Dynamic Positioning in Ship-to-Ship Transfer Operations Ship-to-Ship Operation Navigation and Piloting Ship-to-ship transfer operations can be Challenge: A brainstorming session with a Solution: Using Trelleborg’s SafePilot CAT challenging, whether they are performed major STS operator highlighted the challenge MAX onboard and offshore positioning unit, offshore or nearshore. Assuring timely and safe of measuring manifold alignment in real-time our SafePilot Offshore solution can accurately operations requires precision alignment of both for safe maneuvers. Offloading and receiving position a ship on the first attempt. Built-in ships’ manifolds in a single attempt, without ships do not have the same equipment, and UHF two-way telemetry connects the systems using tugs to pull off and realign. the equipment does not communicate digitally on the two ships, providing the operations on with each other. Positioning the two vessels both with a birds-eye view of the operation. The ships’ built-in positioning systems are for dynamically during the operation requires open water long-haul navigation and cannot that both vessels have well-coordinated Now in use all over the world, the solution’s provide the adequate overview and precision situational awareness. iPad display shows the distance to go for needed to accurately perform STS maneuvers. manifold alignment, closing distances, and However, as offshore LNG fueling becomes more the speed for the two vessels. And, with prevalent, safe STS maneuverability is key. the display updating every second, STS operators can achieve real-time precision To overcome STS operators’ to within 1cm accuracy. significant challenges in safely aligning connections between two vessels, Trelleborg introduced Scan the QR code using your mobile the CAT MAX unit to its SafePilot device’s camera to watch our Offshore Video. Offshore solution.
