Ambrey, the leading security provider to the global maritime industry, and ScanReach the Onboard Wireless Connectivity company today announced the integration between the two development environments to take security, safety, and POB control in the maritime industry to the next level.

Optimised safety and security

The cooperation between Ambrey and ScanReach allows shipowners, ship managers and maritime companies to quickly optimise safety and security.

We are wholly committed to working with our clients to help them understand the threats to their people, assets and reputations, allowing them to maximise opportunities, whilst remaining safe, compliant, and robust in often complex environments. It is a strategic move that is expected to strengthen both companies’ position internationally within the Maritime Industry. 

Connect POB (Personnel on Board) safety

ScanReach’s breakthrough onboard wireless connectivity technology enables data to travel anywhere on the vessel without cabling. This technology enables data from sensors on a vessel’s cargo, equipment, or even personnel to provide real-time information with multiple uses from safety to vessel performance. ConnectPOB is the marine personnel safety management decision solution. In short, it allows seafarers to be located quickly in case of an onboard emergency.

Risk areas

The spread of sea piracy, in contemporary times, is not restricted to one particular sea area or zone. It has become rampant in almost each and every part of the world, with the following being some of the most dangerous for seafarers to sail through; Arabian Sea, Gulf of Guinea, Malacca Straits and South China Sea.

ScanReach Onboard Wireless Connectivity (OWC)

ScanReach Onboard Wireless Connectivity is an exciting development that offers increased onboard safety to all mariners. This technology will save lives, reduce accidents and improve emergency response coordination. Our collaboration with ScanReach reinforces our company vision – To be the trusted global partner for risk management solutions to the maritime and marine sectors,”

says Ben Sicklen, Business Development Manager in Ambrey.

«We are proud to be working with Ambrey. Their award-winning security solution for the maritime industry, keeping ships, crew, and their cargo safe in some of the most dangerous environments in the world fits perfectly with our ConnectPOB. This collaboration between Ambrey and ScanReach means we can enhance their services even more, by providing knowledge about who is crew versus pirate,»
