Financially it is essential to be able to operate and utilize the vessel all year around. However ice loads exceeding the design load is a major risk for the hull and may cause permanent damage to the hull and interrupt operation. SENSFIB Ice Load Monitoring system measures the actual load on the hull and displays the utilization factor of the hull structure before yield (permanent damage).
SENSFIB ICE is the world's leading technology within ice load monitoring
Light Structure's advanced fiber optic technology is approved by all the major classification societies and is a vital tool for the increasing number of navigators without former arctic experience who will operate these vessels in the future.
SENSFIB ICE measures the actual real time load on the hull and sends data to the bridge helping the navigator in making correct decisions.
Saved data provides valuable input for maintenance planning and contributes to a safer, cleaner and more effective usage of the vessel.
SENSFIB ICE can easily be retrofitted and the return on investment is attractive, as the vessel can be better utilized and at the same time keep the maintenance costs down.
