Aquarius Management and Automation System

Proven, Reliable and Flexible Marine Computer System

Emissions Reporting, Alarm Handling, Fuel Consumption Monitoring, Data Logging, Renewable Energy Management and more!

The Aquarius Management and Automation System or Aquarius MAS is a cost effective fuel oil consumption monitoring, alarm handling and data logging platform suitable for a wide range of ships. The system is based upon the reliable and robust KEI 3240 Data Logger which is already in use on hundreds of vessels including tug boats, training ships, tankers and bulk ore carriers.

Aquarius MAS for Ships Trends DisplayThe Aquarius MAS can record performance data plus be configured to control equipment and automate processes to turn on/off equipment. In addition the amount of energy provided by marine solar and/or wind power systems can be monitored against fuel consumption to verify savings when ships are fitted with renewable energy systems.

CO2, NOx & SOx emissions can also be monitored or calculated.

Data collected by the system can be recorded to a hard drive or flash memory and analysed in order to fine-tune the operational performance of the ship or vessel the system is fitted to.

Fuel oil consumption data can for example be logged and then sent back to shore for reporting and analysis purposes.

Data from the Aquarius MAS can also be output to external software applications or transmitted to fleet management centres or support offices. Data, screen-shots and reports can also be printed.

Flexible Hardware & Software

The system is designed to operate in a multi-vendor environment and can interface with equipment and systems from a wide range of vendors. A variety of analogue and digital inputs can be connected via the Integrated Link System (ILS) or via RS-232C, NMEA or MODBUS interfaces for example. Ethernet and WLAN connections are also supported. Other connections can be supported via protocol converters.Aquarius MAS ILS Unit

Flexibility is a key strength of the Aquarius MAS meaning that the system can be upgraded and expanded as required during the life of a vessel. If new equipment is installed or existing equipment replaced the Aquarius hardware and software can be re-configured as needed to deal with these changes. Even renewable energy devices can be connected to and monitored by the system.

The Aquarius MAS is also simple to operate and diagnosing problems is assisted via in-built diagnostics, system alarms and the ability to configure spare ports on ILS units. In addition, a system with redundant/back-up elements is also available.

A range of screen & system displays can be configured depending on the shipowner's requirements. A few examples can be found via this link: Aquarius MAS Screen Displays

Fuel Oil Consumption Monitoring & Emissons Reporting

Ship Fuel Oil Consumption Display

The Aquarius MAS FOC monitoing and logging module can be provided as part of an Aquarius MAS package or as a standalone solution known as Aquarius MAS Compact. Several display screens and options are available and FOC is monitored in real time plus logged to a memory disk.

A compact MAS packaged focused on fuel oil consumption monitoring is also available. Please see Aquarius MAS Compact for details.
