Published by
Oilfield Technology,

Amarcon has announced that the company will deliver OCTOPUS-Onboard vessel advisory solutions to a total of three vessels owned by Norwegian oil service company OHT AS and Korean heavy cargo transporter DongBang. The information and control system will support the vessels' route planning, optimisation of speed and insight in critical motions.

The repeat order with OHT encompasses OCTOPUS motion monitoring and forecasting for vessel M/V Albatross.

Under the contract with DongBang, Amarcon will deliver OCTOPUS-onboard systems and motion monitor systems (TMS-3) to two heavy freight cargo vessels, the DongBang Giant No 2 and Giant No 3. The motion monitor system is based on three accelerometers that continuously provide the crew with information for decision-making support.

Both OHT and DongBang will have access to OCTOPUS-Online, which is an online reporting service. By using this tool, the vessel owner can download and display all measured motions and accelerations that are collected from the vessel.
