UK-based Reygar has been commissioned to develop what is claimed to be an industry-first motion comfort monitoring tool capability in BareFLEET, the company’s remote monitoring and reporting platform
The new tool will track and analyse motion, fuel consumption and seasickness in different locations on board vessels, with a specific focus on boosting safety and fitness to work aboard vessels supporting work at projects on behalf of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.
The BareFLEET system that Siemens Gamesa has commissioned will automatically monitor the health and performance of equipment on each vessel, including engine health, CO2 emissions, fuel consumption, motion, and impact on the turbine.
The system will also allow the crew to manually input supplementary data and observations into a customer-specific digital reporting platform, with the resulting DPR form customised to bring Siemens Gamesa’s own key performance indicators and priority data fields, such as crew comfort, to the fore.
Motion data measured across different cabin locations and different vessels, sourced via BareFLEET while in transit and while idling, will advise Siemens Gamesa’s chartered vessel operators on how to guarantee the crew and technicians are housed and transported in such a way that they can continue do their jobs effectively across multi-day projects.
Siemens Gamesa head of offshore service logistics René Wigmans said, “We are increasingly focused on how digitalization can power the efficient and safe roll-out of our technology across projects.
"Our work with Reygar to further integrate BareFLEET’s detailed motion reporting into our offshore activity will support our team in maximising operational efficiency and reducing vessel emissions whilst securing the health and comfort of our crew as they work on these flagship – yet often remote - sites.”
