ParkerPMS™ / ParkerRPMS™
The Parker Position Monitoring System is a standalone vessel position surveillance system including an option for crude-oil flow-meter monitoring.ParkerPMS™ logs all data, which can be post-processed and used for investigation purposes.
With the flow-meter monitoring enabled, unexpected drops in the flow rate immediately triggers alarms which also can be seen on the ParkerRPMS™ on installations like FPSO’s. The ParkerRPMS™ receives all information via a radio link from the ParkerPMS™ on the shuttle tanker; enabling both seeing the same information simultaneously.
Gyro Calibration / Verification
Parker Maritime’s GPS / Glonass-based heading and pitch system enables continuous vessel heading device monitoring. This method is an uncomplicated method of checking the heading devices while the vessel is alongside.
The results are presented as figures and graphs. The personnel onboard can immediately verify the results and enter the obtained C-O values into the vessel system.
Parker has also developed a GPS attitude verification system, AttConPRH, in collaboration with the Hydrographic Service of the Norwegian Mapping Authority (NHS). It is designed for performing dynamic vessel attitude sensor verification like Pitch, Roll and Heading. This system enables a complete verification of the vessel attitude sensors during realistic movements of the vessel. A report is issued on site post survey.
SICAMS® – Single Camera Metrology System.
SICAMS is developed for the offshore industry for surveying on structures and spools subsea.
It can be used for surveying of vessel hulls and damages without docking the vessel. Accuracy better than 1 to 5000 is guaranteed.
SICAMS® is provided as a Diver or ROV system.
