PortWeb has a comprehensive suite of services that enables the monitoring of offshore wind farms using redundant AIS base stations. The PortWeb system can mark the offshore wind farm using virtual AIS AtoN. All vessels entering the initial warning zone are detected and sent a preconfigured warning message using an Addressed AIS Safety Related Message (SRM) services and raise an alert with the user or monitoring authority.
The PortWeb system can be used for offshore energy platforms (oil and gas) when the correct AIS base station (1 watt RF) and Radar (dome protected) is used. The PortWeb system can be ashore with the sensors on the platform or be on the platform and monitored from the shore or be installed and monitored on the platform – the PortWeb system is sufficiently flexible to allow all three topologies.
