Vessels on collision course - Asset protection

We will be your eyes and ears offshore, 7 days a week, 365 days per year. Let us manage all aspects of creating an efficient process for robust monitoring, detection, notification and reporting on nearby and incoming objects and vessels.

The vessel on collision course solution, is a customised turn-key service for protecting your offshore personnel and assets. Trained maritime personnel, working 24/7 to look after your investments, will detect and notify on vessels on collision course, including monitoring, documentation and alerts on activity outside the safety and precaution zones.

On your behalf, NORBIT Aptomar will deliver and install the needed sensors and software, or connect to the already existing setup. All to ensure the most cost-efficient, yet effective, monitoring and detection system.

Through the watchful eyes of the trained maritime personnel at APTOMARIN, our own 24/7 maritime control center, vessels are monitored, documented and contacted up to 20NM from the installation. We will assist the offshore OIM or manager to administer the traffic and activity outside the safety and precaution zones, in both normal operations and emergency response situations.
