FEATURE SPONSOR INSPECTION, REPAIR & MAINTENANCE


By utilising the iRAMS alerting function and the archived data reports during the investigation, it revealed that the Skipper was consistently travelling at maximum throttle. Remedial education was undertaken with the Skipper and resulted in a reduction of fuel usage for the vessel in question.


IMPROVING VESSEL EFFICIENCY The reporting


functionality of iRAMS has been developed to improve vessel efficiency allowing users to create automated reports that are e-mailed on a daily/weekly/ monthly basis using either user defined parameters or pre-set comparison reports e.g. engine hour v fuel consumption.


Users can also configure a wide range of engine data and location alert parameters in the GUI to trigger early warning alerts for irregularities.


SPATIAL MAPPING DATA Included in the iRAMS GUI is ‘spatial mapping data', offering detailed global windfarm locations. This enables users to set geo fences/alerts around particular windfarms, or even individual wind turbines, notifying when a vessel arrives or departs its destination. AIS data can also be fed into iRAMS and displayed on the GUI mapping, allowing the geo-fencing alerting function to be available to all AIS vessels.


EASE OF INSTALLATION


An iRAMS installation on a vessel typically takes four hours and the small form factor on board system passively monitors the engines without any intrusive electronics or interference required.
