Maritime wireless internet of things technology company ScanReach has entered into a cooperation agreement with Trisense, a developer of industrial sensors for valve and environmental monitoring, to integrate Trisense devices with the new ScanReach In:Connect onboard data collection network.
The goal of the agreement is to expand maritime operators’ ability to wirelessly connect onboard IoT (internet of things) sensors together, from various suppliers, with Trisense specialising in delivering data wirelessly for use in valve monitoring systems.
“The parties will work together and offer cost effective IoT solutions improving our clients performance and safety,” said John Roger Nesje, CEO at ScanReach.
“ScanReach has solved a problem no one else can, creating a technology with the potential to usher in a new age of maritime safety, connectivity and smart shipping by use of new disruptive wireless IoT technology.”
The In:Connect system will be officially launched this week, alongside ScanReach’s In:Range system for personnel on-board control (POB), used to support crew and passenger safety onboard ship.
“The launch of ScanReach’s wireless digital connectivity mesh network in the maritime industry is an excellent opportunity for Trisense to connect their disruptive industrial internet of things sensors to the In:Connect systems,” said Ronny Karlsen, Director of Global Sales at Trisense.
“We are the company that has the potential ‘smartify’ the valves in the maritime and offshore sector. The company has started to sell wireless sensors for valve monitoring to the process industry in Europe and USA. The cooperation with ScanReach will make it possible to extend the business into to the maritime and offshore industry.”
