Transforming ocean industries with the world’s first wireless IoT platform

Connect wirelessly
to people, equipment,
assets and cargo 

With our wireless IoT sensor technology tailored for steel environments, it is now possible to connect wirelessly to people, equipment, assets, and cargo inside vessels, rigs, and wind turbines. A major barrier to innovation has been removed.

ScanReach’s wireless IoT platform is custom developed for industries made from complex and confined steel environments such as vessels, offshore rigs, and offshore wind turbines.

Maritime & Shipping industry

There has never been higher pressure on the international shipping industry to transform. To survive into the future, maritime technology needs a new approach.

Onboard Wireless Connectivity will be a major factor in this transformation.

Background & Problem definition

With today’s technologies, we can go wireless anywhere on the planet, but the inside of a ship remains perhaps the last frontier. The reason for this is the Faraday cage, which prevents wireless signals from passing through steel barriers, such as bulkheads and decks. Consequently, the world fleet operates inefficiently, with higher energy consumption than needed and at an unnecessarily low level of safety during emergencies. 

Changing the competitive landscape

Wireless technology has enabled us to create some incredible innovations and improvements on land totally changing the competitive landscape. Providing new wireless capabilities onboard for a low cost gives us the ability to scale quickly and connect sensors, devices, equipment, machinery, and the environment with each other via the Internet of Things, solving problems and needs never been possible before.

Technology

Over the last six years, ScanReach has developed the world’s first wireless Internet of Things platform designed specifically for complex steel environments such as onboard ships. The platform can be installed within hours, even while the vessel is in operation obtaining full onboard wireless connectivity throughout the vessel.  

Steel is no longer stopping wireless connectivity

A major barrier to innovation, problem-solving, and value creation has been removed. It is now possible to connect wirelessly to people, sensors, assets, and the environment inside the vessel, revealing a completely new level of innovation. As a result of this technological breakthrough, we will see the development and acceleration of next-generation digital maritime services and solutions potentially changing the maritime competitive landscape.

Solutions & Roadmap

Making use of our breakthrough technology, ScanReach has started the development of end-to-end solutions solving the most important problems and use cases required by the maritime and shipping industry. 

So far, we have already launched a personal safety system for the crew (ConnecPOB), a fleet data management platform for wireless collected onboard data (ConnectFleet), and wireless fuel management and awareness system (ConnectFuel).

  • ConnectPOB – Revolutionising personal safety at sea.  
  • ConnectFleet –  Connect to your fleet´s onboard wireless data   
  • ConnectFuel – Enabling new ways to improve vessel fuel efficiency. 

There is a full range of important value-creating solutions in development this year, including gas and environmental sensing, temperature, vibration and condition monitoring and weather.

Value creation and benefits

  1. Improvement in Safety and POB control 
  2. Less manual administration
  3. Reduce fuel consumption and Co2 emissions  
  4. Lowering maintenance cost  
  5. Improvement in contract win rate 
  6. All required approvals and certificates
  7. Can be installed onboard any type of vessel

The maritime and shipping industry needs to change becoming more efficient and becoming climate neutral over time. Digitisation and implementation of new technologies and solutions play a large role. The existing world fleet is large counting over 100.000 vessels over 30m. These vessels need to become smarter and more efficient in the years to come. Implementation of wireless solutions and sensors combined with increased onboard connectivity is needed. Cabling is not an option due to the time, cost, and complexity of installation.

Change the competitive landscape

The value that ScanReach is bringing through our Onboard Wireless Connectivity (OWC) technology and wireless solutions to the maritime and shipping industry is significant and can potentially change the competitive landscape over time. The value created by wireless connectivity has transformed most land-based industries. This is about to happen in maritime and shipping as well driven by OWC technology.

Our Onboard Wireless Connectivity technology and solutions will be a core driver for the industry.

We believe that implementation of OWC onboard, including using our digital solutions, can contribute to at least a 5% improvement in performance over time. This is a significant improvement, as maritime and shipping mostly are marginal businesses where competition is fierce.

Offshore oil & gas

Make your muster, search and rescue drills faster.
In case of emergency, the operating emergency rooms offshore and onshore will have instant information of personnel in distress and their whereabouts.

Problem definition

Until now cabling has been required to obtain connectivity and to transfer data in large and complicated steel environments such as onboard offshore rigs. Steel has been the main barrier for wireless data communication and the needed wireless connectivity below deck, hindering innovation within performance, safety, and sustainability.

FARADAY CAGE

With today’s technologies, we can go wireless anywhere on the planet, but the inside of a rig and aboard offshore vessels remains perhaps the last frontier. The reason for this is the Faraday cage, which prevents wireless signals from passing through steel barriers, such as bulkheads and decks. Consequently, the world fleet operates inefficiently and unnecessarily low levels of safety during emergencies and training.

REMOTE FROM MEDICAL ASSISTANCE

Safety is crucial, being remote from medical assistance. The muster, search and rescue drills are important to maintain everybody’s required focus and knowledge of actions if needed. Normally the exercises are executed every fortnight, as a minimum. The drills may last for hours if someone is not located swiftly.

Offshore wind

Get full POB control for windfarm and supporting vessels in the same wireless solution.

Problem definition

Safety for personnel and crew is high on the agenda when new offshore wind parks are being built and start operating around the world. The offshore wind market is growing fast with a nearly 20% growth rate for the next five years. Having POB (Personnel-On-Board) control on offshore wind farms is complex with a high number of service personnel spread out on different wind turbines and onboard supporting vessels at the same time.

Steel is no longer stopping wireless connectivity.

To obtain a high level of safety and POB control there is a need for a completely new wireless connectivity technology that can work well in steel environments such as inside an SOV vessel or wind turbine. The connectivity technology must have the capability to wirelessly penetrate steel to track and communicate with personnel and at the same time have the capability to connect and mesh every wind turbine and vessel in real-time. The system must be easy to install and without the need for cabling.
