James Fisher's Intelligent Fender System (IFS)™ has been designed to significantly improve safety by monitoring push-on forces during offshore transfers.
IFS™ offers reassurance to vessel owners, crew and wind farm owners by measuring the forces generated during push-on operations by transmitting real-time data to the bridge, ensuring the forces exerted onto the offshore asset don't exceed the pre-determined limits.
IFS™ consists of a sophisticated bow fender with integrated load cells mounted within a sub-frame, which has been designed to maximise load cell sensitivity and to ensure the greatest level of accuracy. This enables the ship's master to safely stay within these parameters whilst still enabling optimum engine thrust to ensure safe transit.
