Projects

OceanPact is recognized for its investment in innovation and technological development, and holds relevant project patents. Meet some of our initiatives.

Simulator

Simulator

Training simulator in oil containment and recovery maneuver using offshore containment booms.

The physics of the ships and the boom are realistic. Two simulation rooms reproduce the bridge for oil containment and recovery vessels (OSRV).

The Operations Simulator is the result of a partnership between OceanPact and COPPETEC / LabOceano, according to an agreement signed with Finep.

Fixed Boom

Fixed Boom

System developed for drilling campaigns in an area of extreme environmental sensitivity.

Its patent was granted in the United States under number 7785036, and in Brazil under number 0705792-0.

Virtual Emergency Response Plan

Virtual Emergency Response Plan

The virtual reality simulator reproduces the environmental pollution scenarios caused by oil spills at sea.

Participants must adopt response procedures appropriate to each situation, such as the current buster, conventional booms, in-situ burning and application of chemical dispersants.

This multiplayer project was developed in cooperation with COPPE/UFRJ.

Oil Spill Calculator

Oil Spill Calculator

IOS application performs the estimated calculation of the volume of spilled oil observed in an environmental accident at sea.

This calculator was designed based on the document NOAA’s Open Water Oil Identification Job Aid (for aerial observation), version 2, of July 2012.

OceanVTS

OceanVTS

Coastal and offshore vessel traffic management service (VTS) via Web in real time. Assists in port traffic control operations, responding to emergencies and protecting the coast.

Resources:

Integration with Radar, AIS, CCTV, meteoceanographic sensors and radiotelephony system;

Real-time monitoring and reproduction of historical data;

Electronic and vector nautical charts;

Reports, filters and WTP ETA calculation, among other resources.

Cronos

Cronos

The Cronos platform integrates meteoroceanographic data from different sources, with the aim of reducing the time between the detection of an incident and an effective response.

Its main innovation consists in obtaining surface current maps using high frequency radar in near real time. The maps are added to the other data collected by satellite and in-situ, maintaining an updated operating system and prepared to assimilate and generate hydrodynamic current provision models.

Autonomous Ship

Autonomous Ship

OceanPact’s unmanned tug increases the safety of oil spill containment operations. Maintains the ideal formation with the mother ship for long periods, minimizing the stress of the crew.

Features: electronic control of the vessel (drive-by-wire); industrial remote control for operation up to 500m from the mother boat; autopilot following waypoints; and family manual control with priority over the others, making it possible to transfer the command to the mother ship.

Integrated Remote <br /> Oil Monitoring System 24x7

Integrated Remote
Oil Monitoring System 24x7

Operators trained by OceanPact monitor operators’ oil detection systems in real time.

The platform integrated with the main oil detection sensors on the market also allows remote control of infrared cameras.

The client can follow the reports published hourly through the restricted access portal.

Planckaero-Drone

Planckaero-Drone

Aircraft designed for operation in aggressive environments, such as the one found in coastal and offshore maritime operations. Drones are the only ones available today in the world that allow fully autonomous operation from vessels, whether small or large, mitigating operational risks.

Each drone is equipped with a camera provided with optical and infrared sensors, allowing the visualization of oil stains in any circumstance. The images produced are transmitted live to the vessel’s command bridge and to the OceanPact crisis room in Rio de Janeiro. The drone can also receive other types of sensors, such as gas detectors and hyperspectral sensors.
