Description

Ship and Mobile Offshore Unit Automation: A Practical Guide: A Practical Guide gives engineers a much-needed reference on relevant standards and codes, along with practical case studies on how to use these standards on actual projects and plans. Packed with the critical procedures necessary for each phase of the project, the book also gives an outlook on trends of development for control and monitoring systems, including usage of artificial intelligence in software development and prospects for the use of autonomous vessels.

Rounding out with a glossary and introductory chapter specific to the new marine engineer just starting, this book delivers a source of valuable information to help offshore engineers be better prepared to safely and efficiently design today’s offshore unit control systems.

Key Features

  • Helps readers understand the worldwide offshore unit regulations necessary for monitoring systems and automation installation, including ISO, IEC, IEEE, IMO, SOLAS AND MODU, ABS, DNVGL, API, NMA and NORSOK
  • Presents real-world examples that apply standards
  • Provides tactics on how to procure control and monitoring systems specific to the offshore industry

Readership

Offshore engineers; marine engineers; electrical engineers; graduate-level marine engineering students; engineering superintendents
