SeaRoc Group has successfully provided a unique communications and logistic data solution for DONG Energy Wind Power, with its first deployment on the UK based Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm.
The solution utilises SeaRoc Group’s leading marine management software system, SeaPlanner™ and consists of containerised equipment for reliable communications and logistical data sharing for far offshore projects.
On 10 July 2016 the solution became fully operational with communications and status updates being received in one of DONG´s operations & logistics centres over a satellite link. This data is integrated into SeaPlanner™, providing real-time visibility of site activity, vessel and helicopter tracking as well as various people tracking features.
The container also contains several autonomous safety systems including fire suppression, gas detection and temperature control, all of which are monitored using the SeaPlanner™ software.
The solution for Race Bank OWF utilises the latest enhancements of the SeaPlanner™ software, that aims to to centralise, standardise, automate and make equipment easily deployable and support far offshore projects in order to reduce costs and ensure safety from day one for the people working offshore.
Neil Pittam, SeaRoc Group Project Manager commented:
“This has been a fantastic project for us to work on and we are proud to have delivered a product that is applicable to any type of offshore construction, and is unique to the offshore renewable industry. This system provides a highly-reliable and robust communications system for mission critical activities, maintaining the highest levels of safety, management and efficiency for offshore construction and maintenance operations.”
