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.

Royal Dirkzwager and Vissim are again partnering to provide Remote Offshore Asset Monitoring (ROAM) services to Holland’s largest privately owned energy company: ONE-Dyas B.V. Vissim’s integrated vessel tracking and voice communication systems will enable the centralised remote monitoring of ONE-Dyas’ offshore platforms in both the UK and Dutch sector of the North Sea. Royal Dirkzwager’s Control Room Operators will perform 24/7 monitoring from their Maritime Control Room in Maassluis, The Netherlands. ROAM is a cost effective and proven service designed to monitor the maritime traffic around a wide range of offshore assets such as Oil & Gas platforms and wind farms in order to minimize environmental and operational risks.

 

Paul Wieland, Director at Royal Dirkzwager, explains ‘we are thrilled to see ONE-Dyas partner with us for their safety and surveillance needs. ROAM was developed over the last six years and has a growing reputation as the partner of-choice for remote asset monitoring. One-Dyas is particularly exciting for us as it requires us to provide services to both their UK and Dutch operations. Vissim’s system is designed to scale as needed and can easily handle multiple surveillance areas. We look forward to further developing our partnership with Vissim and welcoming our new customer ONE-Dyas to the ROAM service.

 

Per Arne Henæs, Vissim’s CEO, added that Vissim is also pleased to support another customer with long-term partner Royal Dirkzwager ‘The joint service is an attractive proposition for offshore operators, particularly in the North Sea. Increases in marine traffic can cause regular collision potential with these platforms leading to costly production shutdowns or environmental accidents. Digitizing offshore operations with ROAM is helping operators like ONE-Dyas reduce their overall costs and emissions while not compromising safety. We believe there are a growing number of operators around the UK and Holland who could benefit from this service.’
