Tanker Berthing Aid

Marine Applications

The OSPREY DGPS tanker berthing system is a portable pilot berthing aid for any size a tanker providing a low light or NIGHT BERTHING facility with visual and audible approach data and collision warning.

Single point mooring buoy SPM

 

Terminal Jetty And Sea Island

The OSPREY system tracks multiple moving objects and thus provides sub meter positional accuracy between the tanker and mooring buoy. The system provides the following information:

   

The OSPREY system provides a relative DGPS solution for use with a moving base station such as a FPSO. The system provides the following information:

 

The OSPREY system overlays the moving tanker on a digitised MARINE CHART of the terminal to provide an absolute reference system for tanker berthing at a jetty or sea island. The system provides the following information:

Relative distance (CLOSEST POINT) between SPM and tanker

Relative speed and angle of tanker approach

Difference in relative heading (angle)

Absolute tanker heading

Absolute tanker speed, direction, and acceleration

SPM mooring position

Hawser tension (with load pin installed on buoy)

   

Relative distance between either the BOW/STERN or CLOSEST POINT from FPSO and tanker

Relative speed and angle of tanker approach

Difference in relative heading (angle)

Absolute FPSO and tanker heading

Absolute tanker speed, direction, and acceleration

Hawser tension

   

Relative distance (CLOSEST POINT) between and tanker and user defined way points

Relative speed and angle of tanker approach

Absolute tanker heading

Absolute tanker speed, direction, and acceleration

Wind speed and direction

Sea current speed and direction
