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.
