Marine Automation System

The main goals of
Intergated Automation System
and ship automation:

Not too long ago, the main goal of introducing automation in the fleet was to reduce the size of the machine crew, and the economic feasibility of using automation was determined by the possibility of its recoupment as a result of cost savings while reducing the number of crews. Currently, this trend is no longer the main one. Now in the foreground is the task of increasing the safety of the operation of ships, and the most urgent task is to reduce harmful emissions during operation.

Amendments to MARPOL establish Ship Energy Eficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) requirements for existing ships.

The team of the company “Breezemarine Group Ltd.” has developed a technological solution: IAS (Intergated Automation System), which helps shipowners to solve the problem of SEEMP management by implementing our system.

Reducing the size of the ship’s crew and office workers who support the work of the fleet.

Dramatic reduction in the time for processing information and making decisions.

Enhancing the safety of navigation.

Automatic protection against any malfunction that could lead to an accident.

The ability to make decisions on the optimal operation of ship systems based on analytics and, as a result, significant savings in fuel and energy resources.

The ability to accurately plan replenishment.

Reducing harmful emissions into the atmosphere and the world’s oceans.

Increase in the service life of ship equipment due to an increase in overhaul periods.

Reducing the cost of replacement parts.

Accurate planning of setting ship equipment for repair.

Selection of the most economical mode of vessel movement, distribution of the ballast of the vessel, selection of the optimal roll, trim and speed parameters, depending on external factors (weather, currents, berth occupancy in the port of destination, etc.)

Tracking and comparing the performance of the entire fleet of the company.

Issuing recommendations for improving performance based on historical data.

The basic principles of our Integrated Automation System:

Full control over power distribution, history of technological and electrical parameters, messages and actions of operators. (PMS) contains all the standard features such as load based start/stop, load sharing, sync and load shedding and more. By viewing the history and trends of power consumption, the crew can stop equipment that is not currently needed, but consumes power. Accordingly, diesel generators reduce load, consume less fuel and reduce CO2 emissions.
Remote and automated control of auxiliary systems of the vessel;
Collection and processing of information in real time from sensors, mechanisms, power plants, meters, from local control systems, etc. Display up-to-date information about workflow parameters on operator panels on demand and/or automatically
Light alarm and sound alarm when controlled parameters go beyond the settings; information about emergency deviations, reports at the request of the operator and (or) automatically; implementation of protection and blocking; The system stores records of all alarms and important events (history up to 5 years). Alarms are written to a log file with response time, acknowledgement, and return to normal.
