Page Europa contracts BMT Scientific Marine Services to provide an Integrated Marine Monitoring System (IMMS) for Floating Production Storage & Offloading vessel.
The equipment order is for the new Quad 204 FPSO that will replace BP’s Schiehallion FPSO operating west of the Shetland Islands, off the coast of Scotland.
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.
