Mojo Maritime has added a new feature to its marine operations planning and weather risk analysis tool, Mermaid, letting it address technical breakdown on marine operations.
Mojo Maritime, a subsidiary of James Fisher and Sons, says that Mermaid now allows the modelling of the breakdown of critical components and their repair process, in a predictable and deterministic way.
When repairs require a return to port, Mermaid harnesses its geographic awareness to automatically schedule the transits, and where repairs are a complex operation requiring certain weather limits to be met, the tool utilises its metocean awareness to ensure that the repair can be completed.
In case when repairs are a sophisticated series of operations, Mermaid uses its nested grouping and repeating capabilities to allow realistic modelling of the situation, and where replacement components are on a lead time, or require transport from a distance, Mermaid uses its ability to model multiple vessels and ports to provide a realistic and weathered component delivery time.
“Weather is a critical and difficult-to-control risk on marine operations; and for many years, Mermaid has been providing us with accurate measurement of this risk,” said Dr Rich Walker, Mojo’s Senior Marine Operations Analyst.
“With this latest development, Mermaid can report on the impact of technical breakdown. As it integrates seamlessly with the measurement of weather risk, I believe that this adds unrivalled sophistication to our risk analysis capabilities.”
