The C-CAMs mobile app enables quick access to key operational data in real-time

With the C-CAMs mobile app the crew can view and search for process data and look at any alarms that may have been triggered, from anywhere on the vessel at any time. This enables more efficient operations, faster decision making and collaboration across the vessel.

The app functions whenever connected the ship's WiFi network, but also when connected to mobile data as long as the phone has a secure connection, such as VPN. As it is based on the ABB Ability™ Edgenius platform, we ensure that the crew has real-time operations data available for visualization, analysis and action.

Enhance safety and operations with real-time automation information available at your fingertips.
