Helideck Monitoring System (HMS)

Our helideck monitoring system provides reliable information on helideck motion and weather conditions required during pre-flight planning and continually during the flight.

The helideck monitoring system is continually developed by our engineers to ensure it meets stringent industry guidelines and provides highly accurate helideck motion and weather information for helicopter operations.

Our software and system design has proven to be ideal for integrating differing inputs from a wide range of sources and managing data to suit a vast number of applications. Meteorological and oceanographic sensors are combined in the system to ensure real-time, clear, accurate and relevant measurements of the prevailing conditions are provided to all who require them.

These measurements can be viewed offshore, as well as onshore at the heliport, and used to compare environmental trends with forecasts to improve planning accuracy.

Key Features

  • Fully customisable system tailored to clients’ requirements
  • High specification, low maintenance system
  • Supported worldwide by regional Fugro specialist engineers
  • Integration of weather, current and motion forecasting information

Applications

The helideck monitoring system has been developed and tested under the most extreme offshore conditions and meets stringent industry safety regulations and certification standards. Systems have been installed and are supported worldwide on offshore rigs, platforms, FPSOs, TLPs and vessels.

The system is modular and can be customised to integrate a wide range of offshore monitoring sensors including structural integrity monitoring sensors and data feeds from position and altitude sensors for position and excursion monitoring.
  • Conforms with UK CAA CAP437, Norwegian, Canadian and Brazilian helideck regulations
  • Supports safer helicopter operations
  • Enhances pre-flight planning
  • Reduces operating costs
  • Reduces installation costs by interfacing with existing sensors
