R2S Technologies has signed a six-figure contract with Bibby Offshore to provide a visual asset-management system for the group’s fleet of vessels.
Aberdeen-based R2S deploys a range of specialised photography and software to visually capture key assets using 360° images.
Work has already begun on the diving-support vessels Bibby Sapphire and Bibby Topaz and will be rolled out to other key assets in the fleet.
The high-definition system will provide access to all areas of the vessels. Through the combination of 360° photography and purpose-designed software, R2S allows end-users to execute a wide range of asset-management strategies and can be used to record safety plans, train and induct staff and rehearse emergency scenarios.
Deploying R2S’s technology will help Bibby to increase operational efficiency and encourage and support the promotion of collaboration, communication and teamwork.
The system will also assist in training and familiarising staff prior to boarding vessels, which maximises resources and reduces costs.
Managing director of R2S Technologies Brian Dillon said: “This contract is one of three awarded to R2S in recent months by energy sector clients worth a total of more than £250,000.”
As a result of the new contract wins R2S will be adding four to its existing 15-strong workforce.
