Motion Reporter is a DNV GL-certified technology that measures the relative heave-movement between the supply vessel and the boom tip of the crane. These measurements can replace significant wave height that are used according to the traditional method. Using Motion Reporter, you will not only ensure less waiting for weather, but you can also avoid lifting in unsafe conditions.
Analysing vessel arrivals in 2016 and 2017 shows that the movements reported by Motion Reporter was on average 65% lower than what was reported by the wave radar. On the contrary, a few times the wave radar reported lower movements than the actual heave movement that occurred on the vessel.
- Less waiting on weather
