Our Vessel Management System is designed to monitor and control
various systems and processes throughout the vessel. Systems such
as Ballast, Bulk Transfer, Bilge, Fuel Transfer, Fresh Water, Oily Water
Separators, Machinery Alarm Systems and Intact & Stability Software can
all be integrated into a single Control System.
Reliability is ensured through the use of fully redundant processing hardware
and software along with field proven sensors and equipment. Control Stations
can be placed in various relevant locations throughout the vessel. HMI’s can
be integrated to give individual system control or indication at local stations.
Multiple control stations can be setup with full or limited control functions. Data
can be accessed real-time or stored on hard disk for exporting and external

Control &
Tank Gauging
Monitor Systems has a proven track record in the design, project
management, installation and commissioning of Ballast Control Systems
for semi-submersibles and Pre-Load Tank Gauging for Jack- Up’s
throughout the world. Our Ballast Control System incorporates Tank
Gauging giving an accurate measurement of ballast tank levels. Control
of Ballast Pumps, Ballast Valves & Actuators give the operator complete
control of the entire Ballast System. Flow rates and discharge pressures
can be monitored to enhance operations. Automated fill and discharge
routines can be added to allow the operator to fill or discharge a set
volume at the touch of a button.
Our Tank Gauging System provides a reliable and simple method for monitoring
and recording the volume of water in Ballast, Diesel Oil, Brine Base Oil, Mud,
Drain, Potable Water and Drill Water Tanks. The continuous measurement
of tank levels negates the need for labour intensive manual soundings.
Tank Volumes and Weights are derived from the Tank Levels and displayed
graphically on HMI screens.
10 - 11
& Control
Bilge Monitoring System offers a simple and effective remote
monitoring of bilge water. HMI’s located in manned areas clearly display
the status of all bilge tanks as well as generating audible alarms to warn
of an influx of water.
Bilge Control can be easily integrated into the Bilge Monitoring System to
control bilge pumps and valves to safely transfer excess water overboard.
Full system redundancy is provided. Bilge sensors offer both continuous fault
monitoring and a remote test facility to produce an extremely effective detection
system, negating the need to enter remote inaccessible areas for maintenance
and testing.
Bilge Control Systems can easily interface to existing bilge valves or new
actuated valves can be supplied.

Rack Phase
Monitoring of Rack Phase Difference during jacking operations can give
an early indication of possible leg overstresses. Taking continual manual
Rack Phase Measurements during jacking operations is both difficult and
open to error. The Rack Phase Differential Monitoring System provides an
accurate electronic / mechanical system for measuring and recording the
Rack Phase Difference of each leg.
Monitor Systems M1000 Rack Phase Differential Monitoring System provides
automated real time monitoring of leg deployments greatly reducing deployment
times by replacing the need for regular manual measurements. The R.P.D.
Monitoring System detects R.P.D. errors and directs corrective measures
necessary to arrest errors. The R.P.D. Monitoring System also tracks and
reports leg position information providing such parameters as Reserve Leg,
Leg Below Hull, Distance to Tag Bottom and Leg Penetration.

Bulk Tank
Control &
Our Bulk Tank Monitoring System measures the amount of Bulk Material
(Barite, Bentonite, Cement, etc.) for Drilling Fluid and Cement Mixing
Operations. Various sensors can be utilised to best match the particular
Tank. Guided Wave Radar is the most common method of measurement
although Hydraulic Load Cells, Strain Gauge Load Cells, Capacitive
Sensors, etc. can be utilised if required.
Bulk Tank Control can be integrated into Bulk Tank Monitoring Systems to
control the various process Valves. Surge Tank Weights can be derived from
existing Hydraulic Load Cells. Bulk Transfer rates can be controlled through the
use of proportional throttle valves.

Blow Out
Monitor Systems BOP Control System provides clients with a reliable
bespoke interface to well control, either via our unique slim-line push
button panel design through to fully redundant PLC control for operating
in hazardous areas.
Hazardous area Drillers Control Panels and Diverter Panels are supplied with
push button control and LED indication of all stack functions. System Pressures
are displayed on Intrinsically Safe Gauges. Flow rates and alarms are also

Tight Door
& Control
Management of Water / Weather tight Doors and Hatches is critical to
maintain vessel integrity and stability. The System provides continuous
monitoring and recording of all doors and hatches.
Screens show the status and location of each door & hatch, making it very
simple for the operator to quickly establish which are open or closed. Alarms
can be raised if any door remains open after a set time.
The System can be stand-alone or integrated to the Vessel Management
System. Local indication and local audible alarms can also be installed at
individual doors if required.
22 - 23
Brace &
Void Leak
Our Brace & Void Leak Detection System offers a continuous automatic
monitoring of a vessel’s watertight integrity.
High level redundancy along with SIL approved sensors combine to ensure a
highly effective and reliable system. Leak Detection Sensors can be easily retro
fitted into Braces, Bilge Pots or Void Spaces to monitor for complete vessel
watertight integrity.
Leak detection sensors provide both continuous fault monitoring and a remote
test facility to produce an extremely effective detection system, eliminating the
need to enter remote inaccessible void spaces for maintenance and testing.
Monitor Systems Brace & Void Leak Detection System can be easily integrated
with our Bilge Control System to offer increased functionality.

Our Anchor Winch Monitoring Systems can be utilised to monitor most
winch types. The Systems are primarily used to monitor anchor chain
Tension, Length and Speed, although control of brakes and emergency
release functions can be added if required.
Local HMI stations at each winch house allows the operator to view data from
any winch increasing safety awareness. All winch data can also be passed to a
centralised HMI in the control room with dedicated alarms to alert users. Data
is logged and can be exported for external analysis.
The Anchor Winch Monitoring System can interface with existing or new sensors
such as Load Cells, Load Pins, Encoders or Proximity Sensors. We can also
provide a full calibration service for our Anchor Winch Monitoring Systems.

rig equipment and machinery.
Management data is transmitted to touch screen HMI panels in Control Rooms,
Engine Rooms, Workshops etc. as required. All alarms and key parameters are
recorded and can be exported for external analysis. Software routines ensure
all relevant alarms are raised in any particular location.
