Siemens Gamesa commissions motion comfort monitoring tool
Siemens Gamesa has commissioned Reygar to develop an industry-first motion comfort monitoring tool capability within its monitoring and reporting platform BareFLEET.
The new tool will track and analyze motion, fuel consumption and crew sickness in different cabin locations, with a focus on boosting safety and fitness to work aboard vessels supporting critical multi-day work at Siemens Gamesa projects.
According to Reygar, BareFLEET automatically monitors the health and performance of critical equipment across each vessel, inclusive of engine health, CO2 emissions, fuel consumption, motion, and impact onto the turbine.
The system also allows the crew to manually input supplementary data and observations into a customer-specific digital reporting platform, with the resulting DPR form customized to bring Siemens Gamesa’s own key performance indicators and priority data fields to the fore.
“As wind projects move further offshore into areas of higher wind resource, it is paramount that charterers and vessel operators are equipped with the true understanding of vessel motions and personnel comfort they need to keep these projects – and the people constructing and maintaining them – performing at their best,” said Chris Huxley-Reynard, Managing Director at Reygar.
“Motion data measured across different cabin locations and different vessels, sourced via BareFLEET while in transit and while idling, will advise Siemens Gamesa’s chartered vessel operators on how to guarantee the crew and technicians are housed and transported in such a way that they can continue do their jobs effectively across multi-day projects.”
