In a time when energy companies are coming under increasing pressure to reduce costs, the need for reliable and innovative solutions that focus on improving efficiency and optimising ROI has never been more important.
A company fully focused on this core objective is the SeaRoc Group. Formed in 2002, SeaRoc Group has almost 15 years’ experience in offshore renewable energy and has been working in the sector since the start of commercialisation. From the outset, SeaRoc Group recognised the need for a user-friendly, integrated system that improves operational safety and efficiency, and helps to reduce project costs. In 2006 the SeaRoc Group went on to develop SeaPlanner, now an industry leading marine management and monitoring tool that does just that.
SeaPlanner integrates live data feeds from a wide variety of sources for a complete real-time overview of site operations throughout the lifetime of a project. Developed in-house by SeaRoc Group’s team of developers, SeaPlanner is provided as a modular system, giving it the flexibility to be customised to suit the needs of any project scale or phase.
SeaPlanner’s core modules include Operations Manager for live tracking of personnel, vessels, air traffic and project assets; Personnel Manager for transfer planning, manifest, secure RFID access control and certification management; Induction Manager which allows personnel and contractors to be fully inducted before they arrive on site; and Metocean Manager for monitoring site conditions with wind and wave data feeds. SeaPlanner’s capabilities allow for the right information to be distributed to the right people at the right time.
