ShuttlePilot


by Navicom Dynamics 47

ShuttlePilot offers berthing aid systems for relative positioning in tandem mooring, side-by-side mooring or ship to buoy mooring.

Emergency warning and emergency shutdown features include riser monitor alarms, jack-knife warnings and an emergency shutdown system.

All systems can be fully customised to meet your needs.

Safety:
Sychronised, accurate, real-time, reliable information to make critical decisions
Exceptional in poor visibility conditions
Early warning of excessive closing speeds and/or yawing of FPSO during approach
Optional display on tug can be used to monitor rig alignment
Remote emergency shutdown
Riser monitoring
Remote hawser tension display

Efficiency:
Early indication of developing trends during approach, improving the odds of success on first attempt
Position, heading and movement information allows for efficient reconnection after detachment due to bad weather - reducing risk of risers blocking due to cooling (and cost to unblock risers)
Early indication of misalignment developing during offtake operations allows the attendant tug to take early and effective action - minimising power requirements.
