MT bridgeMeeting the Challenges of Today and Tomorrow

Established in 2002, Marine Technologies (MT) is a U.S.-based company dedicated to providing superior vessel control and communications solutions for all types of vessels, from large offshore specialty vessels, accommodation vessels, and wind-field supply vessels to smaller tug boats and luxury yachts.

Headquartered in Mandeville, Louisiana, with offices in Norway and Brazil, MT produces and delivers type-approved DP systems in all IMO classes, as well as less complex DP and joystick solutions. MT's Bridge Mate™ Integrated Bridge System holds the DNV-GL type approval of NAUT AW — the most comprehensive bridge class notation in the industry today.

In addition, Marine Technologies has developed turnkey solutions for data collection, vessel monitoring, data-driven risk assessment, condition monitoring, machine learning, and fuel and emissions monitoring.

Innovative Products

Dynamic Positioning

Dynamic Positioning

The Bridge Mate Dynamic Positioning concept consists of a number of DP and joystick systems designed to meet the IMO-MSC/Circ. 645 guidelines. Based on a distributed architecture that emphasizes both redundancy and segregation philosophies, the robust design is ideal for vessels that do not have service and system specialists on hand 24 hours a day, every day.

Thruster Control

Thruster Control

The Bridge Mate Thruster Control System uses three control computers and a redundant communication network for the main and backup control functions. The system can be interfaced with most types of thrusters, main engines and rudders, as well as fully integrated with other Bridge Mate systems, including autopilot, joystick or dynamic positioning.

Autopilot

Autopilot

Sharing the same software and hardware platforms, the Bridge Mate Autopilot can be fully integrated with all other Bridge Mate systems with no additional hardware required. Track-control-steering-approved when integrated with Marine Technologies’ conning display and ECDIS, the Bridge Mate Autopilot is Wheel Mark approved according to the latest requirements.

ECDIS

ECDIS

The Bridge Mate Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) is an integrated information system that displays a vast array of navigation information utilizing electronic charts. Designed with the vessel operator in mind, ECDIS is a vital resource for efficient route planning and monitoring. Incorporating user-friendly functions, MT's ECDIS provides precise vessel position data, optimizing navigation, safety, and fuel consumption.

C-Link

C-Link

The C-Link 15 family of wireless radios is designed for medium-range applications, linking together a cluster of vessels, platforms and/or barges in a shared maritime or combined maritime/shore-side network constellation. The design of the network can be customized, from a simple wireless network with every wireless access point acting as a port on a network switch to more advanced MPLS networks with multiple ISPs added into the network.

Integrated Bridge System

Integrated Bridge System

The Bridge Mate Integrated Bridge System (IBS) concept is based on segregated architecture comprising a dual redundant network, flexible console and monitor solutions, and extremely durable marine-approved computers without fans or hard disks. All applications, such as ARPA radar, ECDIS, conning, cameras, sensor control, and monitoring, are readily available on any multi-function workstation.

Condition-Monitoring Website

Condition Monitoring

The Condition Monitoring System is built on years of experience in maritime operations. The system is capable of continuously monitoring a variety of variables on board a vessel — vibration, ultrasonic sound and vibration, oil monitoring, engine-bearing monitoring (thermo voltage), engine-oil mist, engine splash oil, shaft power/torque, pressure, temperatures, flow and more. All systems can be delivered separately or integrated as one system. All systems can be retrofitted without major impacts on machinery.

Fuel and Emissions Monitoring

Fuel and Emissions Monitoring

The COBRAS Fuel Advisory System helps to reduce a vessel's fuel usage and emissions. The system calculates optimal speed, trim, and draft for a planned route. A live view/display is available on the bridge while the vessel is underway, and voyage reports are generated on actual usage and savings. The system can be retrofitted to any existing fuel meter/signal or delivered together with fuel meters from Marine Technologies.

COBRAS Machine-Learning System

COBRAS Machine-Learning System

The COBRAS system is a machine-learning system that can be used as a conditional risk-assessment system or for the general monitoring of sensors and signals. The system has a variation of areas it can be used for, including condition monitoring alarms and trending, collision avoidance of vessels, fuel monitoring, and vessel-operation readiness.

Services You Can Count on Anywhere in the World

Communications

C-Comm offers over 30 years of experience in all aspects of satellite network operations providing global VSAT coverage with speeds up to 30 MBPS x 30 MBPS. The C-Comm network maintains an adequate bandwidth pool to meet client requirements without having excess capacity while providing immediate bandwidth changes on demand. C-Comm offers the gold standard in satellite network hub design and redundancy, including the use of iDirect 5IF hubs to provide virtually unlimited growth with the ability to daisy-chain multiple chassis as needed. And, for added peace of mind, C-Comm offers 24/7 technical support.

4G LTE Coverage

Marine Technologies is a premier reseller of 4G LTE coverage from Tampnet, the provider of the largest offshore high-capacity communication network in the world. Fast and reliable coverage is available for vessels operating in the Gulf of Mexico, even while underway or in rough weather. Leveraging a diverse subsea fiber infrastructure, this powerful network enables vessels to utilize advanced communication platforms, giving them maximum throughput for real-time applications that require lower latency links, such as ship-to-shore ROV piloting and high-definition video streaming.

Remote Access & Monitoring

The Remote Access and Monitoring (RAM) system provides customers with telephone support, remote monitoring, troubleshooting, diagnostics, and technical service management of all MT product lines. Supported by the same engineers that build our products, the RAM system gives MT’s technicians and engineers the ability to monitor a vessel’s critical onboard systems anywhere in the world on a single, easy-to-read screen. The data is distributed via email allowing engineers and technicians from around the globe to assist with resolving issues or confirm that the vessel is operating properly.

ABS Conducts First-Ever Remote DP/FMEA In Joint Effort with Edison Chouest Offshore and Marine Technologies

Mandeville, LA — On Tuesday, March 24, ABS performed the first ever remote Failure Mode Effect Analysis (DP/FMEA) as part of completing the special survey of machinery utilizing Edison Chouest Offshore’s state-of-the-art Remote Monitoring Center and CAT ISLAND platform supply vessel.

Chouest has the most advanced PSV fleet in the world, capable of providing remote troubleshooting and inspections. This reduces the need for technicians to travel to vessels, and supports social distancing, which is crucial in today’s business to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). ABS and ECO used this opportunity to pilot this DP/FMEA survey.

These remote offerings also reduce emissions and improve efficiency for Chouest’s clients by limiting business travel emissions to and from port locations.
