We offer a SaaS warning system monitoring the loads in container stacks in real time. This secures safe shipping, and a reduce loss of containers at sea.
Instant warning of excessive loads in container stacks.
Real time monitoring of ship motions.
Logging of ship motion data for hind-sight analysis.
Alert ship crew on possible risk
Better informed routing
reducING container loss
GBMS has developped a Captains-Decision-Support system to show the foces in containers, lashing and twist-locks in real time to the crew. Using this system, the crew has a real-time indicator of the loads in the lashes and containers post. Having this information the crew can act if any forces appraoch critical limits. This can be done by changing heading or speed, adding additional lashing or changing the ships ballasting.
Our thorough understanding of ship motions, physics, software development and sensor technology provides you with the most advanced tools to detect the loads in your container stack. Unlike other systems, SensoriumC informs the crew in an early stage of potential unsafe behaviour of container stacks.
2000+ containers lost every year
Every year over 3000 containers are lost at sea causing a tremendous impact on the environment. Incidents like those with the MSC-ZOE (2019/263 containers lost), the ONE-APUS (2020/1800 containers lost), MAERSK-ESSEN (2021/750 containers lost), MAESK-EINDHOVEN (2021/253 containers lost) have gained attention in the media but many smaller incidents do not get this attention.
The impact of these losses became clear on January 1st, 2019 when the content of the containers of the ZOE washed up on a large part of the Dutch coast and into the UNESCO Nature Reserve ‘de Waddenzee’ . Small plastic particles were spread through water and over land, affecting the population of birds for years to come.
GBMS released version 1.3
SensoriumC is the first real time monitoring system for container loads. It shows the loads in container-posts, lashing twist locks. The forces are compared to the save working loads set forward by your class approval and Container Securing Manual(CSM). If any critical limits are approached, the crew is warned and they can decide evasive actions if needed.
Next to that, SensoriumC has easy tools to quickly review incoming BAPLIE-files. It checks the mass, total mass and the compliance with the CSM and class rules. Finally SensoriumC can create reports on the maximum loads during a trip.
SensoriumC works with a stand alone onboard web server, such that the system can be viewed from any computer in the ships network.
Detailed data are stored to reconstruct the ship motions in detail when anything might happen.
