Ørsted, developer and builder of offshore wind farms, has selected Reygar’s BareFLEET remote monitoring and reporting platform to track and analyse the performance of its chartered fleet of Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs) operating across wind farms in Europe. Reygar provides advanced vessel performance monitoring systems to the offshore renewable energy sector.
Ørsted has 9.9 GW offshore wind capacity installed and under construction. By adopting the vessel-agnostic, cloud-based BareFLEET system, the wind farm developer and operator can be confident that it is getting the best possible service from the vessels it charters.
Ørsted has commissioned Reygar’s BareFLEET system to log vessel motion, fuel consumption, and PAX movements. The system will provide an accurate record of events – including transit, push on, transfer, and crane lifts – so that all operational activity may be assessed for improvement or enhancement.
The system will collate data from existing onboard sensors across the firm’s varied fleet, supplementing this with motion sensor measurements, observations added manually by the Captain and video of transfers. The complete picture of vessel performance and safety that this provides will be accessed through Reygar’s cloud-based portal and daily reporting systems, as well as offering access to raw data for independent analysis by Ørsted’s team.
Chris Huxley-Reynard, managing director, Reygar, said: “By monitoring and acting on data-based insights into motion, fuel consumption, and skipper logged activity, Ørsted will be able to maximise “time on turbine”– whether this is part of the course of operations and maintenance or during construction phases. We are extremely proud to be supporting the firm in realising its offshore ambitions.”
