A solution for your specific needs
The Offshore solutions constitute a proactive and automated preventive approach to minimizing the probability of threats and damages to offshore and subsea assets such as:
Offshore and subsea structures are generally extremely sensitive to downtime both in terms of direct and associated costs. They are also often a part of critical infrastructure – inflicting more than just economical damage when out of commission. As an example, subsea telecommunication cables constitute a backbone of the global communications network, and subsea power transmission cables play a key role in current and planned transnational infrastructures which gradually will integrate EU power markets and supplies.
Despite regulation of traffic and activities in protection zones around cable infrastructures and clear markings on navigational charts, damages caused by vessels occur – e.g. inflicted by bottom trawling or anchors which pose substantial threats to the integrity and expected or residual lifetime of the cables. The economical and societal consequences can be significant.
Maritime Offshore constitutes a proactive and automated solution which effectively reduces the risk of damages to the offshore and subsea structures. It increases awareness in and around the designated surveillance zones, and it provides the intelligence required to optimize preventive measures at sea level and focus inspection and maintenance efforts at the seabed where most relevant.
The solution is based on our widely used and field proven AIS software – implemented by coast guards and maritime administrations worldwide. The solution includes a web-based display for operators and an event notification server hosted by GateHouse Maritime.
