Staff at the busy Port of Frederikshavn can now see and document every single thing that moves - while on the move themselves.
It is a really flexible system,’ says Port Assistant Jeppe Mariegaard Høgenhaug. ‘The port is being expanded, which means continual changes. I can now instantly redefine areas of surveillance any way I want, as often as I want.”To ensure maximum coverage for the staff themselves, the system has been further developed to run seamlessly on their iPads.They have just increased and intensified coverage of the harbour via a MaxSea TZ Coastal Monitoring solution that Scanel has integrated with the port’s existing systems.
‘We can also tell the system if there are individual vessels that can be expected in particular areas.
That way, we have total surveillance and full alerts, but we avoid an alarm going off every time the ferry from Læsø island sails in.’
’It records absolutely everything, in every weather, so it is especially good for documentation,’ the port assistant explains.
‘If there’s been a collision, we will have a recording that shows and documents exactly what happened. At any second, we can go back to any second over the last 14 days and recreate the situation at any point in the harbour.’
This pioneering integrated system was implemented by Scanel electronic engineers in consultation with staff at Port of Frederikshavn.
