Amarcon, a member of the ABB group, announced that it has received an order for two Octopus-Onboard motion monitoring systems for Heavy freight cargo vessels KOREX SPB no.1 & 2 from CJ Korea Express.

CJ Korea Express is a result of the merger between Korea Express and CJ GLS. With a head-office in Seoul, the company is providing differentiated logistic services across the globe. The company is South-Korea’s largest total cargo delivery company, providing services as contract logistics, forwarding, stevedoring and international express.

Amarcon’s Motion Monitor system (TMS-3) based on three accelerometers, will be installed on the two Heavy freight cargo vessels. This way multiple critical locations of the vessel, for instance the cargo, can be measured and displayed on the bridge of the vessel. By using Octopus-Online, the vessel owner can download and display all measured motions and accelerations that are collected from the vessel. Authorized users have access to this secured web-portal.

The integration of Google Maps provides an accurate viewing of routes and ship positions. The data is downloadable for further evaluation in the office. Heavy freight cargo shipping companies often provide separate log-ins to the cargo-owner so they can be up to date on the actual status and location of their cargo.

General manager Leon Adegeest from Amarcon says: “It is good to see that Octupus has become such an established name within the Heavy lift cargo shipping sector. In total we have had thirteen orders for  vessels that are involved in the heavy lift cargo transportation within the last two months.”

The Octupus product line is part of ABB's Vessel Information and Control (VICO) systems suite which incorporates a full range of automation and advisory solutions specifically for marine applications, based on ABB’s field-proven process automation technologies.  Amarcon, a fully owned subsidiary of ABB, provides monitoring and forecasting software solutions for performance and availability optimization of sea-going vessels, and is the leader in vessel motion prediction solutions. ABB acquired Amarcon in august 2012 as an important step to expand its marine software offering. Today, ABB offers a wide range of marine advisory and optimization systems to the maritime and offshore market.
