Optilift Motion Reporter is a tool designed to increase the weather window for offshore lifts, from platform to vessel, rig to vessel and vessel to vessel. This is accomplished by measuring the effective significant wave height on the vessel deck, as a replacement to the traditional wave radar. The readings are used as input parameters to the crane load chart to set safe weight limits, instead of significant wave heights. The Motion Reporter is certified by DNV GL according to offshore crane standards EN13852-1 and DNV 2.22. It is ATEX certified to be used in Zone 1 explosion hazardous areas.
The product is in operational state in the North Sea (UK and NO), including the Norwegian Sea, but has only undergone lab-tests for cold climates. No instrumentation of supply vessels is required.
