Seaspeed’s vessel monitoring systems (VMS) has been developed to provide short, medium and long term ship performance monitoring, with regular automated reporting by daily email. At present, the system is configured to monitor vessel motion in six degrees of freedom (along with an additional independent sensors for stabilised gangways for example), vessel speed, true and relative vessel headings, wind speed (true and relative), significant wave height, and period and fender forces for catamaran transfer vessels (CTV) operations.

Fuel consumption, shaft power and vessel displacement and trim can also automatically monitored and analysed. The VMS may be adapted to suit any particular requirements and can be hired or purchased.
