Berthing aid system
The berthing aid System aggregates vital approach data with traffic lights and LED panels. With this system the pilots and marine personnel can make the best decisions for a safe berthing process.
The Berthing Aid System consists of:
- A large LED display
- Eye safe lasers
- Audible alarms and handheld devices
- Traffic lights
Before and after the berthing process, the large LED display can be used to show berthing information (approach distance, speed and angles).
After the vessel is moored and in contact with the fenders, the system monitors fender deflection and drift When something is wrong, the system generates alarms.
During the mooring process, the quay and the ship are safe. This safety is ensured by the adjustable alarm settings for boat speed and angle.
Benefits of our Berthing Aid System
- Reduced operational costs such as damage to the quay, fenders or the vessels themselves
- Improved safety control
- Monitoring in real time and creation of a data log including reports, maneuver replays and historical records
- Visualization of data on different devices and platforms
Eye safe lasers
Two high quality, robust eye safe lasers. These lasers are class 1 in an ATEX enclosure ATEX.
Audible alarms and handheld devices
The application iMoor can be run on PCs in the dock control room . Onboard computers, laptops, PDA and pagers can display information with handling data of high quality, tuned for the highest possible accuracy at the fastest possible update rate .
A large LED display
Part of the Berthing Aid System is the LED Display. This large display provides data of berthing services interest to pilots and ship's crew. The LED powered digits are clearly visible beyond 300 meters in all weather conditions, day and night. The viewing angle both horizontally and vertically is 120 degrees.
The LED display shows the following data:
- Approach speed
- Speed alarms
- Berthing angle
The LED digits are maintenance-free and have a very long service life. They can use the large LED display to show mooring and environmental information. An example is data from the weather station and the wave, tide and current sensor, but also drift and fender compression during mooring. Traffic lights are integrated into the large LED display and provide warning alarm.
