ECM Award for DLM

Seawork/ ECMA Innovation Award winners 2017 Seawork/ ECMA Innovation Award winners 2017

UK company Dynamic Load Monitoring Ltd (DLM) was named winner of Spirit of Innovation award winner in the category: Marine Engineering and Construction at the recent European Commercial Marine (ECM) awards for Subsea Datalogging Tensile Link. The awards were judged and presented at the Seawork International 2017.

The winning product, the Subsea Datalogging Tensile Link is a robust link used for measuring tensile loads on subsea mooring lines, underwater deployments and other similar applications. Available in load ranges from 5 tonnes up to 200 tonnes the link measures and records the applied load using an internal data logger which was developed by DLM electronic engineers. 

Chris Scrutton, Dynamic Load Monitoring Technical Manager, commented, “The tensile link was custom built after a client approached our design team wanting a robust product that would measure the tension on subsea mooring lines and have the capability to reach water depths of 3000m. Due to their project it was important that the link records the data for up to one year and enables load readings to be recorded at a maximum rate of 1Hz. The information is stored as CSV file format which is easily accessible using already existing PC software like Microsoft Excel.”

Jake Frith, Chairman of the Judging Panel for the European Commercial Marine Awards, and Editor of Maritime Journal added, “This product captured the attention of all the ECMA judging panel as a great example of clever use of existing, proven, technology, but implemented in a new and exciting way, to solve a real-world problem."
