Damen Shipyards Group has teamed up with MO4, provider of high quality solutions on motion prediction in wind and offshore applications, to take a step towards the digitalisation of offshore wind farm operations.
This strategic alliance pairs Damen’s Triton monitoring platform with MO4 motion forecasting knowledge, offering data analytic based services.
Vessel operation will become more effective and safety levels will increase at the same time.
Offshore wind farm operators frequently require crew transfer vessel operators to demonstrate and secure their ability to provide safe transfers. Reports are required which include data on such things as impact-force measurement on vessel landing, push force recovery during transfer and vertical slip measurements.
Relevant wave and weather information are added to give a clear impression of the performance of both vessel and crew in daily operation. Furthermore forecasting services for vessels’ motions are increasingly relevant to realise safe and efficient crew transfers.
MO4 and Damen saw the opportunity to integrate the motion forecasting service with the Triton platform resulting in a single, secured, vessel connection supporting premier league motion based applications.
