Maritime IoT extended to animal welfare

Maritime IoT connectivity is being extended to animal welfare at sea, with livestock transit and storage company SEPAB (Société d’Exploitation du Parc A Bestiaux) announcing a new strategic partnership with ScanReach.

The collaboration will see ScanReach’s IoT (Internet of Things) onboard wireless connectivity platform integrated with SEPAB’s own Exportwell application, a digital system designed to manage the welfare of livestock during longer sea passages.

The software features dashboards and monitoring capabilities that will utilise ScanReach’s Onboard Wireless Connectivity (OWC) infrastructure and sensors to ensure optimal conditions for livestock during their journey, with real-time monitoring of parameters such as temperature, humidity, wet bulb temperature, ammonia levels, and air flow across cargo decks.

The data will be made available to both the crew and onshore staff to monitor animal health and well-being during and after sea transits.

Two livestock vessels in France are scheduled for installation before the end of the year under the deal.
