Consilium has launched a new web-based service for ship-to-shore transfer and playback of ship voyage data. The first order for this new Remote Playback service comes from Stena Line Scandinavia AB, following a period of close cooperation.
Consilium is one of the major suppliers of Voyage Data Recorders (VDR) for ships. Remote Playback is an add-on service for the VDR that allows selected data – from all kinds of ship systems – to be securely transferred from vessels to shore and easily replayed and reviewed by ship management and safety departments.
All steps in the data transfer and playback are integrated seamlessly in one single web application. It is now easier than ever for ship management and safety departments to review and learn from incidents and near-misses and continuously having access to important information for the entire fleet.
The communication link is based on standardized web protocols with encryption, making it both secure and easy for customers to incorporate Remote Playback in the existing IT infrastructure. In addition to this, a firewall adds an extra layer of protection, and for the on-shore users, a two-step login procedure further strengthens the security of the service.
The choice of modern web technology makes the service cost-efficient, flexible and scalable. It is easy to access the service from any computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. The service can easily be adapted according to the customer’s needs, and it is easy to add more vessels or more data resources when needed. Remote Playback also offers the possibility to set up notifications that are sent to the user via email or SMS upon selected trigger events.
Once a vessel is equipped with the hardware unit that enables Remote Playback, Consilium can also offer remote diagnostics of the VDR, for example to prepare for planned service visits or to guide the on-board crew remotely on how to trouble-shoot and even solve minor issues with connected systems. Although optimized for Consilium VDR’s, Remote Playback can be enabled for any vessel (regardless of the VDR brand on board) thanks to interface adaption kits.
“Consilium has invested in a strong global service and support organization, as well as in supporting global IT systems, to enable us to provide world best daily service and support for our customers. We offer cost-efficient retrofit solutions. Remote Playback is a cost-efficient ship management tool that further strengthens the range of services we can offer to our customers”, says Ove Hansson, President and CEO.
