The Balla Balla infrastructure project (BBIP) involves the construction of iron ore transportation infrastructure at the Balla Balla Port, including a 162km railway line connecting the facility to iron ore deposits in the region.
Insatech Marine specialises in fuel consumption systems and monitoring solutions for the maritime industry.
Fuel consumption systems for the marine sector
Insatech’s team of marine experts has established partnerships with some of the world’s leading manufacturers in instrumentation and automation for a global service.
The company optimises operational procedures and eases decision-making by offering field-tested and proven solutions for regulatory compliance to save money.
Fuel consumption systems can reduce usage through real-time data. Users can gain insights into how internal and external influences affect vessels. The data can be used to implement cost-effective optimisation projects.
Vessel monitoring solutions for data analysis
Insatech offers solutions to measure fuel consumption at vessel level, and enables users to send data to their headquarters for further analysis.
The system allows efficiency projects to be rolled out and evaluated on fleet level. It can be expanded and connected to consumers for tracking purposes.
Insatech specialises in performance monitoring for improved operations by assisting in the evaluation and effect of projects or initiatives.
Observing a vessel’s performance can be used to assess its energy efficiency plan and simplifies decision-making processes. Data collection from multiple instruments and consumers provides information concerning vessel performance.
Bunker management for vessels
Insatech’s bunker solutions use stable Coriolis mass flow meters to prevent any attempts to manipulate marine fuel by either heat or air.
The company has ensured accurate bunkering since 2013. The largest reported faulty delivery detected with help from the system was 53.3 metric tonnes (mt) in June 2013.
Oil discharge monitoring equipment
Regulation stipulates that all vessels must carry functional oil discharge monitoring equipment (ODME) aboard.
ODME is designed to allow or prevent the discharge of ballast water, depending on the level of residues, and automatically logs discharge sites.
Insatech provides installation, training, service and maintenance of its products to avoid any downtime, delays or unplanned costs of operation.
The company may have to install products and vessel upgrades differently depending on the vessel interior, operating waters and undertaken tasks.
