James Fisher Marine Services' Vessel Motion Monitoring System (VMMS)™ significantly improves the safety levels of wind turbine transfer boats during critical operations.
The Vessel Motion Monitoring System™ allows users to monitor all motion parameters rather than relying on significant wave height as the main limiting factor, meaning the operational window is increased. VMMS™ is designed for the two main operational phases: the transit phase (from shore to the wind farm) and the docking phase (transferring personnel to the turbines).
The Vessel Motion Monitoring System™ protects both personnel and the vessel from any incidents by monitoring heave, pitch and roll levels during vessel approach, push-ons and transfers.

Offshore Wind Management System (OWMS)™ integration
VMMS™ has the option of being used as standalone system or integrated into JFMS's pioneering Offshore Wind Management System (OWMS)™ and used in conjunction with the Intelligent Fender System™ to provide full oversight of wind farm operations.
With OWMS™ the system offers additional features such as automatic reporting for post-operation data analysis, becoming a powerful management tool for setting weather threshold limits for different vessels and supporting vessel selection.
