Jack-Up Barge Remote Support Contract for Imtech

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

Imtech Marine has been awarded a second Advanced Support Agreement from Jack-Up Barge for 24/7 remote monitoring and maintenance of the systems installed by Imtech Marine on board the newbuild, self-elevating platform JB-118. This follows an earlier and similar contract for the JB-117, where Imtech Marine completed equipment installation in 2012 and subsequently started remote monitoring. The JB-118 was built near Hong Kong in Shenzhen. Imtech Marine presents a live & operational remote control room at the Europort exhibition, hall 1, stand 1124.

The remote support is extensive and comprises the VSAT network, the ICT network, PABX central telephone system and the total navigation, communication and entertainment package, including IPTV and satellite television. Additionally, VHF/UHF communications for the crane operators, a meteo and CCTV system, as well as a communications system for the helideck. Because the barges are often working offshore for many weeks at a time it is vital that any problems can be sorted out remotely. This agreement also includes ICT system management. For instance when there are crew changes and a new crew is boarding all necessary ICT actions are set up and prepared such as email accounts, file server changes, login passwords etc. Imtech Marine makes these changes remotely for Jack-Up Barge.

Frank Berends, Global Manager Remote Services, said, “Our aim is to eliminate all surprises with remote support, and thus reducing maintenance costs by remote monitoring. Imtech’s GTAC (Global Technical Assistance Center) provides all the resources for that, including three 24/7 Remote Control Rooms in Rotterdam, Houston and Singapore.”
