PSM ClearView Oily-water Overboard Discharge Prevention System
21 April 2009
ClearView has been developed by PSM for integration into the TRITON Oily Water Monitoring System of Transas Telematics Ltd., to offer a complete solution to decrease the probability or prevent, a vessel discharging overboard oily water with a parts per million (ppm) content above the current MARPOL regulations.
Meeting IMO MEPC 107 (49) and SCG MED requirements may not be sufficient to avoid fines or prosecution.
No matter how carefully controlled OWS systems are, accidents and equipment malfunctions occur. Incidents of over limit discharge are easily traced by GPS and Satellite imaging, leading to costly fines and vessel exclusions. Recently, these fines for non-habitual occurrences have been set by the courts at several millions of US$ per incident.
ClearView and TRITON will take the worry out of accidental overboard discharge by overriding the existing OWS plant and all machinery with a real-time monitoring and fail-safe activation system. For added security an automatic GPS "Geo-Fence" and auto-interlock and divert control ensures no out of limit discharge can occur in protected areas. Real-time data gathered from the ship is securely stored but linked into Ships Communication System and available to be viewed via satcoms by Operators and Authorities as required.
The system is designed to be a complete and integrated equipment package that is easily and inexpensively tailored to suit each vessel. Signals are collected from existing sensors in most cases saving unnecessary duplication and cabling. PSM manufactures one of the widest range of Type approved sensors and can provide any additional measurements and alarm initiators that may be required. The system panel and enclosure provide all the hardware termination facilities to make installation fast and simple and during a vessels normal turnaround wherever possible.
The ClearView display is easy to read and provides a simple menu structure and clear graphics interface for operators, allowing them to track the efficiency of the system, highlight areas of malfunction or failing components as well as optimising the system performance. All functions and operations are automatically and securely logged giving the senior officers the peace of mind that their ship is truly "Clean Compliant"
