ScanReach has spent years researching and testing its systems so that it can confidently offer the industry a robust wireless technology that will collect vessel data from onboard sensors without the need for costly and disruptive equipment installations. This data will then be analysed by ioCurrents to provide invaluable insights that will improve the safety and performance levels on vessels and offshore installations.

ioCurrents specializes in data analysis using AI and machine learning to output real-time fact-based insights. This helps improve decision-making with the ultimate goal of achieving operational efficiencies and reduced OpExwhich will also help contribute to a more sustainable business model and improve crew safety.

“Linking up with ioCurrents was an easy decision to make. I have worked with the team before and know how using the insights from their proprietary platform MarineInsight™ can have a dramatic positive effect on a company’s operations,”

says Sven Brooks, Chief Commercial Officer for ScanReach.

ScanReach’s technology can even be used for onboard personnel tracking and location during emergency situations to aid precision rescue team involvement and automatic mustering count.

Jon Best, Director of Business Development for ioCurrents, said,

«Forming a partnership with ScanReach is really exciting as their wireless solution makes data collection so much easier than having to install miles of cabling on a vessel or offshore platform.  Their tried and tested technology works on even the most complex steel environments and their ‘plug and play’ solution means that clients can do the whole installation themselves with minimal operational disruption. When adding sensors, such as ConnectFuel, ioCurrents can seamlessly ingest the ScanReach data and perform actionable insight to strengthen output with MarineInsight’s analytics,»
