    We are delighted to announce that we have been chosen by The Carbon Trust to work on a new project developing a mobile app for the offshore wind industry.

    Following the success of our work for Wester Power Distribution (WPD) in partnership with The Carbon Trust on the Carbon Tracer mobile app we were invited to tender for this new work. The project is part of the Carbon Trust’s offshore wind accelerator (OWA) programme and will look at using smartphone sensors to effectively measure the performance of vessels used to transport crew to offshore windfarms.

    The Carbon Trust is an independent organisation with a mission to help organisations around the world contribute to and benefit from a more sustainable future through carbon reduction, resource efficiency strategies and low carbon technologies. The OWA is a collaborative project between The Carbon Trust and 8 offshore windfarm developers and aims to find ways in which improvements can be made across the industry.

    The project we are working on will use the plethora of sensors in smartphones to record, analyse and interpret data relating to the performance of offshore crew transfer vessels (CTVs). We will be developing a version of the mobile app for both Android and iOS platforms as well as developing a cloud based application. The data will be expressed as performance plots (P-Plots) and measured against benchmarks giving industry stakeholders new insights.

    This project also involves collaborative working with Seaspeed Marine Consulting who are worldwide specialists in the trials, testing and technology relating to fast marine craft. Like us, Seaspeed already work with the Carbon Trust and also count Rolls-Royce, Innovate UK, BAE Systems, RNLI and the Ministry of Defence among their clients.

    We’re really excited to be working on such a collaborative and innovative project that could provide the offshore wind industry with some major insights into crew transfer performance and efficiency. Watch this space for more information and follow us on Twitter to find more out first.
