Monday, July 08, 2013

Strainstall Marine U.K. announced the award of a contract for the supply of an Integrated Marine Monitoring System (IMMS), from Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) of Korea. The IMMS is for the Moho Nord Tension Leg Platform (TLP), of which HHI is the constructor and Total Oil the principal operator. The Moho Nord platform is to be located offshore Congo, West Africa.

The multi-million dollar project is one of the largest contracts of this type awarded to Strainstall Marine, and is an example of the ever-developing integration capabilities of the company.

The project has a wide brief with many integrated systems providing critical monitoring data to the platform operating team.

The Integrated Marine Management System is based around a centralized architecture, utilizing field-proven software, processors and Input/output systems. The IMMS brings together the operation of a number of hull-based monitoring and control systems, including tendon tension monitoring, load cells, riser monitoring, draft gauging, load management software, winch monitoring, corrosion monitoring and a Metocean system to monitor a range of sea and air conditions. There will be provision for several-hundred lines of input/output running directly into the system.

The system has built-in redundancy at many levels, from power supplies and networking, to redundant servers and HMI provision. The HMI interfaces present clear displays to the operator, enabling straight-forward monitoring and control of all relevant input/output and related systems. Three HMI positions are catered for, including one 'roaming' laptop computer user interface. This can be connected hard-wired into the system network, or alternatively can be used remotely via a wireless link, permitting off-platform monitoring and system operation, should requirements demand this.

The project is due for delivery in March 2014 and enables platform management teams to make informed judgments based on the provision of complex data from a diverse range of sensors and systems.
