in case of an accident.
ScanReach is a Maritime IoT company based in Bergen, Norway that developed a unique sensor mesh technology enabling wireless data transfer and connectivity in confined steel environments. This technology removes a major barrier for digitization onboard vessels and rigs, enabling real time wireless transfer of data and new levels of safety.
