The extraordinarily low cost of energy reflects the technological and commercial achievements of the offshore energy industry. Now, owners, operators, OEMs and contractors must continue to strive for every efficiency - without compromising safety.
Vissim has delivered anti-collision systems and offshore logistics solutions to the oil & gas and offshore windfarms for more than two decades. More than 80 offshore oil & gas assets and more than 15 offshore windfarms has been equipped with Vissim's reliable solutions.
From the first offshore installation in 1997, Vissim has developed to be an expert on remote and centralized operations. Multiple and complex IT networks cross operators and advanced data sharing and management, have become our every day work. the Vissim technology and know how have saved our clients millions of dollars by reduction in hardware, offshore personnel and number of stand by vessels.
A key word through out the Vissim system is integration. The Vissim Vessel Traffic Management- and Vissim Radio Communication Application form the foundation of Our Offshore Energy Solutions. The applications are seamlessly integrated in order to provide the operator with the most efficient operating picture. Integration doesn't stop there. Modules such as CCTV, Oil spill detection and wave height detection can be added on the application which makes it the most complete surveillance solution in the market today. We take integration concept even further by successfully using data from other suppliers into our large scale system, giving customer true multi-vendor environment and managing the quality of the overall integrated solution.
For offshore windfarms and oil rigs, where people are transferred between assets by Crew Transfer Vessels and Helicopters, Vissim has developed the Offshore Energy Manager. The application supports safe and efficient personnel management by crew transfer planning, certificate management, inductions and real time tracking of personnel working on a windfarm or in an oil & gas field. This application enables much of the traditional workload of marine coordination to be easily distributed to contractors, thereby increasing transparency and minimizing duplication while maintaining data control and security.
Vissim is a turnkey provider of complete offshore surveillance solutions. The sensor network necessary to provide real-time communication and site data can include radar, AIS, CCTV and drone, people tracking, VHF, TETRA and Metocean sensors. Our engineering department delivers engineering services and documentation compliant to the highest standards in the industry. Having our own engineering department has also enabled us to develop radars for use in EX zone 1. The module is called the Vissim Radar Dome and has been installed on a number of offshore assets world wide.
And, of course, when a project is successfully delivered, we don't forget and move on. We have a competent 24/7 support center and we offer a wide range of training courses for operators and maintenance personnel, all to secure a problem free operation for our clients.
