Hyde Marine, a US-based ballast water treatment system (BWTS) manufacturer, has released the Hyde GUARDIAN Data Log Analysis Utility, said to be the ballast water industry’s first and most comprehensive data-driven analytics platform
The Hyde GUARDIAN Data Log Analysis Utility (DLAU) is a cloud-based IoT solution empowering Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS health monitoring, standardised performance reporting, and options for enhanced, fleetwide environmental compliance management.
Hyde Marine executive director Chris Todd said, “With DLAU, Hyde Marine has again raised the bar with the value vessel operators should expect from BWTS equipment suppliers. From integrated remote access technology, to indicative compliance testing, to BWTS operational simulation, to automated data analytics and performance reporting – these technical solutions provide vessels with the resources they need to achieve peak performance with respect to ballast water regulations.”
Hyde Marine technical solutions manager Vince Page said, “A key feature of our new DLAU is that it empowers equipment operators to easily track the performance of their BWTS and, when necessary, to proactively identify maintenance tasks before problems arise. With each submission of data, a performance report comprising 30 days of BWTS operational history is automatically supplied to the vessel via email.”
According to Mr Page, the analysis performed by DLAU is also forwarded to Hyde Marine’s technical support team for review and consideration. If recommendations for corrective action or improved performance tunings are identified, these are proactively communicated to the vessel and can be immediately applied to the BWTS via remote access technology.
“In this way, the pairing of Hyde Marine’s remote access technology with DLAU establishes a complete and closed-loop support system aimed at keeping the BWTS operating at peak performance,” added Mr Page.
With both IMO and USCG type-approvals, the Hyde GUARDIAN-US BWTS harnesses the scientifically proven process of dose methodology to ensure the proper amount of ultraviolet light is transmitted to treat ballast water, even in the most challenging waters around the world.
The interlocking suite of services supporting the Hyde GUARDIAN-US BWTS include:
“This is the future, available now, for ensuring optimal performance of your ballast water treatment system at virtually any port in the world,“ said Mr Todd. “With the Hyde GUARDIAN–US BWTS, Hyde Marine’s more than 100 years of maritime technology leadership and performance is always on board.”
