Remote monitoring for vessels cuts emissions

Operational efficiency and emissions-reduction improvements are expected at the second-largest port in the UK with a new remote monitoring deal.

The Port of London Authority (PLA), has signed a new deal with Reygar Ltd for the expansion of BareFLEET, Reygar’s advanced remote monitoring system, across PLA’s varied fleet of multi-cat, crewboat, and survey vessels.

As well as informing the PLA’s preventative maintenance strategy by monitoring engine health and performance, BareFLEET provides the PLA’s operations team with a complete understanding of fuel consumption, engine efficiency, and CO2 emissions across their varied fleet of workboats. Following an initial contract for ten BareFLEET systems, the business has now signed an agreement with Reygar for 14 further installations.

Chris Huxley-Reynard, engineering director, Reygar, said: “By pulling all critical data streams from the vessel into a single portal, the PLA’s operations team will have the oversight and flexibility to make further improvements to how downtime is managed, as well as advise on how vessels can be more efficiently piloted to reduce unnecessary fuel burn and emissions.

“We are proud to support the PLA in its world-class approach to port operations, and in continuing to reduce the environmental impact of its vital work.”

Andy Osborne, marine engineering manager at PLA, said: “Advanced monitoring of vessel activities is central to our work to continuously improve the performance and efficiency of our vessels. The BareFLEET system allows us to pinpoint where and why any issues such as excess fuel burn are occurring. Acting on these insights not only reduces fuel costs, but reduces energy use across our operations. This enables us to operate efficiently and minimise fuel use.”
