Draught and loading monitoring (DLM)
The draught and loading monitor is used for continuous, quantitative determination of the dredged material.
The system provides the operator with a quick and complete overview of the status of the ship (draught, trim, heel, and hopper level), the operational data such as displacement, load, solid, and the actual operational mode. The measured and calculated data are clearly displayed on a dedicated screen.
Reports can be printed per dredging cycle trip, and comprise the most important data values and the loading/unloading diagram. The main trip data are also stored for later reporting and evaluation by third party systems using office tools, such as Excel. Various system data will be supplied via an OPC server, and can be transferred to supervisory systems via, for example, remote access.
