  • 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.

    „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.“
