Vissim Today

Vissim’s technologies lie behind some of the world’s largest and most complex vessel traffic management and surveillance systems. Vissim is a highly innovative information technology company and, for more than thirty years, we have provided essential capabilities to our customers to enable them to protect their offshore energy assets and maritime borders against threats at sea and to enhance the efficiency of their offshore and maritime operations.

Vissim delivers turnkey solutions and services for real-time data consolidation and presentation for decsion support. Vissim’s applied science aggregates data from a large number of new or existing sensors, such as radar, AIS, VHF, MET, air quality and CCTV, along with external databases including Lloyds and FairPlay. Information is validated and processed to produce a complete maritime picture via an advanced traffic display and other communication tools, adapted to local circumstances.

A further benefit of Vissim’s solutions is that they are designed to fit existing sensor infrastructures, thus offering significant financial and practical advantages to our customers. Vissim is independent of any hardware and sensor supplier, and this unique attribute allows Vissim to provide our customers with candid and objective points of view.

We are an industrial member of IALA, participating on the VTS and eNav committees.

Due to its minimal weight and volume, Vissim’s ATEX radar and ATEX VSAT products was chosen for Equinor’s Njord field in the North Sea. The system integration project successfully passed FAT conducted at Vissim’s premises in Slovakia.

Vissim’s ATEX solutions uses standard components for radar and VSAT which are installed in a pressurized domes, thus providing an explosion safe environment around the equipment. The VSAT dome was Vissim’s first VSAT delivery and compliments Vissim’s existing range of dome products for solid state and magnetron radars of various antenna sizes.

Vissim aligns with XCECO operational needs

Vissim, provider of marine coordination and communication systems to 25 offshore windfarms, is continuing its push into the digitalisation of marine operations with the roll-out of Offshore Energy Manager.

Bailey Bradley, Operations Director at Lynn and Inner Dowsing, shared his thoughts.

„We’ve been using Vissim’s reliable and dependable people tracking, communication and surveillance systems at LID for seven years. Offshore Energy Manager (OSEM) takes us forward in a huge, but well managed leap, setting us up well for our ongoing and future operational needs – so much so that we’ve committed to a long, multiyear contract, with the clear intention to continue our excellent relationship, hopefully for the life of the asset.“

The tangible benefits of Offshore Energy Manager are already making themselves apparent. According to Bradley
„With OSEM we have been able to streamline the induction process, monitoring, reporting and planning of some offshore operations – sharing the software platform with our contractors, but retaining the required level of control.”

Nick Dent, Managing Director of Vissim’s Offshore Wind business commented
„XCECO have embraced the collaborative capabilities of OSEM. It’s great to see clients who have helped us to shape new system functionality benefit from their input. We’re determined to continue to innovate, to listen, and to realise the opportunities of digitalisation in the field of offshore energy marine operations.“

Vissim awarded vessel traffic & oil spill detection system contract on Maersk Inspirer

Vissim AS has been awarded a contract to deliver its latest generation Vessel Traffic Management System to Aker Solutions for the Maersk Inspirer rig. The system integration contract includes Vissim’s Oil Spill Detection, using the smart radar concept, and integrated CCTV Module. The light weight ATEX radar dome enables a cost efficient radar solution in EX zone 1.

The integration of radar, voice communications, and vessel tracking sensors provides rig operators a seamless anti-collision, safety, and communication system. Vissim’s Oil Spill Detection module will further supplement operators environmental and situational awareness around the rig. Vissim’s proprietary software will leverage a combination of radar video and thermal camera imagery to allow operators to detect, track, and monitor any potential oil spills or leakage. Thermal cameras can similarly track vessels or targets whose position is provided by other sensor feeds. All of Vissim systems are designed to exceed relevant Norwegian and International standards for offshore oil and gas operations.
