Manor Marine Case Study

Monitoring solutions for multi tank fuel systems

Overview

Manor Marine UK Ltd, based in Portland UK, supply a comprehensive range of shipbuilding and repair, marine manufacturing and general engineering services.

Their latest hybrid offshore support vessel, Manor Endurance, was built to follow the success of her sister vessel, the Manor Venture.

Challenges

Various challenges occurred for the design of the vessel, including making sure social distance requirements could be adhered to. They also wanted to ensure it was fitted with the latest technology, a large fuel capacity for less frequent re-fuelling and rapid fuel transfer and polishing system for generators.

With this in mind, a flexible solution was needed to ensure that careful monitoring of the vessel could be accessed flexibly and easily, including the fuel system, navigation lights, and more.

MV Tricia

MV Tricia Case Study

Flexible solutions and outstanding customer support

Overview

Dongara Marine, based in Western Australia, provide specialist boat building, maintenance and other services and advice to the Australian marine sector. They were awarded the $2.6 million Transperth ferry contract to build a new passenger ferry to join the fleet. MV Tricia, named in honour of Perth Zoo’s iconic 62 year old Asian elephant Tricia, joined two other vessels ferrying passengers between Elizabeth Quay and Mends Street Jetty across the Swan River in Perth.

Challenges

The ferry needed to be marginally longer and faster than the other two ferries and be able to travel further distances for Perth Water to expand in the future. An additional key requirement was for the onshore crew to be able to live monitor the ferry’s system and to be able to record all alarms, both active and those that had been dealt with.

Outcomes

Maritime Systems Australia, specialists in providing unique and high quality marine electronics and monitoring systems, supplied a complete suite of NMEA2000 based products by Oceanic Systems to suit the specific requirements of the project.

The Alarm, Control and Monitoring system, Poseidon, was chosen to monior the entire vessel, controlling various onboard systems such as engine and tank monitoring, lighting control, engine room fans, fire dampers and more.

Both Dongara Marine and Maritime Systems Australia were pleased with the flexibility and ease of installation the system provided, and the quality of customer service Oceanic gave in order for the installation to be completed on time.

Spirit Yachts Case Study

Monitoring solutions for multi tank fuel systems

Overview

Spirit Yachts, based in Suffolk, deliver exceptional vessels completely customised to suit the owner’s itinerary and criteria. As world leaders in modern classic yacht design and build, they have a large portfolio of wooden sail and power yachts ranging from day sailors to superyachts.

They have launched their largest modern classic motor yacht, the Spirit P70, which was commissioned by an experienced owner with specific requirements.

Challenges

Many challenges faced Spirit Yachts initially, and one of the owner’s key requirements was that the vessel had to be capable of comfortably cruising 1,000nm at an average of 18 knots across the North Sea without having to refuel.

A solution was needed to ensure that careful monitoring of the fuel system was undertaken automatically and with minimal input from the owner in order to cruise long distances.

Outcomes

Oceanic Systems’ alarm, control and monitoring system, Poseidon, offered the perfect solution to manage the multi tank fuel system to maximise the yachts range. The system includes the automatic selection of fuel tank usage, the ability to transfer and polish fuel automatically and the capability to monitor the engines and transmissions with full data logging for later analysis.

Oceanic fully supported Spirit Yachts ensuring any questions were answered quickly and efficiently, and they were on hand to provide technical support as required.
