Marine solution: Highly reliable and available Ship Management System
The objective of lowering operational costs including reduction of crew on more sophisticated ships leads to global control and monitoring on board for optimised servicing of fleets,
Requested reduction of carbon emission requires better management of the energy chain from providers to consumers
Solution in brief:
The highly available solution controls and supervises the main systems of the ship by providing: alarm management, power management, auxiliaries and fluid management as main engine cooling, lubrication circuit, ballast, bilge, compressed air, fuel & oil, fire fighting pumps, fresh water.
Supervision, control and optimisation of the generators (Load Sharing)
Supervision of Main Engines, including exhaustive alarms and diagnostics
Thanks to a secured architecture, full supervision and control of main systems at several locations in the ship, ensures completely reliable ship management by efficient crew
For higher availability and fast response time, the dedicated compact and hardened PLC achieves an efficient and optimised Power Management System (PMS) for generators that allows 20% energy saving.
Redundant SCADA servers and PLCs for 100% availability at first fault.
Supervision is carried out at bridge level by a Scada system based on redundant PC Vue 8.0 and in various cabins by 6 Magelis Touch panels with Vijeo designer human machine interface
A high availability architecture communication network is implemented by 2 servers in hot stand by, supported by an Ethernet ring with redundancy management, and optical fibre (Modbus RS485 with relevant bridge to Modbus TCP/IP when required)
Local acquisition is implemented by 12 remote I/O stb Advantys ie approx 1500 I/O, control part by main PLC Modicon Quantum or Premium in hot standby, and power management by dedicated PLC Modicon Premium or M340.
