nCentric supplies wireless solutions for Van Oord's vessels on Borkum Riffgrund 2
Recently several of the Van Oord’s vessels have been equipped with the nCentric Nova nodes providing wireless vessel to vessel communication. With these units, high bandwidth , high speed traffic has been realized for the exchange of their critical offshore communication during the installation faze at BRG2.
In general , the nCentric technology is used to monitor offshore operations, increase communication and can relay high definition footage from for example Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) in real-time. In combination with the hyperbox, a multitude of bidirectional serial data as well as analogue or digital video feeds can be transmitted and received.
The system can be configured remotely and can be monitored from an onshore location, reducing the number of people required offshore and limiting downtime.
As companies venture into increasingly remote and isolated locations, communication lifelines are vital to manage fleet and vessel operations as well as maintain crew safety.
The need to implement secure, fast and reliable communications systems to monitor activity and track production is a vital part of any offshore operation. nCentric’s Mesh networking solutions have been built to withstand challenging conditions encountered in oil and gas, military and windf farms, with minimal maintenance required.
