Monitoring & Control on board ships
In times of IoT and cloud solutions, ship equipment providers come up with intelligent systems that can monitor the performance of critical plants on board.
While this might seem like an unnecessary investment at first, monitoring and control units can save costs in the long term by ensuring that the systems perform as they should and alerts if things are going wrong. This minimises downtime and costly repairs while giving personell the chance to purchase consumables and spares well in time and thus optimise the supply chain.
Furthermore some monitoring and control units, such as those from RWO, offer critical data storage that functions as log books that are required by the US Coast Guards for example.
Benefits of modern monitoring and control units
- Minimising downtime
- Optimising the supply chain
- Providing evidence of compliant system management
