The smarter way to do mooring monitoring and integrity assessment

Page last modified
April 11 2024

AMOG’s Smart Mooring Integrity Checker (SMIC) is an automated mooring integrity monitoring system which can detect mooring line failures in all environmental conditions. SMIC provides 24/7 oversight of your floating asset and alerts you when a failure may have occurred through our real-time vessel offset data analytics and machine learning algorithms. SMIC provides rapid indications of anomalous mooring behaviour to allow for immediate response planning – mitigating latent risks to environment, production and personnel safety.

Pros & Limitations
Reduces lag time from leg failure to response, and notifies of certain failures that would otherwise go undetected
Does not require instrumentation in the load path and addresses the limitations of simple Watch Circle analysis of DGPS data
Easy to retrofit to systems using existing instrumentation
24/7 automated monitoring and alerting reduces need for manual analysis of data
Simple use, clear results, and ‘anytime, anywhere’ data interrogation improve the visibility and accessibility of mooring integrity
Automated periodic reports can be used as evidence for compliance and integrity assurance processes
Complemented by the expert support of AMOG’s marine engineers and developers
Requires < 0.5m resolution vessel positioning – if this is not satisfied, hardware can be provided as part of the system solution
Requires > 80% reliable data feed – this can be improved by incorporating multiple data sources
Specification Title Specification Description
Automated reporting and interactive data interrogation capabilities provide strong evidence of mooring integrity for assurance processes.
Safe Operating
SMIC helps to ensure the safety of workers and the surrounding environment by picking up subtle mooring system failures before they become safety critical.
SMIC can process a variety of data sources (DGPS, 6DOF MRU, inclinometer, load cell, metocean data) and allows notification through various methods (email, text, push notifications, custom APIs).
Clarity and usability for a range of user groups is a core principle of SMIC development.
Cloud Platform
Your vessel’s full data history is backed-up, secure, and accessible from anywhere.
Machine Learning
By incorporating environmental data streams, machine learning can enable advanced predictive analytics of vessel motions.
