CWind Implements Pioneering Bridgewatch System For CTV Safety

Reygar Ltd., the leading provider of innovative remote monitoring and reporting platforms to the offshore wind industry, has announced that it is working with CWind, part of the Global Marine Group (GMG), a principal service provider to the offshore renewables and utilities market, to drive the development of a new safety feature within the BareFLEET system. BridgeWatch, a software upgrade for BareFLEET’s reporting console, will streamline communications during crew transfer vessel (CTV) operations by providing a distraction-free route for the master to ‘check in’ with the shore team at regular intervals.

As part of its commitment to crew and technician safety, CWind has recognised the need to take preventative action and mitigate against the sort of unplanned circumstances that can often arise offshore. To simplify communications between the bridge and shore team and provide peace of mind while the vessel is in transit, CWind is working with Reygar to test and deploy an upgrade to BareFLEET that alerts the master to record their presence on the bridge at regular intervals.

BareFLEET automatically monitors the health and performance of critical equipment across each vessel, inclusive of engine health, fuel consumption, motion, and impact onto the turbine. The system also allows the crew to manually input data and observations into BareFLEET’s digital reporting platform, giving CTV operators full visibility over activity on board the vessel as data is transmitted to the shore team via the cloud.
