Ship Data Collection System
SEEMS is an integrated Ship Data Collection System which is based on Coriolis Flow Meters as the most accurate method to measure the Fuel Consumption on any type of ship and implement Performance Monitoring.
SEEMS is an intuitive, intelligent, fully integrated Ship Data Collection System providing overall vessel’s performance monitoring, and allowing operators to make targeted decisions to better manage and increase their fleet’s performance, resulting to increased profits, optimal vessel performance and lower environmental footprint.
SEEMS as a Ship Data Collection System has a modular and flexible architecture, and can be seamlessly integrated in new buildings, as well as retrofitted to existed vessels, customized to each vessel’s and owner’s specific demands, providing the same performance characteristics and options in both cases.
The system can be integrated in all kind of vessels, both tanker and cargo vessels.
SEEMS based on its flexible and modular backbone architecture, Ship Data Collection System covers a wide range of demands. Even with the basic configuration, the system is fully scalable and can be expanded later if new needs arise, with reduced costs and setup time. All the system’s components are top of the line, marine approved equipment, ensuring long lasting quality after installation. The main advantage of Ship Data Collection System.
SEEMS is that it implements vital performance and optimization parameters readily available both to the crew as well as the company’s headquarters.
By providing all these data in a meaningful and informative way to the vessel’s crew, targeted and informed actions can be taken in real time, leading to better results fast, rather than having the performance data made available to the crew only later as a report (usually after a significant amount of time), after having the monitored data processed at the headquarters and reported back to the vessel.
SEEMS Data Acquisition Modules
SEEMS modules are responsible for collecting and processing all the measured signals from their respective spaces. The core of each DAQ Data Acquisition module is its Main Processing Unit, installed in its dedicated control panel.
Each module consists of a combined sensor and communication system for collecting and measuring all the relevant data, and driving them to the MPU (Main Processing Unit). There are two different modes available for acquiring the required data:
- By installing new sensors at the relevant locations
- By using the existing infrastructure, via communication port outputs available by each maker their systems
SEEMS Ship Data Collection System architecture is fully flexible, by treating each vessel as a unique and independent case, SELMA is able to design and offer the most cost effective and reliable solution by selecting the optimal configuration and architecture each time. If available, the most cost effective and time saving approach, is utilizing data provided via communication ports provided by existing systems.
Each DAQ (Data Acquisition) Module is configurable per vessel, and the owner can choose which of its features wishes to enable.
The available choices vary from the basic configuration, offering the standard functionality of acquiring performance data, to a full scale performance monitoring system, offering deep insight into vessel’s overall performance. From the detailed functions listed for each module below, both standard and optional components are noted.
SEEMS basic factors to measure Efficiency is based on the following aspects
- Owner Desired Accuracy/Detailed Measurement
- Type of Bunker Flow Meters Selection (Coriolis Type)
- Related with Number of Flow Meters Selection
- Position of Bunker Flow Meters (M/E & Generators)
- Processing of Fuel Consumption related with Ship Speed/Position
- Real Time Instrumentation Tool Selection
