Visualizing alarms from all platforms to one system and in an appropriate hierarchy (eg bridge critical on bridge, if not only in ECR). COCs able to receive fault conditions from digital systems 24/7. Integrated offering that is tested prior to delivery to ensure compatibility issues are resolved early (including FAT, HAT & SAT).

Pretested solution

Ownership across the full delivery. Possible to select appropriate solutions for own operations. Reduced cost of integration e.g. APIs, OPC, NMEA etc. in newbuild.
