CONDITION MONITORING MEETING IMPACT-MONITORING


NEEDS OF OFFSHORE WINDFARMS Offshore windfarm structures are well-known for their sensitivity to impact from docking vessels and as a result, there are stringent impact monitoring requirements in place.


Crew transfer vessels (CTVs) are typically required to remain within a 200kN impact force limit when docking, and to operate only within certain environmental conditions — or else they run the risk of voiding their Service Level Agreements.


AUDIT TRAIL It is therefore advantageous for CTV operators to have a meticulous audit trail for their fleets, recording and monitoring impact force as routine. This data is also hugely beneficial to the windfarm operator. By having a clear, highly-visual report documenting the force of a vessel on landing, its orientation and acceleration characteristics and other mitigating factors (e.g. rogue heavy waves), the CTV owner and windfarm operator can easily review the evidence of what happened when incidents occur. The comprehensive and highly visual performance data generated by the system can also support CTV owners’ credentials when pitching for new business.


Until recently gathering this kind of data was in many ways impractical. Strain gauge technology is limited and can’t provide the comprehensive picture that both the CTV and windfarm operators want.


OCEANIC DYNAMICS UK Electronic Solutions responded to this market need with Oceanic Dynamics, a self-contained motion and impact monitoring system suited to offshore vessels. The system is designed to protect the longevity of offshore assets by monitoring vessel impact on structures, passenger


comfort and safety and engine performance and reliability.


Unique in the market, the system is the first to address the complete requirement of operators and construction companies. Oceanic Dynamics uses a highly accurate Microelectromechanical System (MEMS) based orientation sensor to monitor motion and impact of the vessel as it docks, enabling vessel operators to keep in line with regulations. The system can also be linked with CCTV cameras to provide a reliable visual back up for the data.


COMPACT Highly compact, Oceanic Dynamics is WEBSITE BROCHURE VIDEO www.windenergynetwork.co.uk 63


contained inside a single briefcase. This is designed to create minimal physical impact and to enable the system to be moved easily between vessels. For further flexibility vessels are encouraged to hire the system rather than purchase it outright.
