Tracking vessels around the coast of Brazil

BMT was awarded a 2-year contract to provide global coverage for critical near real time vessel monitoring and tracking for 140 vessels around the coast of Brazil. 

The monitoring systems designed by BMT will provide real-time positioning, speed and heading information of the vessels as well as historical travel data for 140 vessels around the coast. Such systems are essential for the monitoring and control of vessels at sea. The types of vessels monitored for this project include: Pipe Laying Support vessels (PLSV), Pipe Laying vessels (PLV), Anchor Handling Tug Supply vessels (AHTS), Offshore Subsea Construction vessels (OSCV), Offshore Support vessels (OSV), Cargo and Crew Boats. BMT is responsible for the project management, pre-survey, installation and commissioning of the equipment. We are also providing technical support in the field and from our office in Sao Jose dos Campos in Brazil.

BMT has the invaluable experience gained over years of providing monitoring and tracking services and having performed hundreds of installations, maintenance and demobilisation of similar projects. All the tracking and monitoring systems used for this project were developed in house at the BMT office in Brazil using local expertise. The system complies with the strict requirements of Petrobras’ Annex V for vessel course tracking via satellite telemetry. Individual and simultaneous visualisations are available for the client anytime and anywhere on a dedicated web portal.

The coastline of Brazil measures almost 7,500 km. It is the 16th longest national coastline of the world. Out of the 26 Brazilian states, 17 are located on the coast. Most of them have their capitals lying near the coast. All the coast lies adjacent to geographical features can be found all through the coastal areas, like islands, reefs and bays.
