AST Marine Sciences provides telematics to the renewable sector with 100 AT Gensets for Temporary Power Generators

A renewable company operating a large Wind Farm off Germany in the North Sea approached AST Marine Sciences (MSL), asking for a reliable solution that could monitor and control their generators used for supplying temporary/emergency power.

The Challenge

The company in question were having issues with contractors delaying and interfering with operations by adjusting settings on the generators, as well as turning them off which had a huge impact on KPIs. This had the potential to cause downtime, lower productivity and even the potential for penalties which would lead to financial loss

How Applied Telematics Helped

The wind turbines under construction were outside of the traditional GSM/GPRS coverage area and required satellite connectivity to relay information, making iRAMS for Generators the best solution.

As well as being able to monitor and control the generators (gensets) sited anywhere around the world by using satellite, iRAMS for Generators optimised the refuelling logistics by sending alerts when  fuel levels drop below a user defined pre-set limit, for example, less than 75%.

iRAMS significantly lowers operational costs with remote diagnostics and increases efficiency by reducing the requirement for physical site visits to locations.  With offshore unplanned maintenance, expenses can often reach in excess of £10,000 a day if engineers need to be deployed, iRAMS is an essential addition to reduce these costs.

In Summary and Going Forward

After the installation of iRAMS unauthorised 3rd party contractors were interfering with the operation by turning the generators off, distorting the gensets uptimes and impacting on KPI potentially meaning penalties. iRAMS for Generators was able to report on these instances and send alerts to the company alerting them of any changes in status even when the generator door had been opened and closed.

Max Challis, Technical Manager for AST Marine Sciences commented: “Satellite telematics complements GSM telecommunications and now offers renewables, oil and gas sectors all the benefits of remote industrial asset monitoring and control of temporary power anywhere.”
