From stand-alone machinery data acquisition and logging systems with a handful of measuring points, to integrated machinery automation and control with thousands of I/O – MAP-OE™ is the go to marine automation solution for applications of all sizes.

Designed with a flexible, scalable and modular architecture it can be deployed cost effectively across all types of vessels from workboats to large dynamically positioned offshore construction vessels. With energy efficiency at its core, the system is designed for hybrid, fully electric, shore power/charging and offshore power/charging applications.

Designed from the ground up to be integrated into our secure web data portal, ship owners have real time and historical access to valuable data and analytics whilst cost of ownership is driven down by full remote maintenance, fault finding and commissioning capabilities.

Alarm & Monitoring System

The alarm and monitoring system is meticulously designed for user-friendly navigation with a contemporary interface. Operating on a secure web server/browser-based platform, it allows access from any authenticated device on the MAP-OE network, locally or remotely. This eliminates the need for dedicated operator station machines. The system introduces unattended machinery space functionality through an Extension Alarm System for bridge and accommodation areas. Critical alarms can be monitored remotely via a dedicated app or SMS messaging on mobile phones and tablets, ensuring accessibility even when the vessel is alongside, unmanned, or laid up.

Live Data Trending, Historian & Audit Trail

Ensuring both local and secure remote access, the system facilitates connectivity from office or home devices when portal integration is implemented. It features live data trending for all analogue and digital channels, offering a comprehensive overview. The sophisticated drag-and-drop data historian streamlines root cause analysis with time range and playback features. Users can conveniently select and drag data points onto the trending screen for analysis. An audit trail/log captures all operator input to the system, providing valuable information for failure and incident investigation.

Power Management System

The power management system integrates standard features with alternative fuel, energy-saving, and decarbonization technologies. It includes synchronizing, switching, and load-sharing with various modes such as droop, isochronous, symmetrical, and asymmetrical configurations. The system enables load-dependent start/stop and machine priority selection, featuring heavy consumer blocking, blackout prevention, load limiting, shedding, and phase back functionalities. Seamless integration is achieved with diesel, diesel-electric, diesel-hybrid, and all-electric systems, complemented by common AC and DC bus management. The system also supports integration with energy storage for peak shaving and spinning reserve, along with connectivity to shore power/charging and offshore power/charging solutions.

Vessel Performance & Cargo Monitoring

The comprehensive monitoring system offers a detailed analysis of vessel performance and cargo management. Real-time tracking includes propulsion power, auxiliary generator power, energy usage, fuel consumption, heavy consumer consumption, and hotel plant operations encompassing HVAC and lighting. The system extends its functionality to cover trim, heel, wind speed, and overall weather conditions, ensuring a holistic approach to voyage monitoring. Enhanced safety and operational efficiency are achieved through closely monitored vessel motion. The system also incorporates monitoring capabilities for novel fuel-saving technologies, contributing to sustainability efforts. Additionally, meticulous monitoring of liquid cargo transfer processes enhances overall operational awareness and efficiency in maritime operations.

Propulsion Control System

The propulsion control system provides comprehensive remote control functionality for various propulsion systems, including conventional diesel, diesel-electric, diesel-hybrid, and all-electric configurations. Seamless interfaces with Power Management Systems (PMS), Dynamic Positioning (DP), and Joystick systems ensure blackout prevention, load limiting, shedding, and phase back capabilities. Efficient management of common AC and DC buses enhances overall system coordination. Additionally, integration with energy storage systems, such as peak shaving and spinning reserve, contributes to optimal energy utilization. The system further facilitates connectivity with shore power for charging and offshore power, presenting a versatile solution for a range of maritime power management needs.

Auxiliary Machinery & System Control

The auxiliary machinery and system control features various essential systems crucial for maritime vessel operations. These encompass bunkering, fuel oil, and lube oil systems, as well as seawater, freshwater, technical, and potable water systems. Control extends to bilge, ballast, and auto-healing systems, alongside exhaust gas scrubbing, ballast water treatment, valve and pump control, HVAC systems, and specialist 'mission' systems like dredging, cable lay, pipe lay, and launch and recovery systems.

Safety & Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESD)

Vessel-wide emergency shutdown systems play a vital role in maritime safety. This includes safety systems for the main engine, generator, and auxiliary machinery, along with emergency release systems for hazardous cargo transfers like LNG. The system is forward-looking, prepared for future fuel safety requirements involving hydrogen, ammonia, and methanol. Additional features include watertight door indication and fire & gas system integration to enhance overall safety measures.

Engineering & Diagnostics

The system provides detailed engineering screens enabling swift identification of failures, from individual sensors to complete real-time network diagnostics. Portal integration allows for remote support in fault finding, providing shoreside technical support staff with immediate access to assist vessel crew. This intuitive visual indication of anomalies aids in rapid fault identification and isolation.

Owner Benefits

Owners benefit from a cost-effective, flexible, modular, and scalable system, adaptable for both simple stand-alone datalogger applications and fully integrated vessel automation, monitoring, and control systems. Prepared for the latest marine energy efficiency, alternative fuel, and decarbonization technologies, the system utilizes commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) marine-approved I/O and controller hardware for reliability. Redundant I/O and controller networks ensure continuous availability, and the system operates through traditional client interfaces or web server/browser-based platforms. With a wide range of fieldbus interfaces, seamless integration with third-party equipment and systems is possible. Suitable for retrofit or new builds, the system provides comprehensive remote maintenance, troubleshooting, and support. The inclusion of a sophisticated data historian and analytics accessible via a secure web portal further enhances its functionality.
