Statoil has opted for oil spill response specialist Aptomar’s management system at its field monitoring centre at Sandsli in Bergen, Norway.
Aptomar will provide Statoil with TCMS (Tactical Collaboration and Management System) workstations, training, 24/7 service and support and backup and recovery of all data. The contract value is undisclosed.
The TCMS is a tactical collaboration and management system for oil spill detection and combating, search and rescue, firefighting, ice management, surveillance and security.
It integrates information from many different sources, including daylight and infrared cameras, radars, aerostats, sea charts, GIS data, ROVs and satellite imagery, into an easy-to-operate map-based interface.
Statoil’s TCMS workstations at Sandsli, Bergen, will be connected to several offshore vessels.
The vessels are already equipped with Aptomar’s SECurus, which is utilized for search and rescue operations (SAR) and to both detect and combat oil spills.
