Page Europa has awarded a contract to BMT Scientific Marine Services Inc (BMT) to provide an Integrated Marine Monitoring System (IMMS) for the new Quad 204 FPSO that will replace BP’s Schiehallion FPSO operating West of the Shetland Islands.
The IMMS will provide real-time data on the local meteorological and oceanographic (MetOcean) environment, FPSO motions, and tanker proximity monitoring. The IMMS also includes a comprehensive structural monitoring system. Monitoring the impact of the MetOcean environment on the motion and structure of FPSOs operating in harsh environments is critical to determine an asset’s integrity and safety.
The system is comprised of a computer console, remote sensor packages, data acquisition software, and client display software for user-friendly operation.
