Launch of ITS Non-Nuclear Totaliser for Dredging on Europort 2017

Product Release

New Non-Nuclear Totaliser for Dredging

ITS is pleased to announce the launch of the Totalising-itometer at Euroports 2017.

This new instrument – developed with MSA-Service – integrates ITS’s already successful Densitometer with a standard flow meter to measure total production.

Not only does the new instrument provide the industry standard cross-hair indicators of flow and density, the extra flow information from seeing inside the pipeline can give operator the ability to dynamically see production levels as a guide to optimising production.  Only the tomography technology from ITS is able to provide all of this information for dredging operators.

The above screen shot has four key fields:

The benefits of this non-nuclear “totalising gamma-buster” instrument include

The technology builds on the successful Densitometer which is already being used by many of the leading dredgers in Europe as well as operators in the US and Australasia.

Universal Engine Control System

A monitoring and control system of a diesel engine is subject to vibrations and high temperatures. This causes the product lifecycle of a diesel engine to differ from the product lifecycle of a monitoring and control system.

Renewing an engine monitoring and safety system will upgrade it to the latest safety standards.

The engineers of MSA-Service Noord gained considerable experience in the development of such systems for large diesel engines at a large engine manufacturer.Using this knowledge they have developed a universal Engine Control System (ECS), suitable for large diesel engines

The system can easily be adapted to every engine type. The ECS can be used as a pin compatible replacement of an existing engine monitoring and safety system, but can also be an extension to your existing engine monitoring and safety system.

The system is built up modularly, so the systems can vary from a small type approved engine safety system to a complete engine monitoring and control system.

Options like remote monitoring using direct wiring or the cloud can be implemented.

From 7 to 10 November MSA-service is present at the Europort exhibition

From 7 to 10 November MSA-service is present at the Europort exhibition for maritime technology. We will be available to present our projects and to meet you during these four days. You can find us by number 4407 in hall 4.

Second office opened in Hoogeveen

Our second office just opened in Hoogeveen.  This office in the north of the Netherlands offers a valuable addition to the existing services of MSA-service for it is specialized in (diesel) engine monitoring and control systems. The product lifecycle of a diesel engine differs from the product lifecycle of a monitoring and control system. A monitoring and control system of a diesel engine is subject to vibrations and high temperatures. We are capable of replacing the old monitoring and control systems with a new, custom made system. We can fully integrate this custom made system into the current installation. From a simple temperature monitoring system to a complete motor control system with multiple screens, we can now design, engineer, build, install and put into operation the designed system. We can apply our systems to a wide range of types and brands of diesel engines. If you are interested what we can do for you, do not hesitate to contact us.

MSA-Service signed significant service contract with Van Oord

MSA-Service and Van Oord have signed a three-year contract for the electrical maintenance of 36 medium and small vessels. For MSA-Service the contract includes not only the electrical maintenance of these vessels but also the management of the dredging automation of all dredgers, from the dredging computer up to and including the underwater sensors on the suction tube.
Van Oord is a leading contractor specializing in dredging, marine engineering and offshore energy projects (oil, gas and wind). Van Oord's fleet consists of 80 ships worldwide. Through these contracts Van Oord wishes to work with a number of strategic companies increase availability and reduce maintenance costs.

Director Arie 't Hoen said: "For MSA-Service this is a confirmation of our good relationship with Van Oord, which we are very grateful. Van Oord can rely on the flexibility and reliability of our service-oriented organization. "
MSA-Service is a electro technical company from Hardinxveld-Giessendam in the Netherlands, mostly working in the dredging and offshore industries. With the upcoming10th anniversary for the MSA-Service they already successfully completed many projects in this dynamic world.
