Catenary Anchor Monitoring System


Catenary Anchor Monitoring System

    Live input of Anchor Tensions from up to 16 anchors.
    Ability to connect buoys to anchor cable.
    Barge position from independent
    GPS unit or from Navigation Computer.
    Barge heading from independent Heading sensor or from Navigation Computer.

Anchor Deployment Monitoring
The anchor cable being monitored during deployment. A single buoy is attached to the cable.

Obstruction Monitoring
Monitoring anchor cable above a pipeline or wellhead

Anchor Pattern Monitoring
Plan view of Anchor Pattern in relation to pipelines and well heads. Includes the ability to enter safety
zones around seabed features. Plan view of Anchor Pattern showing, Anchor Positions, Buoy Positions
and Touchdown Points.

Seabed Monitoring

Water depth read from echo sounder, navigation computer or from DTM model of seabed.
System using DTM Model of seabed

Realtime Tension Input

Analogue Unit for reading Anchor Tensions. Up to 16 Anchors can be simultaneously read into the program.
The analogue units use RS422 to communicate with the PC so can be situated remotely from the CAMS
computer system
