ScanReach becomes member of the Norwegian Offshore Wind Cluster
Until now cabling has been required to transfer data in
large and complicated steel environments such as ships,
offshore platforms and industrial plants. The forthcoming revolution in the maritime and offshore industries is mainly driven by the power of digitalisation and increased connectivity onboard and between vessel and land through wireless solutions.
ScanReach ensures robust wireless data transfer in even the most complex steel environments. Physics made us do some compromises – trading high-speed bandwidth with network robustness. Most importantly, it is working even when surrounded by heavy steel.
The node is the unique building block for full onboard wireless connectivity (OWC) at a disruptive cost. It uses specific radio frequencies and smart algorithms packed in a simple, yet scalable and robust network of wireless nodes.

ConnectPoB is the wireless solutions making it possible to locate personnel in distress or in need of rescue. The rescue team saves valuable time, hence maybe lives. As with many new technologies, we at the beginning experienced many of the staff onboard hesitating to start using the wristbands. We learned that they feared being monitored at all times. This is not the case, as everyone’s identity is hidden behind numbers. If an alert is triggered as a result of a person in distress, either manually or automatically, the number will start flashing in red. This indicator shows where the rescue team needs to go.
ConnectFuel, has already successfully been fitted on ships where it links flow meters that clamp onto the fuel lines to displays on the bridge and onshore providing instant visual indication of fuel consumption as well as for a selected period. Eliminating cabling, this is a huge cost saving when taking actions towards reducing fuel consumption.
ScanReach is mentioned in the Norwegian Government’s commitment to the ocean and ocean industries.
