Pilots offered real-time data
Trelleborg and OceanWise have collaborated to enable pilots to view important real-time tide and weather data using their ‘Safe Pilot’ PPU’s to help improve the safety and efficiency of operations at ABP Southampton.
Trelleborg’s Safe Pilot software uses data drawn from ABP’s environmental monitoring system ‘Port-Log’, which is supplied by OceanWise and allows easy publishing and sharing of environmental data across the port.
Environmental data is acquired by different monitoring techniques and sensors and Port-Log is commonly used to display tides, wind, waves and other meteorological and oceanographic data types, but vessel location (AIS), dynamic positioning and motion data can also be included.
The SafePilot Piloting Software is a professional piloting/navigation iOS-based software that is developed in collaboration with marine pilots worldwide. It utilises touchscreen technology built on an intelligent kernel for multi-layer handling. It also offers optional software modules that can be selected according to operational pilotage requirements.
The system supports not only the VTS team but also pilots and dredgers who also need reliable access to this key information.
As part of its work to support port operations, the OceanWise team have not only tested and proven compatibility between Trelleborg Safe Pilot PPU’s and Port-Log, they have also proven compatibility with their ENC Writer software in Trelleborg Safe Pilot, which is working successfully in PD Ports, and with QPS Qastor in Peel Ports.
